Cam Robinson has load of visits set up

Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson may be the top prospect at his position in the 2017 NFL Draft, but no one’s quite sure where he slots into the first round mix.

As a result, his pre-draft visit dance card is all over the map, literally and figuratively.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Robinson will visit the Texans (25th), Broncos (20th), Bengals (ninth), and Giants (23rd).

That goes along with previously reported visits to the Jaguars (fourth), Panthers (eighth), and Bills (10th).

While “top tackles are safe picks” is one of those pieces of conventional wisdom that has grown less wise in recent years, the law of supply and demand dictates that he’s going to be a first-rounder. But trying to predict where in that round he’s going to fall is tricky.

  1. The Bengals won’t take him. I believe they’ll take O.J. Howard. Why?…because Tyler Eifert’s contract is up after this season and that’s just what Mike Brown does. He’ll take Howard just so he can negotiate from a position of strength. Of course the Bengals won’t re-sign Eifert anyway because Mike Brown hates to compete for his players. (See Andrew Whitworth, Kevin Zeitler, Marvin Jones. Mohamed Sanu, and a host of others.)

    Um, you realize resigning their own guys is really all that this team does well? And your examples are weak. Andrew whitworth is the only one they really should have paid top dollar for, and even then he got crazy money and length for a guy his age. Zeitler got the most money ever for a guard, Marvin Jones turned down almost the same money the bengals offered just so he could be a team’s number one, sanu was maybe the 5th best receiving option on the team at the time (the combination of Lafell and Boyd was almost identical in production to the two departed receivers). Mike brown may be cheap and scared to pay guys in free agency, but locking up his own guys is exactly what he does well.
