OC | (6-2, 295, 5.23) | Miami (FL)
By Pro Football WeeklyNotes: Hails from Canada. Backup guard in seven games in 1998. Redshirted for developmental purposes in '99. Moved to center in the spring of 2000 and started every game since. Won All-Big East honors in '01 and won the Dave Rimington Award (top center) in '02. Was not responsible for any sacks in 2000 or '01. Three-year starter. Graduated before the start of his senior season and was enrolled in graduate school last fall.Positives: Is a smart player who battles and gets decent fits on the second level. Shows toughness and durability. Also can play offensive guard. Didn't allow a sack in his first three years at Miami. Really maximizes his talent and uses a wide base and hand fights. Gives great effort. Also is very smart and always seems to get position. Picks up stunts well. Takes good angles. Good leader.Negatives: Much more effective when uncovered and will need help when a big, powerful man plays over him. While his hand placement is good, Romberg lacks power and explosion in both his hand punch and lower body. Not a natural knee-bender and tends to bend at the waist. Struggles in space.Summary: Lacks great size but has a great feel for the center position and has enough athletic ability to be a solid NFL starter.* Player biographies are provided by Pro Football Weekly.
