Draft Analysis:

"In the first round, the Packers go get Damarious Randall. Now they get Rollins, another corner/safety. Rollins played basketball and you can see how athletic he is. On the football field, it's all about his ball skills. You can see the basketball background; he really can high-point the ball." -- Daniel Jeremiah

Overview

After four years of basketball and with a semester of eligibility left, decided to give football a shot in 2014 after being away from the sport since high school. Named 2014 MAC Defensive Player of the Year and first-team All-MAC. Finished the season with seven interceptions, including a pick-six against Ohio. Participated in the 2015 Senior Bowl. Four-year starter for the Miami (Ohio) basketball team. Only player in school history to record seven steals in a game twice. Honored with Richard Shrider Defensive Player of the Year Award for the basketball team three different times. Four-year football letterman and three-year team captain for Wilmington High School (Ohio).

Analysis

Strengths

Four-year basketball player. Seamless transition to football field as a cornerback. Has point guard's foot quickness and hip fluidity. Plays with balance and above-average play strength. Well-built and competitive. Can be a disruptive press-corner. Has NFL-caliber "click-and-close" ability. Good leaper. Attacks the ball and receiver at high point. Good instincts and overlaps to make plays beyond his territory. Ruined hitches and bubble screens his way. Physical and has a strong desire to tackle. Wraps up receivers and throws his body at running backs in open space. Crowds receiver downfield, giving little breathing room. Has recovery quickness and natural anticipatory traits in coverage.

Weaknesses

Likely lacks the necessary experience to come in and help right away. Too reliant upon foot quickness. Needs technique work. Outside-in releases get him turned around. Shows gambler tendencies. Always sniffing around on underneath throws and opens himself up to double moves. Will get caught lunging in press coverage. Basketball is his first love. Scouts wonder whether he loves football enough to keep working at it. Must answer questions about his long speed.

Draft Projection

Round 2 or 3

Sources Tell Us

"We are grading him as a safety. He can play cornerback too but he has to be protected a little bit because I don't think he's fast enough. I think he's a 2nd round safety but a 4th round cornerback." - AFC defensive backs coach

Bottom Line

Rare start-stop-start suddeness. His ability to change gears instantly gives him a chance to develop into a talented cover cornerback. With more work on technique and overall discipline, Rollins has the physical tools to become a very good NFL starter.
