Auburn left tackle Greg Robinson was expected to perform well at the combine, but the official numbers are turning heads.

Robinson ran an official 4.92 on Saturday morning, slightly off from his unofficial 4.88 on his first 40-yard dash and 4.84 on his second try. His unofficial 10-yard splits were 1.69 and 1.68. These numbers are impressive for any offensive lineman, but considering Robinson is 332 pounds, it's even more remarkable.

While the numbers are impressive, it reinforces what the tape shows: Robinson is a tremendous athlete with light feet and easy movement skills. He also lifted 225 pounds 32 times on the bench press and with 35-inch arms, that number is equally as impressive. But again, the tape backs it up. Robinson uses his strong, aggressive hands to latch and drive defenders out of the play in the run game.

Robinson, who didn't start playing offensive line until his junior year in high school, is still learning the game and needs time to develop, especially in pass protection. But the raw skills are extremely impressive and along with the notable numbers he's producing Saturday at the combine, Robinson is proving why so many around the league believe he's a top-five overall talent and this year's top tackle prospect.

Michigan OT Taylor Lewan had the fastest 40-yard dash time among offensive lineman at 4.87. For a list of updated OL workout times, click here.
