Cam Robinson could see the field as a starter in the NFL sooner than later.
As pointed out by AL.com’s Mark Inabinett, the former Alabama offensive lineman has “a clear path” to start after offensive lineman Branden Albert announced his retirement on Monday. Albert, who was thought to be the Jacksonville Jaguars’ left offensive tackle this season, was a nine-year veteran who arrived in Jacksonville from the Miami Dolphins in March.
Jaguars coach Doug Marrone has said Robinson, who was taken 34th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, is a left offensive tackle for Jacksonville. Robinson won the 2016 Outland Trophy and was a three-year starter at Alabama.
It would be quite the development for Robinson if he was slotted into a starting job early. The Jaguars might find that the more experience he receives, the better. It will be fun to follow this situation throughout the preseason.
