St. Louis Rams hosting Auburn's Greg Robinson for visit

It was more a question of when than if, but the Rams are reportedly hosting former Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson on a visit to the team's facility Wednesday.

Robinson could be the Rams' choice with the No. 2 overall pick in next month's draft. With the way the club took a commanding presence at the pro-day workouts of the draft's top offensive tackles, including Robinson's, it would certainly come as no surprise.

Robinson's visit was reported by CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler via Twitter.

Each NFL team can bring in 30 prospects for visits. As a strong candidate to be the first offensive lineman chosen in the draft, Robinson figures to visit many, if not all, of the clubs set to draft in the top 10. NFL Media analysts Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis all have projected Robinson to be gone no later than the No. 5 overall pick (Oakland Raiders), with Jeremiah sending Robinson to -- you guessed it -- the Rams.

The Rams' options are many, particularly if the Texans opt for a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick. At that point, St. Louis could draft Robinson, or perhaps Texas A&M's Jake Matthews to give quarterback Sam Bradford improved pass protection. Clemson's Sammy Watkins could be a nice fit as a wide receiver for the Rams as well, or the club could trade down with a team hankering to draft South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney ahead of the Jacksonville Jaguars (No. 3 overall pick).

Whether the Rams take Robinson or not, however, he'll be in high demand early in the draft.
