Michael Roos   OT   Eastern Washington
Strengths

Michael has excellent size and strength for his position. He has good feet and very good lateral quickness. He likes to block both in the passing game and the run game. He shows leadership qualities and makes the players around him better. Michael looks to be very coachable and has improved in his run techniques from last year. Michael has the potential to be a hell of an OT at the next level.

 

Needs to Improve

He still has a lot to learn, like identifying and picking up stunts and getting stronger in his upper body.  Also, he needs to be more consistent when he fires out in the running game. Trust me, he will accomplish all of these things and more.

 

Talent Board Round  3

When I watch Michael play, he actually gets better from play to play. That is how quickly he learns. He has excellent mental toughness and I have no doubt that he will be on the field right away for the team that drafts him. I would start him on the right side so that he can learn the mental schemes with the protection of having a TE help him. But make no mistake…this kid will be a left tackle in a couple of years and a leader on the offensive line. He has a lot of Robert Gallery in his game physically, but is not as far along in the mental part as Robert was when he came out. He is also not as consistent. Michael is very close to being first round talent and I will not be surprised to see him taken ahead of a lot of O-linemen in this draft that have bigger names. Weak draft, my butt! Don’t fall for that garbage. It is just an excuse used by people who are too lazy to do their jobs.
