Brian Rolle
Junior OLB
Ohio State
5-11 220


The kid is a really good player, gets to the ball as quick as any and reacts really well in pass coverage. Sure he is a small linebacker but he has come out of nowhere and is a flat out star at times on the field. Reminds me a lot of Clint Sessions on the Colts or a faster London Fletcher.

Had a great game against Michigan and with another year under his belt at Ohio State he could easily be a first day selection. It has to be noted that his front four really helps keep him clean and keep blocks off of him. However Rolle regardless is stout at the point of attack, can get around blocks and make plays with his speed.

First day selection now means first round pick, which Rolle is not. I don't doubt that a team could take a flier on him in the Mid-Late 2nd next year, but I see the 3rd Round as the more likely landing place. Agreed, a very good player. If he were two inches taller and ten pounds heavier we may be talking about a Mid-Late first round pick.

He's actually their MLB, but he's probably a WLB at the next level. He's very good. Fast, instinctive, aggressive. He tackles well and just seems to have a nose for the ball. One of my favorite non-UM players to watch in the Big 10.

I do not see how first day means first round.

The first day of the draft is only 1 round.

I thought they were still thinking that over, when did they make that offical. Did they also then move it to Thursday.

No worries, it's new and it's very hard not to use the phrase "First Day pick" when evaluating 2nd-3rd Round prospects.

He impressed the hell out of me against Michigan. 5'11 LB's always have question marks. But if someone overlooks his height, they will get a good player.
