    That's some serious props from Joe Kines (Alabama Defensive coordinator).
    The rest of the article is very good,IMO. I've been curious about this guy since he was signed by the Pats. Has anyone here seen him play?

    i saw a couple of crimson tide games

    i don't remember him sticking out. i did notice that alabama seemed to have the usual complement of sideline-to-sideline LBs. florida's sweeps and screens were pretty much swallowed up by pursuit all night.
    but here's the situation. a major college player, leader type on the field, highly regarded by his coaches, kinda ferocious, lotta tackles. regarded as too small and too slow by the scouting gurus.
    smile.
    he'll certainly be worth watching in TC.

    As of now, Roach is the UDFA with the highest chance of making the squad (still slim). I think we've all agreed on that since Draft Day. After all, he was on many lists as an early Day Two pick. The issue will be his play, injuries, and whether he beats out Gardner, Alexander and the rest if someone goes to IR.
