Overview:

Roberts had a nice career at Toledo, where he caught 70 passes, for 832 receiving yards, and an impressive 22 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, he is a great pass catcher, he is a good blocker, and he is very experienced. He is also versatile, as he can lineup at tight end, and wide receiver, he is sure handed, he breaks tackles with ease, he is a good route runner, and he is hard to take down. He does not posses elite speed, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I expect Roberts to be a day 3 pick, likely somewhere in the 5th-6th round range when it is all said and done.
