Pos: 
Somewhat athletic college defensive end with solid size and speed. Easily moves about the field, breaks down well and plays with proper pad level. Explosive, fires off the snap and keeps his feet moving. Easily changes direction and moves fluidly in lateral pursuit to chase ball carriers. Fights with his hands and flashes pass-rushing skill.
Neg: 
Possesses an average closing burst. Cannot get off blocks and gets handled at the point by a single opponent.
Analysis: 
As a sophomore in 2016, Roseboro showed flashes of ability as a rotational player on North Carolina State's talented defensive line. He never elevated his game the way I thought possible, and he's gone from a potential late-round choice to an undrafted free agent. He offers solid size as well as growth potential and could eventually develop into a backup defensive end.
