Prospect Profile: Michael Roos

Michael Roos School: Eastern Washington
Ht: 6-6.5 Wt: 320 40: 5.33 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign.

Positives: Tall, athletic blocker with the footwork and skill to protect the blind side. Quick setting in pass protection, bends his knees and gets leverage on opponents. Effectively uses blocking angles and body positioning to seal defenders from the action. Alert, quickly picks up stunts or blitzes thrown by opponents and works hard. Nasty run blocker who jolts opponents with hand extension and works hard to remove them from the line. Plays with forward lean and works hard to finish.

Negatives: Marginal skills in motion or on the second level. Not explosive into run blocks. Has difficulty redirecting to linebackers.

Analysis: A solid technician who's improved every year, Roos possesses good upside for the next level. Mainly used at right tackle in two postseason games by NFL scouts thought he seems to have enough foot quickness and lateral slide ability to protect the blind side at the next level. Solid development prospect whose abilities make him worth consideration in the late part of the draft's first day.
