Strengths Weaknesses

Strengths

An instinctive, physical player with the build and temperment required at the position. Good key and diagnosis skills, especially considering his limited time at the position. Fills lanes quickly and provides a pop on contact. Good short area burst and very good hustle in lateral pursuit. Takes on blocks aggressively and has an arm-over swim move to slip past. Experienced, high effort special teams performer. Enjoyed a solid week of practice at the East-West Shrine Game and intercepted a pass in the game, itself. Hard worker.

Weaknesses

A try-hard defender who may simply lack the speed and agility necessary at the next level. Relies on his instincts to beat backs to the edge and isn't capable of doing it when he takes a false-step. Struggles in pass coverage. Often takes a false-step toward the line of scrimmage and has just average fluidity and recovery speed.

Player Overview

Chris Ault's Nevada Wolf Pack is perhaps best known for his development of Pistol offense and star quarterback Colin Kaepernick but his staff has churned out several intriguing defenders over the past few seasons, as well, including three drafted a year ago (linebackers James Michael-Johnson and Brandon Marshall and defensive back Isaiah Frey).

It wasn't this year's most highly regarded defender, safety Duke Williams, nor All-American junior running back Stefphon Jefferson (also a 2013 prospect) who earned MVP honors for Ault's squad in 2012, however. That honor was given to Rosette, who led the team with 135 tackles, including four tackles for loss a season after starting 12 games at defensive end.

Rosette signed with Nevada as a linebacker and spent his first two seasons as a backup and special teams standout. With a talented linebacking corps already in place, the team elected to move Rosette to defensive end in 2011. While certainly undersized in this role, Rosette registered 33 stops, including 4.5 tackles for loss and two sacks. With Nevada losing Michael-Johnson and Marshall to the NFL, however, he was given the opportunity to move back to his more natural position as a senior and flourished.

Physical and instinctive, Rosette has a chance to make a roster if he can prove to teams that he has the athleticism to handle NFL speed.

12/15/2012 - SCOUTING THE RUN DEFENSE: The rushing defensive statistics don't look too kind to Nevada, although a lot of the damage was done in the Air Force game in which Nevada allowed 461 rushing yards. The Wolf Pack have been average at best against the run. The team has given up 213 yards per game and 5.1 yards per carry. Linebacker Albert Rosette, who has 128 tackles this season, is the Wolf Pack's top run stopper. Hard-hitting strong safety Duke Williams, who has 100 tackles, also is an excellent run stopper.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "A couple of plays here or there, we could have had a couple more wins or a couple more losses. It could have gone either way. This group, we might not play great football all the time, but these guys don't quit. It's a good group of guys. Every game we've played has been a four-quarter game and we came up just short in this one." Wolf Pack linebacker Albert Rosette, after Nevada's 27-21 loss to Boise State. - The Sports Xchange
