Auburn left tackle Greg Robinson, who just completed his redshirt sophomore season on the Plains, has decided to forego his remaining eligibility and enter the 2014 NFL Draft. Robinson announced his decision via Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

I want to thank my teammates and I love them all. Also thank you Auburn Family the best fans in college football #Together— Greg Robinson (@GregRobinson73) January 7, 2014
In a statement released by the university, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn praised Robinson and thanked him for his time in an Auburn uniform.
"Greg played a big part in our success this season and I appreciate everything he did as an Auburn Tiger during his career. He has a bright future ahead of him at the next level and we wish him nothing but the best."
Robinson, who is listed at 6'5 and 320 pounds, is projected as a first-round draft pick, and some say he could go off the board in the top 10. He's made a name for himself blocking in Auburn's run-oriented offense, consistently overpowering opposing defensive linemen and getting to the second level to make additional blocks.
A former four-star prospect out of high school, Robinson was a part of the Tigers' 2011 class, which also included Reese Dismukes, Quan Bray, Kris Frost, Brandon Fulse, Robenson Therezie, Tre Mason, Jermaine Whitehead, C.J. Uzomah, Sammie Coates, Angelo Blackson and Anthony Swain.
War Eagle, Greg. Get money and crush NFL D-linemen.
