Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Active with a good play motor, never giving up on plays. Quick off the snap to attack gaps, wasting little time in his movements. Aggressive in pursuit and arrives with a head of steam. Always pursuing the ball and works through the whistle. Good run awareness to hold the point and track the ball, always seeming to be in the area. Occupies multiple blockers and doesn't shy from contact. Used all over the defensive with experience at linebacker and defensive line, both inside and outside.

WEAKNESSES: Needs to stay light on his feet with only average range and natural burst. Gets too high out of his stance and loses leverage too easily, needing to work on his fundamentals. Too involved with hand fights off the snap and struggles to shed blocks. Limited repertoire of pass rush moves and doesn't do much after initially stopped. Gives up contain too much and tends to sell out for the rush. Bad habit of being jumpy at the line of scrimmage. Doesn't create enough pressure.

Player Overview

It has been quite the roller coaster ride for Roh the past four years as he lined up at several different positions while setting a new school-record with 51 consecutive starts. He started his career at outside linebacker and he flashed big-time potential as a freshman with 7.5 tackles for loss. Roh moved between defensive end and linebacker as a sophomore before moving to end full-time in 2011 as a junior. He switched to strongside end in 2012 as a senior, but also saw action inside, lining up as a three or zero technique tackle.

Roh finished his career with 26.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks over his career, but struggled to live up to the hype early in his career. While transitioning between numerous positions and working under various defenses coaches are the main culprits, Roh stayed positive and worked hard through the change and misuse. He rushes with top-shelf energy and intensity, but the production hasn't matched and he needs to prove he's more than simply a prospect who leaves scouts wanting more.

01/04/2013 - Michigan defensive tackle Will Campbell said in Florida that he had been invited to the East-West Shrine Game. It appears a linemate will offer some company. Defensive end Craig Roh also is listed on the West roster for the contest, which is slated for Jan. 19 in St. Petersburg, Fla. -- located just 25 minutes from Tampa, where the Wolverines concluded their season Tuesday with a 33-28 loss to South Carolina in the Outback Bowl. The East-West Shrine Game is a showcase for outgoing seniors with pro aspirations. Campbell and Roh both are considered fringe draft picks, but could improve their stock in St. Petersburg.

Roh started a record 51 games at Michigan, logging 148 tackles, 26.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks. He was named second-team all-Big Ten by the coaches this year, and honorable mention by the media. - Kyle Meinke, Michigan Live
