There’s a reason NFL scouts are excited about Cam Robinson.
The Alabama left tackle is rated by many as the No. 1 tackle in the upcoming NFL draft. His 6-foot-6, 326-pound frame makes him the ideal size to match up against great pass rushers.
It’s not just his physical tools, though. His actual performance on the field for the Crimson Tide has been excellent in 2016.
According to CFB Film Room, Robinson allowed QB Jalen Hurts to be pressured once over Alabama’s past three games. He’s done that against some pretty talented defenses as well.
Alabama LT Cam Robinson allowed just 1 QB pressure in 77 pass pro snaps vs Tennessee, Texas A&M and LSU.

Robinson played 77 pass protection snaps over that three-game stretch. The junior allowed his quarterback to be pressured, not even sacked, just once. And he did that against defenses with premier edge rushers like Derek Barnett, Myles Garrett and Arden Key.
If he keeps that up, those draft projections will probably be pretty accurate.
