Buffalo Bills Player Profile: Da’Rick Rogers


Adding another WR to the mix for the Buffalo Bills, Da’Rick Rogers is one that will provide the Bills strength and power at the wide receiver position.  As an undrafted free agent, this was a steal for the Buffalo Bills as there were 14 other teams that were interested in Rogers, but yet He still chose to come to Buffalo.

Rogers stands 6’2″ and weighs 217 lbs.  He has had some issues off the field with a disorderly conduct charge as well as a resisting arrest charge before his true freshman year.  He was still on the field that year bringing in 16 rushing attempts for 1167 yards, 12 kickoff returns for 298 yards and 11 receptions for 167 yards.

In his Sophomore year he was able to break the 1,000 yard mark and bring in 9 TDs on 67 receptions.  Rogers was dismissed before the 2012 season because of “internal issues” that he tweeted about.  This showed a level of immaturity as well.  Instead of missing a year, Rogers transferred to Tennessee Tech and was able to rack up 1,207 yards on 78 receptions and 11 TDs.

The NFL compares him to Greg Little.

This is the breakdown of the NFL on Da’Rick Rogers…

Rogers is a physical specimen with strong hands who overpowered defenders in his routes and after the catch on his way to second-team All-SEC status in 2011 (67 catches, 1,040 yards, nine TDs), and to a dominating season (78 catches for 1,207 yards and 11 TDs) while at Tennessee Tech. His immaturity off the field caused him to be dismissed from Tennessee before the 2012 season, and thus the biggest questions with Rogers will be about character concerns. While he’s not a quick-twitch, vertical threat, Rogers is a big, physical receiver who works well across the middle, and has a tremendous deal of talent.
