Mr. Roy is listed at 6'4, 280 lbs. In 2010 he was a menace on an very talented, fast defense while being credited with 50 tackles on the year and was second on the team with 14.5 TFLs and 8.0 sacks. Thus far in 2011 he has been credited with 9.0 and 16.5 tackles for a loss. Mr. Roy is very good at disengaging from offensive tackles and rarely allows them to control him at the LOS. He just is not a guy with a high motor, he also shows very good burst.
Some plays I like that are available online can be found below.
0:02 - gets caught up at first but then sheds the blocker to make a tackle
0:37 - even though he missed, he didn't bite on the run action and showed good burst
3:27 - he does not make the play, but shows some relentlessness and recognition of where the play is, often prospects at the college level would get gobbled up and lose sight of the play taking themselves out of it
5:24 - shows the ability to recognize that he cannot get the sack, so he gets his arms up and almost picks off his own tipped pass
If you can catch highlights of Nevada's game vs. UNLV this year you will see more impact plays netting 4 tackles for a loss and a sack.
He often shows athleticism to drop in coverage which is rare for a guy of his size. I wonder what he really measures in it. Does he have the ability to play 5 tech or OLB? Is he best utilized as a LDE in a 40 front?
This year he has lined up outside shoulder of the guard more and still makes those impact plays. Since he has played DT I am assuming he has put on some weight this year. He might be best positioned at 5 tech the next level.
Any one have anything else on this guy? Very intriguing prospect.
I remember seeing this thread. Upping it since he is on TV tonight in the bowl.
my scent?...like making love to a lumberjack
<TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
<+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
<+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

Weird. I stumbled upon this guy the other day and was asking Shane and a couple others on Twitter about him. I guess 18 sacks and a ton of TFLs over a 2 year stretch will get you noticed at this stage of the game.
Oakland's defense has "Third Downs Syndrome." Draft accordingly.
