Jaguars working out Cam Robinson, per report

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be holding a private workout for Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson, according to a report by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The Jaguars previously had Robinson in for a pre-draft visit a few weeks ago, but those visits are limited by what teams can and cannot due. On these pre-draft visits, players cannot be timed or tested, so a lot of it is more of a feeling out process and getting to know the player.

With a private off-site workout however, teams can time and test players. Teams can run them through drills, etc. It's similar to what Jaguars defensive coordinator did last season, traveling to hold a private workout with Yannick Ngakoue a week before the draft, who the Jaguars ended up selecting in the third round.

With the Jaguars both hosting Robinson for a visit and now holding a private workout for him, that's a bit more than just doing their due diligence. Now, I don't think the Jaguars will take an offensive lineman with the No. 4 overall pick, but it wouldn't be a huge shocker with Tom Coughlin at the helm now, considering how much emphasis he has always put on building up the trenches.

If the Jaguars did pull the trigger on Robinson at No. 4, it likely means one of their top guys went in the first three picks and they feel Robinson can either start right away at either tackle position or guard. Then again, maybe they view Robinson as the best player in the NFL Draft.
