Pos: 
Relatively athletic small-school defensive end who could also be used at linebacker. Athletic, quickly changes direction and pursues the play with speed from any angle. Explodes off the snap, can bend off the edge and displays a variety of hand techniques to get off blocks. Plays with a nasty attitude, attacks opponents and works to make plays. Quick-footed in every direction and shows the ability to drop off the line and make plays in space.
Neg: 
Lacks size and strength against the run. Runs around blocks and takes wide angles. Average instincts.
Analysis: 
Roberson comes off a tremendous senior campaign and showed flashes of ability during Shrine Game practices. He's a pass-rush specialist who can be used out of a three-point stance or standing over tackle, but he must earn his wage on special teams.
