(KSDK Sports) -- The Rams made quite a statement Thursday night with the selection of OT Greg Robinson with their #2 overall pick. First, they extinguished rumors that Sam Bradford was on his way out, instead the Rams gave Bradford some much needed protection.

The offensive line immediately receives an upgrade with Robinson, who will likely slide in at one of the tackle positions right away.

Short bio: Robinson is 6-5 and 332 pounds of pure nasty. Over the past decade, no offensive tackle at the collegiate level has proven to be more dominant at the point of attack. Robinson can step in Day 1 and improve a team's rushing attack, and he has the natural ability to develop into a top-notch pass protector.

Quick take: The Rams may have signed LT Jake Long to a $34 million contract last offseason, but he's an injury risk, and the Rams are unsettled at right tackle. Greg Robinson can start immediately at either right tackle or guard. His talent invokes comparisons to former Ram, Orlando Pace.

Sam Bradford hasn't been able to stay consistent in his time with St. Louis, and part of that is because he gets knocked down and is rushed frequently.
