34 days until kickoff: Cam Robinson, the 34th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-Training Camp Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

With just 34 days until kickoff, let’s talk about Cam Robinson — the rookie left tackle holding it down on the Jacksonville Jaguars’ offensive line and the 34th overall pick from the 2017 NFL Draft.

Monster vs. Mammoth

Brett Kollmann has blessed this website with many a film breakdown, but this is going to be one of the more interesting. How does the Jaguars’ second-round pick do against the best pass rusher in the country last year?

Here’s what Kollman had to say after breaking down the film:

When examining Myles Garrett and Cam Robinson's 2016 campaigns through the lens of the NFL draft, no game was more important for both of them than Texas A&M's mid-season clash with Alabama. Robinson was the best offensive tackle that Garrett would face all season, while Garrett was of course the most talented edge rusher that Robinson would play against within his brutal gauntlet of a schedule.

Both of them exchanged body blows for four straight quarters, but at the end of the day it was tough to declare either one of them a true "winner" in their individual matchup. Robinson managed to not allow a single sack throughout the game, but Garrett still made plenty of splash plays regardless of whoever he lined up against (Robinson included). As far as high-profile battles between future first round picks go, this one was as even as anyone could have ever hoped for.

With any luck, we'll get to see these two face off against each other in the pros for years to come.

What do you think? How did Robinson do against Garrett?
