Player Overview

Rooks was named honorable mention All-Big 12 by the coaches and media as a senior, but did not earn an invitation to the Scouting Combine. He did work out at Kansas State's pro day, running a 5.20 40-yard dash and lifting the 225-pound bench press 21 times.

Rooks arrived at Kansas State in 2012 following two years at Navarro community college. He went on to play in all 13 games in '12, including 10 starts to earn honorable mention all-conference honors.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGHS: While not an elite athlete, Rooks is solid in most every aspect and shows agile feet. Good experience as a two-year starter following two years of extensive action in community college. Maintains leverage well, and keeps his feet moving.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks great strength, managing a modest 21 reps at 225-pound. May need to slide inside in the NFL; lacks quickness for left tackle and the upper-body strength to be a road-grader on the right side.
