    Tennessee Tech wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers ran the 40-yard dash in a somewhat lackluster 4.52 seconds on Sunday at the NFL Combine, but did especially well overall.

    Rogers, who began his college career at Tennessee, ranked as the top performer in his group in the vertical jump and broad jump, and showed excellent footwork in other drills.

    NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock was impressed.

    “He‟s a gifted guy,’’ Mayock said. “I don’t think he ran as fast as he had hoped to today. You put his tape on against Oregon (from Tennessee Tech), and you go, ‘Wow.’ He caught four or five balls early against a team way better than them and they double-teamed him the rest of the way.

    “He has some drops on tape, but he’s a gifted kid. The more important thing is how do you figure the kid out? He’s had some significant off the field question marks and that’s going to hurt his value.”

    Take him in the 3rd-4th if he's there.

    We need a CB/SS/ or RB at that spot

    We have a 2nd, two 3rds, and a 4th... That's 4 different picks we can use to fill those needs.

    We still need help at WR, and taking one in the 3rd/4th makes the most sense... especially one as talented as Rogers. And it appears he has truly changed.

    Him failing all the drug test does not help, but at least he did admit to it. I did not think he worked out as well as I thought he would. Great athlete with off the field issues and not the best hands in the world, and he struggles running routes. However he is very good after the catch.

    I don't think he's failed a test since Tennessee and he is a bit of a raw athlete but he's a game changer if he develops properly.

    He failed three drug tests at UT and was dismissed.

    He obviously realized he needed to make a change and did because he passed every test at TTU.

    Worth the risk... he likely will smoke pot again once he's making the big bucks in the NFL. Just gotta hope he doesn't get caught.
