Interesting Facts

5 of 6

    According to ESPN.com's Brian Bennett, Roh was on a diet of 5,000 calories per day before the 2012 season in an effort to gain weight to play strong-side defensive end. 

    He was the high school teammate of Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan.

Observations

6 of 6

    Roh is a deceptive athlete with a high motor who needs to build strength to play on an NFL defensive line. The fact that he gained weight and was still productive at Michigan is encouraging. 

    He projects to be a 4-3 defensive end at the next level.
