  • Hometown: Lincolnton, N.C..
  • High School: Lincolnton
  • Class: 2015
  • Position: DT
  • Size: 6-3/293
  • Ranking on Scout: | No. 14 DT | No. 3 in N.C. | No. 151 Overall
  • Recruiting: Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, North Carolina, and N.C. State were Roseboro's final five. He ended up choosing Michigan, a program with a lot of tradition.

    Scouting Report: Roseboro has really started to come into his own this year. He has impressed at multiple camps in 2014 and his body has really developed over the past year or year and a half.

    He is up over 290 pounds now and he carries it well. He has a great base, good lowerbody strength, and he has improved his upperbody strength. He still needs to improve his pure power as a defensive lineman, his hand usage, and his variety of moves off the ball, but he is disruptive and effective.

    Defensive tackle is likely his home, but strongside end or five-technique is not out of the question. He has good length, he has shown the ability to rush the passer from the edge, but his frame and his quickness is best-suited for the three-technique.

    Roseboro plays hard, he shows a good motor, and you see the confidence level growing. He is a big body in the middle who can play with leverage and push blockers backwards. He moves well side-to-side, he can get up the field off the ball, and he closes on the ball well for a big defensive lineman.

    Overall, Roseboro is a strong, versatile defensive lineman with upside. He on the athletic side, he still has plenty of room to improve, and he is a kid that knows how to win and play hard. He can be a three-down lineman on the next level with his ability to play the run and to rush the passer.
