Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson will enter the 2014 NFL draft, forgoing his final two seasons of eligibility with the BCS championship runner-up Tigers.

Robinson, a redshirt sophomore and a possible first-round selection, announced his plans Tuesday on his Twitter account.

This was a tough decision but I have decided to declare for the NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Robinson has started at left tackle in each of the past two seasons at Auburn, helping pave the way for an offense that averaged an FBS-leading 328.3 rushing yards per game this season.

A third-team All-American this season, Robinson recently was tabbed as the No. 9 overall draft prospect by ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr.

Robinson was one of the offensive stars in Auburn’s 34-31 loss to Florida State in the Vizio BCS National Championship on Monday night.
