Overview:

Rogers had a very productive career at USC, playing in 49 career games, where he had 127 receptions, for 1487 receiving yards, and 11 receiving touchdowns, proving to be a difference maker for the Trojans offense. He has good size, he is a solid pass catcher, he is sure handed, and he is very experienced. He also is a good route runner, he is a good deep threat, he goes up and gets the ball, and he fights for the ball. He also is a good redzone threat, he also consistently beats his defenders, he breaks tackles with ease, and he makes defenders miss with ease. He is also tough to take down, he makes spectacular catches look easy, he is a good blocking receiver, and he has a nice stuff arm to get the defender off of him. On the other hand, he does not have elite speed, but that does not hurt his game at all. With that said, I view Rogers as a day 3 pick, somewhere in the mid round range when it is all said and done.
