2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about Richard Rodgers: California, 6040 257 4.87. Started 11 games over his career and played in 35 out of 37 games. Was a tight end in the new Cal “Bear Raid” offense where his role was limited because of the four wide receiver sets. He transitioned to a slot pass catcher but was most effective on the line of scrimmage. Body caught the ball in traffic and demonstrated good ball security. Can catch the ball in his hands when beating wide open zone coverage. Good concentration. Screen and position type blocker. Not asked to inline block often. He needs work on his base and strength to neutralize a defensive end. 2013 stats: 39-608, 15.6 ypr, 1 TD. OSR:16/18. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 5/8, H-10 1/8, BP-16, VJ-31.5).
