Former Alabama and current Jacksonville Jaguars lineman Cam Robinson is ready to do whatever it takes to succeed in the NFL.

During an appearance Wednesday on 1010XL/92.5 FM’s “Jaguars Today” in Jacksonville, Florida, Robinson addressed rumors of being switched to offensive guard during his first season to compensate starting left tackle Branden Albert, who the team acquired via trade from the Miami Dolphins in March.

“I’m ready to play wherever I’m needed but I haven’t really talked to anybody about playing guard,” Robinson said. “The guard notion, I really don’t know where it came from but, like I said, I’m always prepared to step in at any position and play where I’m needed.

“I definitely think I have the talent level and ability to play (left) tackle, but I haven’t really discussed the future with them too much. I just want to focus on where I am right now, just come in and try to prove myself to my teammates and to my coaches that I’m worthy to step in and play anywhere.”

Last week, Robinson said his and former rival Leonard Fournette’s experience winning games at the college level would help provide a positive culture in Jacksonville. The former Outland Trophy winner added

“I think a lot of it is honestly coming in and being a sponge and soak up as much from the older guys as possible,” Robinson said. “But at the same time coming in and showing them you have a great work ethic and that you want to be a lead by example guy. One thing I always hear is ‘you want to be seen, not heard.’ You always want to come in and show them you’ve got the right mindset, you’ve got a winning mentality and you’re willing to do anything it takes to win.”
