05/08/2014 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 89/12. *Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida, 6-0, 191, 4.61, 3...Physical in coverage, aggressive in pursuit and plays with attitude. Like Florida State's Lamarcus Joyner (sixth-rated CB by NFLDraftScout.com), Roberson is a product of prep powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas (15-0 his senior year). Injuries a concern (fractured C6 vertebrae in 2011; hurt knee in 2013) and he could use more bulk on lanky frame. Frankly: Roberson can play in the NFL if he learns to work in space without losing track of the action and he must also refine his hands-on work downfield to avoid penalties. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
