Scouting Report
Athletic, quick and lean, Roberson is considered a project at the next level, and behavioral issues only further damage his draft status. He's projected to be selected in the middle rounds, but will likely be used only on passing downs and special teams. Roberson's size and leaping ability are considered pluses against taller receivers, but he struggles with tackling and lacks the intensity teams look for in a potential run stopper. Roberson struggled in that area with Florida, totaling just 46 tackles in three seasons, while intercepting just three passes. He's also aggressive while going for the ball, and will need to work on his timing. Roberson is known for grabbing at receivers, a habit that could draw pass interference calls. Scouts also want him to add bulk in hopes of becoming more durable. He struggled with injuries throughout his collegiate career, including a broken vertebra in his neck in 2011. Roberson also found himself in trouble at Florida, where he was charged with possession of alcohol by a person under 21 years old and was suspended for one game for violating team rules. Despite those issues, some teams find his athleticism and ability to read the quarterback as strong qualities to build on. Roberson may have a long way to go to become an NFL starter, but a team with a quality secondary may take a chance on him with hopes he can develop into a solid contributor.
