Bio: 
Two-year starter named Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 in 2016 after making 56 catches for 696 yards and four touchdowns. Caught 28 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns as a junior. Had 21 receptions for 245 yards and four scores in 2014. Freshman totals include 22 catches and 257 yards.
Pos: 
Sure-handed possession receiver with poor speed. Displays terrific focus as well as concentration, makes the difficult catch in a crowd and looks the ball into his hands. Comes back to the quarterback, effectively uses his frame to shield away defenders and makes the catch away from his frame. Plays with balance and coordination and plucks the ball from the air. Quickly exits breaks, exposes himself to the big hit and works to make the reception.
Neg: 
Poor speed and struggles to separate. Strictly an underneath possession receiver but lacks great height.
Analysis: 
Rogers is a terrific football player and a dependable receiver who could play at the next level in a system which asks him to run short and intermediate patterns.
