Summary: A versatile defensive lineman, who primarily operates from nose tackle alignments. His quick initial step grants him positional leverage, complemented by lateral agility and active footwork. Roach’s effectiveness in run defense is fueled by his forceful hands and footwork, enabling him to violently stack and shed blockers. He consistently demonstrates a knack for being around of the ball, establishing himself as a tremendous force against the run. Roach is one of the best run defenders you have never heard of and my #1 target for the Bills at DT aside from a DaQuan Jones  re-signing.-Turner

Signature Skill/Trait: Nose for the ball
