Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior with totals of 66 tackles/10 sacks/21 tackles for loss. Junior numbers included 50/8/16.
Positives: Undersized yet explosive defensive line prospect who consistently makes plays behind the line of scrimmage. Fires off the snap with a terrific first step, quickly gets his hands up and fights with them throughout the action. Resilient, stays on his feet and works hard to make plays. Plays with terrific pad level, quickly changes direction and shows the ability to drop off the line of line of scrimmage and play in space. Fast up the field, immediately alters his angle of attack and strings plays out to the sidelines.
Negatives: Easily controlled at the point of attack by a single blocker or knocked from his angle of attack. Struggles getting through the trash.
Analysis: Roy is a high-motor defender who gets the most from his ability, playing bigger and faster than his listed numbers. He's a situational defender at the next level who will make a roster based on his hustle rather than physical skills.
