Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Explosive athlete, as he bursts off the line and accelerates down the field to threaten over the top. Changes direction well on quick-cut routes where he can plant and burst, like slants and outs. He does not have game-breaking speed by any means, as he runs high and looks stiff. He takes extra steps when changing direction and is overmatched by physical defenders due to his lack of contact balance.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Has a quick burst off the line, utilizing jabs and hand swipes to effectively release off the line. Uses acceleration to threaten deep which allows him to snap routes back underneath. He does a good job stacking defenders and finding spots in the soft zone. He is a natural pass catcher with the arm length to extend and have a big catch radius. He tracks the ball well and has the acceleration to get over the top. He is very effective after the catch, where he feels defenders on his backside and bursts up the field. He runs hard and has some wiggle. ... Must continue to develop creative releases and gain upper body strength to avoid being overmatched by physical corners. He ran a pretty limited route tree and often takes extra steps at the top of his routes, not bursting out of his cuts back to the ball. He has a hard time separating against longer corners and is inconsistent in bringing down contested catches or catches through contact. He offers very little special teams impact and barely did it in his last two years of college

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Roberson had an immediate impact when he first arrived at college as a Freshman at West Virginia. In 2018, he transferred to SMU and had a very productive season, as a receiver and kick returner. He had a similar 2019 season before getting injured, missing the final few games. Poised for a breakout in 2020, he missed almost the entire season after tearing his ACL. He returned healthy this season and was productive. He is a quick burst receiver with acceleration to threaten deep and after the catch. He is not very strong and lacks the versatility to be used in different ways. He must develop his route tree to be a more consistent player at the next level. He projects best as a developmental outside receiver.
