Player Overview

Rose led the team in 2014 with 15.0 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles, adding five sacks and 47 total tackles.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He plays with a relentless motor to make plays all over the field, using his chase skills to make stops most defensive linemen aren't interested in making. Uses his forceful hands and upper-body strength to bully anyone who gets in his way.

His best trait might be his backfield vision to keep his eyes glued on the ball to mirror at the line of scrimmage. Rose has terrific football instincts to identify play design and sniff out screens, quickly recognizing what the offense wants to do.

WEAKNESSES: Rose lacks ideal height and length and doesn't have the dynamic lateral agility to deceive blockers off the edge.

IN OUR VIEW: He isn't a slam dunk draft pick and won't test overly well, but Rose does enough to make you take notice on tape.
