RODERICK STEPHEN
Position: DE
Class: Sr
School: Wake Forest
Conference: ACC
Ht., Wt.: 6'2½, 260
40 Time: 4.92
Grade: 3.18

BIO: Moved into the full-time starting lineup as a senior and produced 46 tackles with four tackles for loss and a single sack. Reserve lineman prior to 2002.

POSITIVES: Athletic lineman waiting to have a breakout season. Plays with forward lean, gets leverage on opponents and moves well laterally, stringing plays out to the flanks. Keeps his feet driving up the field and plays faster than his forty time.

NEGATIVES: Small, handled at the point by a single blocker and not much of a factor on the field.

ANALYSIS: Athletic skills could help find him a spot on the two deep in a four-three alignment.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
