Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson visited the Texans, per report
Cam Robinson could fill the Houston Texans’ void at right tackle.
There aren’t many guarantees in the life.
But I believe there is one heading into this year’s NFL draft.
The Houston Texans are expected to draft an offensive tackle as they look to make an upgrade at right tackle.
Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson met with the Texans last Friday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
Robinson is an intriguing prospect given the fact that he played college football at Alabama and is a monstrous 6-foot-6, 322 pounds.
Robinson has the physical traits to be very good in the NFL but needs to improve his technique in order to be great at the next level.
One of Robinson’s biggest weaknesses is pass blocking. This leads me to believe that he might be better suited as a right tackle instead of protecting a quarterback’s blindside.

This would allow Robinson to not have to match up against the NFL’s top pass rushers as he gains experience.
Of course if the Texans were to draft Robinson, he would come in and play on the right side since they already have veteran Duane Brown at left tackle.
With Brown not getting any younger, there is always a chance Robinson could develop into an NFL left tackle down the road.
