Not sure how big this club is, but Tre Mason says he wants to prove any doubters wrong at the NFL Combine.

The now-former Auburn running back, he of 1,800-or-so yards last season, will go Sunday in Indianapolis, and he promises to put up a fast time in the 40. Check back at AuburnTigers.com for that. 

In the meantime, NFL types are still abuzz about former Auburn offensive lineman's Greg Robinson's performance Saturday, even talk that he could be the No. 1 overall pick. There was a story, with video evidence, on Robinson's day Saturday. 

Now, NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks has listed Robinson as one of the Combine's winners. Here's what he said: 

Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn: It's hard to find 332-pound offensive linemen with light feet and swivel hips, which is why the combine has been buzzing since Robinson stepped on the turf Saturday. Robinson put on a spectacular show during the workout, showcasing his outstanding athleticism and movement skills in front of scouts. Robinson clocked an official time of 4.92 seconds in the 40-yard dash, while also positing a 9-foot-5 broad jump. He complemented his impressive showing in speed and agility tests with a strong performance in positional drills. Robinson moved like a dancing bear on the turf, alleviating any concerns about his ability to take on elite pass rushers off the edge. Overall, the stellar workout in front of hundreds of scouts and coaches will not only send Robinson's draft stock soaring -- it could make him enter discussion as the draft's top overall prospect."

Here's a review of Greg Robinson's day...

Auburn punter Steven Clark also had a go of it Saturday. Former Auburn defensive end Dee Ford and defensive back Chris Davis will hit the field early in the week.
