Overview

Rogers is an undersized cornerback at the FCS level, but he is a smart football player that could contribute in sub-packages. He lacks the size and explosion to stick in man coverage at the next level, but he has very good field awareness in zone coverage. He flashes the ability to jump underneath routes and has the ball skills to make plays. He is aggressive in run support, but struggles to disengage from blockers and does not deliver big shots when tackling. Rogers will likely sneak into the later rounds because he is an asset in zone coverage.


Strengths

Rogers possesses very good instincts to anticipate routes and is always in sound position. Well balanced athlete that changes direction with ease and has smooth body control. Flows to the ball in zone coverage and has the hands and leaping ability to come down with interceptions. Willing tackler in run support.

Weaknesses

Does not have the deep speed to recover once he gets beat. Lacks an explosive first step to always stick coming out of his breaks. Will get boxed out by bigger receivers on jump balls. Not big or strong enough to take on blockers and will whiff on tackles in the open field.

Grade

3.1
