On the Hoof: Appears to be a thick, muscled-up cross between an outside linebacker and a slightly shorter Calvin Johnson.
Needs Improvement: Must improve route running. Has a tendency to round off his routes and allow defenders to make plays on the ball.
Most Impressive: Possesses excellent body control with strong hands that allow him to catch balls when covered. Rogers also has tremendous size and strength, which are used to break tackles in the open field.
Conclusion: Once he learns to run precise routes, Rogers could have a Julio Jones-type impact at the next level. He will be able to outmuscle and use his deceptive speed to beat most defensive backs.
