OT Cam Robinson — Jacksonville Jaguars
Robinson has had his ups and downs throughout his career, but the 2021 season was his best yet. He was able to tally a 67.4 PFF grade, the highest total in his career. Playing last season on the franchise tag as well, the former Alabama OT was able to earn a small raise, going from $13.75 million to $16.662 million this coming season.
The Jaguars need as many starting-level players on their o-line as they can get. Robinson hasn’t been called for a holding penalty since 2019 and he allowed a career-low one sack in ’21. From getting past Urban Meyer’s madness to the development of Trevor Lawrence, bringing back the OT for his sixth season could be key in getting the Doug Pederson era off on the right foot.
My only issue, though, is that Jacksonville has the No. 1 pick in the draft for the second season in a row. With Lawrence under center, Pro Bowler Josh Allen at defensive end, as well as top OT prospects like Evan Neal and Icky Ekwonu, the Jags are in a pickle. Do you select one of those prospects or do you look to a different position to target? Would they field offers to trade the pick?
Personally, I would draft the OT I had higher on my board and then I’d reshuffle guys like Robinson and Jawaan Taylor, even after having solid seasons last year. Having too many good o-linemen is not the worst problem to have in the NFL. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy actually picking those OL prospects when you’re on the clock.
