Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Rodriguez is a potential fullback/H-back candidate with intriguing physical tools. He can fill a variety of roles on offense, while also acting as a core special teams players.

  • 6'1" Height
  • 32" Arm Length
  • 242LBS. Weight
  • 9 1/2" Hands

Overview

Rodriguez is an interesting prospect in that teams will have to find abnormal ways to get him the ball in space at the next level. He has the physical traits to play in the NFL. Rodriguez has true tweener size and isn't an obvious tight end or fullback. He is a serviceable player at the next level in the short passing game.

Analysis

Strengths

Rodriguez is a very reliable pass catcher who is a crafty route runner. He was a go-to look for Temple to pick up first downs and maneuver through defenders for extra yardage. He is quick off the ball and understands how to leverage his body. He is a smooth runner who looks natural in the open field.

Weaknesses

Rodriguez is almost nonexistent in the pass game, and his athletic ability is suspect when attempting to get to the second level and block linebackers. He may have a tough time winning with strength or speed at the next level, two traits that players in his role often rely on.
