The deadline for NFL teams and players who were tagged is on Thursday. Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Robinson was added to the growing list of players who are expected to play the 2021 season on the tag:
This news comes after the Jags invested the No. 45 overall pick into Stanford left tackle Walker Little. However, with Robinson on the franchise tag (valued at $13.7 million), it appears Little could be viewed as the starter after 2021 unless he temporarily switches positions.
Little was one of the players who Jags offensive line coach, George Warhop, praised for his preparation during organized team activities and minicamp. Even if that translates to a solid performance in camp, though, it’s hard to envision Robinson not being Trevor Lawrence’s blindside protector during his rookie campaign.
Robinson will enter camp with 47 starts to his name since being drafted by the Jags in 2017. He’s become more known for his run blocking abilities over his pass blocking skills, but that fits well with what Urban Meyer could want in 2021 as running backs James Robinson and Travis Etienne could be a nice rushing tandem.
