INDIANAPOLIS – One offensive lineman from Thibodaux (Auburn’s Greg Robinson) and another from New Orleans (LSU’s Trai Turner) were among three players at the NFL Scouting Combine who posted the fastest 40-yard dash times in their position group on Saturday.

Robinson, a tackle, ran an official time of 4.92 seconds at Lucas Oil Stadium, which was second-best among 40 results. Turner, a guard, ran an official time of 4.93 seconds, which was third.  Michigan tackle Taylor Lewan ran the fastest time, 4.87 seconds — he’s projected to be one of the first few picks in the draft in May.

Robinson, a redshirt sophomore, is expected to be one of the top few draft picks, too. His time certainly didn’t hurt his standing, and he had the No. 7 most reps (32) bench-pressing 225 pounds.

The website NFL Draft Scout projected Turner, a sophomore, to be a late-round pick — if he was drafted at all. His good showing in the 40-yard dash created a buzz around the site of the combine. He was among several lineman that had 25 reps in the 225-pound bench press.
