As the NFL Scouting Combine began the first day of measurements and workout events yesterday, one player dominated the day. Auburn tackle Greg Robinson, who weighed in at a svelte 332 pounds on his 6'5" frame, completed 32 reps on the bench press, then spoke to reporters about his fierce playing style despite a relatively reserved personality.
"I wouldn't say [I play] angry," Robinson said, according to SB Nation's Dan Kadar. "But, I'm not trying to be nice."
"I'm far from a thug. I've never been in really any trouble," Robinson continued. "Growing up, I was kind of bad but that was because I had older brothers. If they're not looking for a thug, they can invest in me."
For the Miami Dolphins, who are coming off a season in which they allowed a franchise record 58 sacks and saw their offensive line decimated by desertions, suspensions, injuries, and poor play, a player of Robinson's skill could be exactly what the team needs. With all the bad publicity surrounding the franchise, adding a player who is "far from a thug" may be the perfect fit.
