2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Tyler Roehl, FB, North Dakota State

Roehl has been a three year contributor for North Dakota State. In 2004, he rushed only two times for just 14 yards. He did not play in 2005 due to injury, then came back in 2006 with eight rushes for 14 yards and one TD. It was the 2007 campaign that saw Roehl gaining 1,431 yards on 2007 carriers and scoring 21 TD. He also caught 20 balls for 180 yards and had an impressive 6.7 average per rushing attempt. A big and physical player, Roehl is fast for his size (4.55). He is a mauler who uses his brute force to drive defenders, moving well between the tackles. An outside runner, he has a great set of hands for a fullback. Although he lost a season due to injury, he is not prone to break down. His route running needs more work, he lacks blocking technique, and he does not bend his knees well. Roehl is not overly athletic and he definitely needs more coaching. Roehl is a big and strong fullback who is more prepared to contribute almost immediately than many others FB. He lacks instincts and is far from a finished product, nevertheless he has the raw power and desire to workout his shortcomings (which will make him attractive to many teams). He is projected to go late on Day Two.
