This is the 75th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one.
#78- Greg Robinson– T- Auburn
Coo-coo-ca-choo Mr. Robinson. I actually never knew what coo-coo-ca-choo meant until research for this article told me that it is a saying that means “it’s all good” or “no worries”. I read that on the internet so I am sure it is completely accurate. For our younger audience I could call the Browns’ left tackle, Greg “Meet the” Robinson, because I have a feeling his play this season is going to take a few of us back in time, reminding fans of a young Joe Thomas.
The entire Browns offense started to turn around once Robinson was named the starter at left tackle midway through last season. There were obviously other factors that helped right the ship including a coaching change, healthy receivers, and Baker Mayfield gaining more and more experience with every start. I do think a healthy portion of that credit must go to Robinson though. The former number two overall draft pick really shored up the line.
That offensive line had the best pass protection numbers in the entire NFL over the final eight games of last season. They only surrendered five sacks over that period and led the NFL in fewest quarterback hits allowed. John Dorsey traded away starting guard, Kevin Zeitler this offseason. This has led many to question the strength of th unit for the 2019 season. With Freddie Kitchens and Todd Monken scheming up plays, a better receiving corps, and a more experienced Baker Mayfield, I believe that this line will hold up just fine.
