BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter and All-Conference choice since his junior campaign. Senior totals included 59/15/9.5 after 64/10.5/7 the prior year. Solid special-teams contributor who has blocked kicks in the past.
POSITIVES: Undersized 'tweener who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Displays a quick first step off the snap, rushes the edge with speed and displays good lean. Intelligent, diagnoses the action and makes plays in every direction. Flashes the ability to drop off the line and play in space.
NEGATIVES: Marginal skills pursuing from the backside. Easily controlled at the point by a single blocker.
ANALYSIS: A hard-charging defender productive on the college level, Rogers possesses marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. Could back up as a rush linebacker in a 3-4 system yet must make his mark on special teams.
