As you can tell from Rock’s commitment post, I’m not especially high on Rock. He’s essentially a wild card, because I think he has pretty poor technique. There are things on virtually every play I’ve seen that concern me (mostly playing too high). But he’s 6’5″, probably weighs more than 250 now, and can run a little bit. Some of the physical attributes are there, but he’s not a high-caliber natural athlete. If he wants to be good, he’s going to have to work – hard.
Rock is probably a little weak to play this season, and he’s not enough of an athlete to help much on coverage units. He should find a niche eventually as a strongside end or even a 3-tech defensive tackle if he puts on enough weight, but that might be a few years down the road.
