Terrell Roberts

CB | (5-9, 203, 4.72) | Oregon State
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Lettered as an 18-year-old free safety in 1999 and as a strong safety in 2000. Moved to cornerback and started all but one game in '01. Had 10 tackles in '99, when most of his action came on special teams, and 20 tackles in '00. Registered 32 tackles, 11 passes defensed and three interceptions in '0l. Second corner to the more-heralded Dennis Weathersby, and Weathersby would often cover the opposition's best receiver. Started all 13 games in '02, recording 54 tackles, including two for loss, 11 passes broken up and two interceptions. Returned 18 punts for 174 yards and nine kickoffs for 205 yards.

Positives: Tough, likes to hit and play the run. Explodes on receivers. Can return punts, very strong, good athletic ability, has a burst and can cover. Physical corner who is a better run-support player and tackler than Weathersby.

Negatives: Inconsistent, lacks top-end speed. Does not turn and run deep. Questionable character, resists authority and is tough to coach. Short and stocky. Seems to have lapses in focus and technique.

Summary: May be best suited for cover-2 scheme. Return ability may make him worth drafting, although he is shorter and slower than scouts would like and lacks character.
