Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 50 tackles (six for loss) with one forced fumble and seven pass breakups as a senior. Posted 57 tackles, two interceptions and two PBUs in 2016. Made four starts and recorded 26 tackles and three pass breakups as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Underrated safety with a complete game. Displays good recognition and instincts, plays heads-up football and quickly gets to the action. Fast and fluid moving laterally, displays outstanding range and quickly gets outside the numbers to help cornerbacks. Keeps the action in front of him, anticipates plays and has a nice move to the ball. Shows a quick closing burst, works hard to defend the run and stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks.
Neg: 
Has a thin build. Not a stout tackler and often drags opponents down. Overmatched by bigger pass catchers and tight ends.
Analysis: 
Roberts is a relatively athletic safety with enough range and speed to back up in center field.
