Bio: 
Former walk-on who won the starting fullback job as a freshman. Started 25 career games, including 12 as a senior, when he rushed for 283 yards and two touchdowns and caught 24 passes for 301 yards and four scores through the air. Totaled 453 yards and four touchdowns in 2015 and 370 yards and one score in 2014.
Pos: 
Undersized college fullback with limited upside. Displays excellent vision, gives effort and plays through the whistle. Agile, displays quickness carrying the ball and runs hard on the inside. Solid receiver out of the backfield who adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception with his hands. Keeps the play in bounds after the catch.
Neg: 
Possesses average strength at the point of attack. Gets pushed back into the pocket. Did not stand out during Senior Bowl practices.
Analysis: 
Rogers was a solid offensive threat at the fullback position on the college level but lacks the size and speed for Sunday football. His approach and intensity could help him catch on as a second fullback in a West Coast offense.
