“Rochell is strong enough to set the edge in the run game and occupy multiple blockers.” —Todd McShay
Excels against the run- among the best defensive ends as a run defender. In the NFL, in the right scheme, could find himself as a left defensive end that can move inside on passing downs, increasing his value despite marginal pass rush skills. Also very well suite to play left defensive end in a 3-4. Extremely strong at holding up blocks and controlling the gaps, shutting down the run game coming his way.
