Monday night, Auburn lost in the BCS championship game.  Less than 24 hours later, the Tigers lost a player who played a significant role in getting them to Pasadena.

Via Twitter, Greg Robinson announced the he will be leaving The Plains early and preparing himself for the May NFL draft.

“I am so thankful… for everything [the coaching staff has] done leading us to a memorable season,” the left offensive tackle wrote. “I want to thank my teammates and I love them all. Also thank you Auburn Family the best fans in college football.”

The 6-5, 320-pound redshirt sophomore started 24 of the 25 games in which he played the past two seasons.

“Greg played a big part in our success this season and I appreciate everything he did as an Auburn Tiger during his career,” AU head coach Gus Malzahn said in a statement. “He has a bright future ahead of him at the next level and we wish him nothing but the best.”

    For those of us who aren’t Auburn fans, how about listing his position and maybe his projected draft round.

    Can you not tell from the picture he is an OT?

    Apparently you missed this part:

    This dudes a beast. I had no idea how good he was until i watched the game last night. On the int play i was amazed to see him fly in and make the tackle on Joyner. To soflosportsfan he probably wont make it past the first round. Guys that big that move like that kid get paid a lot of money.

    The top of this year’s OT group is insanely talented.

    Jake Matthews, Greg Robinson, Cameron Erving, Cedric Ogbuehi, Cyrus Kouandjio, and Taylor Lewan should all go top 20. I wouldn’t be shocked to see Richardson sneak into the first round as well.
