Overview

Rolle's lacks the size to become a starting linebacker or the athleticism for a potential move to safety. However, possesses adequate range, power for his size, and the mentality necessary to contribute as a backup and on special teams. Has average range against the run and is willing to take on blockers but isn't a true sideline-to-sideline guy and can take too long to shed blocks or be dominated by powerful lineman. Displays the ability to drop into zone coverage and read a quarterback's eyes but lacks height and quickness in man coverage. Has good character, leadership qualities, and bloodlines (cousin of Antrel Rolle). Rolle likely will be a Day 3 pick.

Analysis

Strengths

Rolle flashes the ability to diagnose and find the football. Plays tough and not afraid to mix it up despite size. Never shies away from contact. Plays hard and doesn't stop until the whistle. Comfortable dropping into zone coverage. Has extensive special teams experience. Great intangibles, team captain.

Weaknesses

Lacks height, size and speed and range are only adequate. Is a tick late diagnosing on occasion and will over pursue at times. Can be swallowed up by bigger linemen when attempting to anchor. Struggles to disengage from blockers. Lacks the height to stick with taller tight end in man and the hip fluidity to mirror quicker backs.
