Auburn's meteoric rise from an 0-8 SEC record to BCS Championship runner-ups made stars of several of the Tigers' best players, and one of them is taking advantage of that stardom to move on to the next level.

Direct from the Twitter feed of Tigers' left tackle Greg Robinson:

A redshirt sophomore from Thibodaux, La., Robinson started all 14 games at left tackle in 2013 and 11 in his 2012 freshman campaign, making good on the promise that saw him ranked as a top-10 offensive tackle in the class of 2011 by 247Sports. Thanks in no small part to Robinson's efforts, Auburn finished the season No. 1 in the FBS in rushing yards per-game.

The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Robinson is widely projected to be a first-round selection in April's NFL Draft, with's Rob Rang currently projecting Robinson to go to the Falcons with the No. 6 pick.
