2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Andre Roberts



Strengths:
  • Highly productive and consistent
  • Sneaky athletic
  • Has an intriguing second gear in open field
  • Savvy route runner
  • Understands how to set up corners
  • Simply doesn't drop the football - period
  • Very good sideline awareness
  • Nice footwork
  • Changes speeds, uses head fakes, dips hips - does the little things as a receiver
  • Comes back to the football and presents a window
  • Very competitive and fearless
  • Great Y.A.C. receiver
  • Love his hand-eye coordination
  • Terrific intangibles
  • Highly underrated skill set





    Weaknesses:
  • Lacks elite vertical speed
  • Might struggle against upper-echelon corners in press man
  • Average size
  • Not very good on jump balls
  • Poor run blocker

    Summary: Don't ask me why Andre Roberts isn't a shoe-in for the second round - I have no idea - he should be. Roberts possesses a lot of talent and should be a very productive receiver in a West Coast offense at the next level. Roberts is exactly what you look for as a No. 2 receiver because he's extremely reliable, competitive and maximizes Y.A.C. Roberts was easily the best receiver at the Senior Bowl and he followed that up with a great Combine. Obviously, playing against inferior competition in college isn't a major concern. Some team will get a steal in the third round. Roberts is my No. 5 rated receiver in the 2010 NFL Draft.

    Player Comparison: Derrick Mason. I don't expect Roberts to be a superstar, but like Mason, I expect him to be very productive and consistent in the NFL. I also see a lot of Greg Jennings in Roberts, but I'll be conservative with this comparison.
