He also notched 19 tackles for loss, six sacks and one interception. According to his NFL.com draft profile, Roberts is a leader on the field who makes most of his tackles near the line of scrimmage. However, the site notes he struggles to cover in space and has poor ball skills.BOTTOM LINEHis head coach calls Roberts one of the best leaders he’s ever been around and raves about his work ethic and passion for the game. Despite his athletic limitations, Roberts posted outstanding tackle production and was a commanding presence in the box, but his lack of speed and athletic ability create a paper thin margin for error in the NFL that could be tough for Roberts to overcome.The Cardinals are currently slated to have six picks in this year’s draft. They own the 29th overall selection in the first round, along with a third-round pick, one fourth-round choice, two fifth-round picks and one in the sixth. The Arizona Cardinals will take a closer look at one of this draft’s linebackers.
