With Jadeveon Clowney off the board, the St. Louis Rams addressed a major need with their first of two first-round selections.

The Rams selected Auburn tackle Greg Robinson to help solidify an offensive line that has been a problem area for years.

St. Louis had their choice of either Robinson or Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews to fill their need at tackle. Ultimately, the Rams felt Robinson was the better fit for them.

Robinson is a massive body at 6-foot-5 and 332 pounds. He should join the Rams as the team’s projected starter at right tackle with the potential to replace Jake Long at left tackle after this season. Long’s cap number skyrockets next season and could become a cap casualty, opening up a door for Robinson to become the starter on the left side of the line into the future.
