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

12/04/2012 - 2012 ALL-BIG TEN SECOND TEAM (COACHES): DL Craig Roh, Michigan, has been selected Second Team All-Big Ten (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season. Roh tallied 36 tackles, 5.5 TFLs and 4.0 sacks during his senior campaign. He made his 50th consecutive start against Ohio State, tying former U-M offensive lineman Jon Jansen's school record for all-time starts. - Michigan football

12/04/2012 - 2012 ALL-BIG TEN HONORABLE MENTION (MEDIA): Craig Roh, Michigan, has been selected Honorable Mention All-Big Ten (Media selection) for the 2012 college football season.

He made his 50th consecutive start against Ohio State, tying former U-M offensive lineman Jon Jansen's school record for all-time starts. - Michigan football

09/01/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: After the major leap this group made in the 2011 season, optimism abounds. The Wolverines went from one of the worst defensive units in the nation in 2010 (35.2 ppg. allowed) to one of the best last season (17.4 ppg. allowed). Coordinator Greg Mattison is comfortable with anchoring DE Craig Roh and DT Will Campbell up front. DE Frank Clark is still in limbo after getting charged with swiping a laptop from a dorm room earlier this year. LB Jake Ryan has great instincts and is as sure a tackler as the Wolverines have. The secondary is experienced and strong, led by SS Jordan Kovacs, a former walk-on who is now a Michigan captain as a senior. CB Blake Countess could be primed for an all-league type of year and is likely the team's best at man-to-man coverage. - The Sports Xchange

09/01/2012 - Five I'll Be Watching This Weekend: DE Craig Roh, Michigan: The biggest game of opening weekend presents the most intriguing individual matchup for my money with the Wolverines' talented Roh against Alabama, the most gifted offensive line in college football. Roh, a former linebacker who has bulked up to become one of the more physical defensive ends in the country, is expected to line up often against the Tide's equally powerful right tackle D.J. Fluker, who I currently rate as the No. 23 prospect in the country. A season ago Roh (pronounced Row) lined up all along the defensive line for the Wolverines as the team sought out favorable matchups. There are few weaknesses on this Alabama offensive line, however. Roh registered 32 tackles, including eight tackles for loss and four sacks a season ago, earning Honorable Mention all-conference honors. Those close to the program believe he'll significantly improve upon those numbers in a breakout senior campaign. Roh, who started eight games at outside linebacker in 2010, should improve as the season goes on. Until invited to prominent senior all-star game, he won't face a stiffer test (and thus greater opportunity to impress scouts) than Saturday night's primetime tilt against the defending champs. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/03/2012 - Top-five Michigan prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 2. DE Craig Roh...Last season in 13 starts at weakside end, he set new career-bests with 8.0 tackles for loss and 4.0 sacks. Roh is a fierce competitor and workout warrior, adding and shedding weight to do whatever the coaching staff has asked, always playing at full speed and creating little doubt about his passion for the game. He has good quickness for his size and looks comfortable in space, but will overpursue at times and needs to consistently play under control. Roh is strong at the point of attack, taking on blocks well and disposing of linemen with his raw power, which will make him a natural fit on the strongside in more of a five-technique role. For as quick and physical as he is, Roh wins a lot of plays because of his ability between the ears, showing natural instincts and a love for watching film. Although he probably won't be super productive as a senior, Roh shouldn't be overlooked in a potentially special class of pass rushers next April. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

08/03/2012 - Top-five Michigan prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 2. DE Craig Roh...One of the more underrated prospects in the nation, Roh (pronounced "row") has bounced between positions and roles during his tenure in Ann Arbor, but he appears to have finally found a home at strongside defensive end. After adding weight to move from linebacker to defensive end last year, he has put on an additional 10-15 pounds to move over to the strongside in 2012. An Arizona native and high school teammate of Lewan, Roh was a top-10 defensive end recruit out of high school and passed up offers by Arizona State and USC to move east and join Rich Rodriguez's Wolverines. He earned All-Freshman honors in 2009 after starting all 12 games at outside linebacker, recording 35 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks and one interception. Roh bounced between linebacker and defensive end in Rodriguez's 3-3-5 defense as a sophomore before moving to defensive end full-time as a junior under new head coach Brady Hoke and defensive coordinator Greg Mattison. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
