Strong Points

Tough and aggressive. Reliable as an inside runner, blocker and short-range receiver. Can face up and anchor in pass protection. Shows power as a runner and consistently gets yards after initial contact. Has good hands and does a good job getting open on short-range passes.

Weak Points

Short with short arms, which can hurt him in pass protection against long-armed defenders. Just adequate speed.

The Way We See It

Fullbacks aren't in high demand as draft choices but Rogers is the best fullback in the country. He can block, run inside and is reliable as a receiver. Can be a three-down player in some offensive schemes and minimally could be invauable in 3rd and medium situations and short yardage and goal line. He will also be a very effective special teams player because of his aggressive, competitive nature. Late pick because of his position, but he will start in the league. Grade is higher than where he will get drafted.
