Temple's Quincy Roche Getting Day 2 Grades

NFL teams are always on the look out for prospects who can affect the quarterback, and pro teams feel that they can never have enough pass-rushers. Thus when a prolific pass-rusher continues to rack up sacks, NFL attention is sure to follow, and that is the case for Temple defensive end Quincy Roche. Over the past three seasons, Roche has totaled 26 sacks, and as a result, multiple pro teams have given him a third-round grade, according to a handful of team sources.

Roche was the AAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2019, collecting 13 sacks, one forced fumble, six passes batted and 44 tackles. He had six sacks as a sophomore after totaling seven in his freshman year. Roche is listed at 6-foot-4, 235 pounds, and scouts feel he will get bigger. Team evaluators really like Roche's initial explosion off the snap and how he closes on the quarterback. They feel Roche will grow as he ages and develop in a pro strength and conditioning program.

One team source said they had graded Roche as a fourth- to fifth-rounder, but three others said Round 3 and one said third- to fourth-rounder. However, Roche could rise if he works out well. There are a few issues that keep teams from grading him in the early rounds, and the most cited one is lower body stiffness. They feel there is a lack of lower body strength and believe he doesn't play hard all the time. Thus, Roche could improve his grade if he returns for his senior year and gets stronger in the lower body while also showing an improved motor in 2020.
