Davion Rogers: 2010 Michigan Wolverine -- Defensive End -- Signing Day Recap

Posted at 4:00pm -- 2/26/2010

Davion Rogers: 2010 Michigan Wolverine

Height: 6'6
Weight: 210 lbs.
Position: Defensive End / Outside Linebacker
High School: Warren G. Harding (Ohio)
Head Coach: D.J. Dota
Recruiter: Coach Bruce Tall
Class: 2010 Michigan Wolverine Recruiting Class (Signed)

Davion Rogers is a tall rangy defensive end/outside linebacker prospect. He was a good enough overall athlete to actually play some safety in high school. Davion moves his feet well for being a taller player.

Davion is a hustle player and makes a lot of plays in pursuit. He shows very good range and has a solid get off. Davion shows a nice little rip move that he uses to maintain outside leverage. He has good lateral movement skills and range. Davion is a solid tackler, but not overly physical.

Needs work:
Davion’s size and strength are definitely issues. He also tends to get too deep and turn his shoulders. Davion, like many tall players, plays high and needs to do a better job of squeezing plays.

Davion reminds GBMW of this former Michigan Wolverine:
Pierre Woods.

Red-shirt or play his freshman year:
Very likely a red-shirt.

Where do they rank him:
ESPN: 3-Star .. #29 at position.
Rivals: 3-Star .. #28 at position.
Scout: 3-Star .. #102 at position.

Final Thoughts:
Davion has the height to play defensive end or outside linebacker, depending on what defense Michigan uses. He has a lot of athletic ability with his size, a solid get off from the line and shows a good pursuit of the ball carrier. Can he learn to play in space as an outside linebacker, or can he add the necessary weight and strength to become a good pass rushing defensive end?
