Notes:

Captained the football, basketball and track-and-field teams as a California prep. Redshirted in 2007 after arriving as a 205-pound outside linebacker. Appeared in 11 games in ’08, recording 11 tackles, one tackle for loss and zero sacks. Suffered a stinger against Fresno State and sat out against San Jose State. A reserve in ’09, tallied 22-1-0 in 13 games. Started all 14 games in ’10 and produced 50-14 1⁄2-8 with three batted passes. Led the WAC in tackles for loss and sacks in ’11 after recording 66-18 1⁄2-10 with six passes batted down in 13 starts at defensive tackle. Team captain.

Positives:

Good instincts and recognition. Tough, physical and hardworking with a motor that does not quit. Has a blue-collar, bulldog mentality and will elevate the play of his teammates. Outstanding inside production — can create some mismatches with his initial quickness and gives excellent pursuit effort flattening down the line and stringing plays out. Chases like a linebacker and smells blood closing. Flashes the ability to stack and shed. Versatile and has played multiple positions. Exceptional character. Smart, competitive and mentally tough. Emotional leader. Holds teammates accountable.

Negatives:

Has a nearly maxed-out frame. Limited athletically and has a laboring movement style. Ultra-stiff. Plays too upright with average knee bend, explosion and power. Struggles to handle double teams on the inside and lacks the foot quickness, agility and burst desired on the outside.

Summary:

More strong than explosive, Roy is a classic tweener who lacks ideal size for the inside and projects best as an edge-setting 4-3 base end or 3-4 outside linebacker in the pros. Might not look pretty and often could be a step late to arrive but will make his presence continually felt behind the line and in the locker room. A wardaddy who will find a way and would fit well with a physical, hard-nosed defense such as the Ravens, Texans or Jets or could add grit to an undisciplined romper room.
