Cam Robinson visits Bills and Panthers, with Jaguars ahead

Former Alabama OT Cam Robinson is visiting the Carolina Panthers Monday, between visits with the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

2017 NFL DRAFT

In a draft considered thin at the tackle position, Robinson is among the best draft options NFL clubs have, along with Wisconsin's Ryan Ramczyk and Utah's Garett Bolles. The Panthers, Bills and Jaguars all have a draft need along the offensive line. Robinson was in Buffalo last week, per Rapoport. Robinson mentioned the pending Jaguars visit at Alabama's pro day, as well.

NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah wrote last week that Robinson's stock is on the rise, and has him slotted to the Denver Broncos at No. 20 overall in his latest mock draft.

"He's not without faults on tape (he overextends too much and his balance is an issue at times) but he has outstanding size, length and power," Jeremiah wrote. "He had a combine workout that was better than people expected, and he was very impressive in his team interviews. I won't be surprised if he ends up being the first offensive tackle selected, landing between picks 15 and 20."

The lack of balance has been a problem at times for Robinson in pass protection, and he drew his share of penalty flags at UA, as well. Still, the level of competition he faced in three years at Alabama includes not only some of the draft's top prospects (three games each against Myles Garrett and Derek Barnett, for instance), but a slew of current NFL players as well (Joey Bosa, Shane Ray and Shaq Lawson, to name three).
