Tyler Roehl
SI Grade
3.05
Position: Class:
5Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
5-9.5, 227
40 Time:
4.61

BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons and named as an All-American after his junior season. Rushing totals last year included 171/1,053/13 after 207/1,431/21 as a junior.

POSITIVES: Roehl is a solid small-school ball carrier who may be required to make a transition to fullback at the next level. He has the mentality and approach to succeed in the NFL, and at the very least, could be a productive short-yardage runner.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the agility and speed to get around the corner. Does not show natural hands out of the backfield. Overall game lacks quickness.

ANALYSIS: Strong, aggressive ball carrier who plays the game with a hard-nosed attitude. Patiently waits for blocks to develop, displays good running vision, and finds the open lanes. Tenacious, works runs and keeps his feet moving on contact. Breaks several tackles during a single run, and picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Runs through the hole with authority and displays a burst.

PROJECTION: FA
