Carlos Rogers School: Auburn
Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 196 40: 4.46 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Four-year starter named as an All-
American and handed the Jim Thorpe Award
as the nation's top defensive back last season.
Posted 47/2/10. Burst onto the scene as a true
freshman with 58 tackles and a team-leading
12 pass breakups.
Positives: Nice-sized cornerback
coming off an outstanding senior campaign.
Quick backpedaling off the line, fluid transitioning
to run with opponents then immediately gets his
head back around to locate the ball. Positions
himself nicely against receivers to make a play,
stays with opponents out from their breaks and
displays a sense of where the ball is. Possesses
a burst of closing and recovery speed, gets
vertical, then adjusts in midair to defend the
throw. Works well with safeties, displays a sense
of timing and anticipation as well as outstanding
ball skills. Comes up the field to support the run
or helps out defending screens.
Negatives: Tends to
come out of his backpedal rather quickly when
placed in man coverage. Supports against the
run yet not strong at the point of attack and
has difficulty bringing ball handlers down on
initial contact. Bites on double moves and at
times plays catch-up, letting receivers pass
Analysis: Finally meeting expectations
and getting his game back to the place it was
after his freshman campaign, Rogers made a
major leap up draft boards last season and is
now positioned in the middle of round one. Best
suited for a system where he is backed off the
line of scrimmage and facing the quarterback, he
also possesses the abilities to develop into a fine
press-corner. Offers a large degree of upside but
must continue to build upon the momentum he
started last season.
