Greg Robinson had an inkling for quite some time that the Rams were interested in him at No. 2 overall in the 2014 NFL draft. But the massive offensive tackle from Auburn was taking nothing for granted.
“I knew they were very interested, and a lot of people projected me to go there,” Robinson said. “But I just wanted to wait it out, just to make things seem more real. Because I didn’t want to think I was there before it actually happened.”
In New York City on Thursday morning for NFL draft festivities, Robinson got a pretty good hint: the Rams called him just to double-check his phone number.
“It wasn’t a specific coach (on the line),” Robinson said. “They just wanted to confirm my phone number.”
