Pick Analysis: Myron Rolle is a huge bargain for the Titans with the last pick of the sixth round. His intelligence goes without saying, but he brings a core competence to his playing the secondary. He's a little tight in the hips, and he didn't make a lot of big plays, but he's solid and dependable.

Overview

Rolle has great size and strength for the safety position but lacks great burst, lateral agility and change of direction in coverage. He does have good instincts and vision off the hash and likely his best fit is in two deep zone coverage schemes. Rolle tends to play high in his peddle and is a bit stiff in his hips. He is a solid run support defender filling the alley but not a "hammer" as a tackler. Myron missed the entire 2009 football season due to studying in Oxford (Rhodes scholarship) but will prepare to enter the 2010 NFL draft.


Strengths

Rolle has outstanding size and strength for the safety position and maintains an incredibly high conditioning level. Plays with terrific intelligence and shows good instincts coming up in run support and against the pass in zone coverage. Is a highly-competitive and productive player who was very durable in college.

Weaknesses

Rolle missed entire 2009 collegiate season studying in Oxford (Rhodes scholarship), raising questions about his long-term desire to play football. Is only an average overall athlete for the position, who showed some hip stiffness in college but answered some questions in this area at the Senior Bowl.

Grade

5.6
