BIO: All-Conference selection last year after leading the team in receiving with 42/485/5. Junior numbers included 22/282/5. Used at both tight end and as a slot receiver.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized pass catcher who can be used at a variety of positions. Quick into routes, runs well laterally and finds the open space in the defense. Makes the errant reception in stride, extending to pull the pass from the air. Holds onto the ball after taking a big hit, then breaks tackles running after the reception. Solid downfield blocker.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the playing speed to consistently make plays into the secondary. Overall game does not show much explosion. Marginal strength as an in-line blocker.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working football player who loves the game, Roberts could be used as a situational pass-catching tight end in third down\red zone situations.
