OG candidates:

Though Robinson hasn’t played a game yet in the NFL, his presence should make an immediate impact on the Rams front line.

He may weigh 332 pounds, but he has speed (4.92 40-yard dash) and athleticism that make him tough to get around.

Robinson led an offensive line that was dominant in the run game at the collegiate level. His Auburn Tigers averaged 328.3 rushing yards per game, the best mark in the nation. That’s great news for Lynch, who is in the backfield on our All-NFC West team.

Iupati, like his teammate Staley, has proven several times his skill on the line.

He has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past two seasons and was named to the All-Pro team in 2012.

Similar to Staley, Iupati has gained a nice reputation for blocking Kaepernick’s blindside and leading San Francisco’s rushing attack.
