Pos: 
Underrated linebacker who is constantly around the action. Explosive, fires up the field to fill gaps and aggressively defends the run. Moves well laterally and displays speed in pursuit. Effective in the open field, easily redirects to ball carriers and wraps up tackling. Breaks down well, uses his hands to slide off blocks and gets depth on pass drops. Shows good awareness in coverage and makes a lot of athletic plays on the field.
Neg: 
Slow to get off blocks and gets caught up in the wash. Possesses more of a burst rather than true long speed.
Analysis: 
Roberts is a productive linebacker with an aggressive style and suddenness. He plays with a special-teams mentality and could be a very good backup on the inside of a 3-4 alignment.
