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.
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:
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.
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?
