Prospect Profile: Courtney Roby
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 189 40: 4.39 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who led the team in receiving as a senior, posting 55/810/7. Honorable mention All-Conference choice last year.
Positives: Athletic and reliable pass catcher with solid size/speed numbers. Natural receiver who can adjust and reach back to make the reception in stride. Possesses good eye/hand coordination, timing, and looks the pass in. Gets vertical to make the acrobatic grab. Consistently finds the open space on the field. Keeps the play in bounds and works to pick up positive yardage after the reception.
Negatives: Not a sharp route runner and slows into breaks. Though a sprint champion with outstanding stop-watch speed, does not run to daylight.
Analysis: A reliable receiver who consistently makes the tough catch, Roby must learn to transfer his speed and athletic skills onto the football field consistently. Played well during Senior Bowl week making many believe the poor talent he played with in college hampered his development.
