Mock Draft Expert Analysis

  • Philadelphia Eagles | #22
    Chip Kelly is, of course, most known for offense but during his tenure at Oregon, his Ducks featured terrific cornerback play, as well. The Eagles took a significant step in improving upon their 30th ranked pass defense by landing former New Orleans Saints' safety Malcolm Jenkins but more help is needed. Roby struggles a bit with consistency but the tools are there to warrant top 20 consideration.
  • Philadelphia Eagles | #22
    Chip Kelly, who watched Roby in person at Ohio State's pro day last week, wants to get faster and tougher on defense and the former Buckeyes' cornerback will help accomplish that with his natural speed and aggressive mentality.
  • Cincinnati Bengals | #24
    He is a cocky, athletic kid who would fit what they need in an aging corner group.
  • Denver Broncos | #31
    I just got done watching enough game tapes on Roby to feel good about him late in the first round for the first time in my mock draft. He is an aggressive off coverage player that can close on a receiver. He likes contact and would help right away in Denver.
 

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Roby has world-class speed with the click-and-close ability to play tight coverage and mirror receivers all over the field. 4.39-second 40-yard speed and a good fighting attitude to battle for the ball.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks preferred size for the position. Can be late looking for the ball. Tendency to concede underneath throws, although some might have been scheme-based in college. Must prove he can drive on the ball and limit plays in front of him.

Player Overview

After sitting out the season opener due to a suspension, the Buckeyes junior showed some rust early in 2013 and struggled mightily against Wisconsin wide receiver Jared Abbrederis, but there is a lot to love about Roby's game. That includes his speed and fighting attitude, but he needs to stay alert for all four quarters to convince NFL teams he's worthy of a high first-round grade.

02/20/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 44. *Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State, 5-11, 192, 4.39, 2...After redshirting the 2010 season as a true freshman, Roby started all 13 games at cornerback in 2011 and quickly flashed his world class speed while leading team with three interceptions. He sat out 2013 opener (suspension after arrest for battery in bar fight) and shook off a so-so start to register a good season. Had more than his share of bothersome injuries the last two years. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
