(FootballStL) -- 6'5 and 332 pounds. That's all that needs to be said about the Rams newest offensive lineman. With the 2nd overall pick of the NFL Draft, the Rams grabbed, perhaps, the most powerful player in this draft.

The Rams need for youth and size on the offensive line was a must. The NFC West , and its physical brand of football,  made Robinson's selection almost necessary. The Rams have been struggling to protect Sam Bradford over the last couple of seasons.

Even though he's a left tackle, Robinson will likely begin his career at guard. With the re-signing of Rodger Saffold at right guard, Robinson should start at left guard. Robinson has endured some hardship over the last few years. A Louisiana native, Robinson was displaced for two years by Hurricane Katrina, and also lost his father in April of 2012. 

If you roll the tape from his days at Auburn, Robinson led the Auburn running attack to over 320 yards per game. Robinson is just what the doctor ordered, for a Rams team in need of line help.
