Overview:

Rogers had a nice career at Virginia Tech, where he had 165 rushes, for 692 rushing yards, 4 rushing touchdowns, while he excelled in the passing game, with 72 receptions, for 802 receiving yards, and 7 receiving touchdowns. He has good vision, he has good speed, he is a solid pass catcher, he is a tough runner, and he is a good lead blocker. He also has good hands, is sure handed, and he is tough to take down. He is a bit undersized when it comes to his height. With that said, I view Rogers as a late round pick, with the possibility of going undrafted.
