Carolina Panthers -- DE Craig Roh, Michigan: A freshman starter four years ago in Ann Arbor, Roh showed flashes of big-time potential. But his career never took off, and a big reason for that is the way the coaching staff moved him all over the defense. He started at outside linebacker before moving to defensive end and tackle, lining up in both three- and four-man fronts. Roh has an active motor and never gives up on plays, but he struggles to maintain leverage and brings a limited repertoire of pass-rush moves. His production leaves a lot to be desired for a four-year starter (10.5 career sacks), but his energy and versatile experience will give him a chance to earn a roster spot.

Haven't hear to much on the guy. Glad to know we might have a sleeper on board that others think highly of. What say you?

I have heard 2 other undrafted DEs mentioned in artlcles, but not Roh.  I see a PS spot the best he can hope for.  Winning a DE job here would be tough--I question why his agent allowed a DE to sign with us as an undrafted free agent.  Maybe we were the only interested team.

F - Roh, F - UofM, I hope his dog is the only survivor of that house fire. Er, if his house catches fire, I hope the dog is the only one making it out.

The top DEs in the draft had like 4 sacks on the season. Ziggy had horrible numbers but is a top 10 pick. You don't really draft on production you draft them on ceiling. He could have a high one given the right environment

If you are a DE in college trying to play in the NFL, you better have more than 2.5 sacks a season!!!

The hate for UofM is total and real. F em'. This kid will not add anything to the team. And will probably get someone hurt while he flails around like a beached manatee with brain damage. I feel bad for his dog, poor thing didn't get to choose.

Actually, I don't know if he really has a dog. But if he does, I feel bad for the poor thing. If for some Zod forsaken reason he sticks around. I will temper my hatred towards him. However, the first time he trips over a blade of grass like some drunken Huddler, I will rail against him with all my might.

The #5 overal pick had a career total of 4.5 sacks in college. He was at BYU 3 years....didn't start all 3 but 4.5 is 4.5 career sacks.

Exactly. DEs more so then other positions get drafted off potential not production.

Pretty sure the article suggests he had low sack numbers because he played in several positions outside of DE. Its harder to get sacks from OLB and DT...

Exactly....Beason and Luke played OLB in college. They never got to the QB for sacks.

The kid is diverse with a motor...I'm sure if he played DE all 4 years he would have many more sacks
