LOS ANGELES -- With Robert Woods and Marqise Lee solidifying themselves as the top wide receiver duo going into next season, USC commit Darreus Rogers will have the opportunity to learn from the best in the college game.

Strengths

At 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, Rogers is a physical presence when he lines up outside. He has a large frame and long arms which he uses to his advantage when going up against smaller corners. Rogers moves very well for a player his size and at times looks to run clean routes. On occasion, he looks to be effective with the "stop and go," which can be difficult for such a big receiver. But at the next level, Rogers most likely will make his plays going across the middle. With large hands and the ability to catch almost everything he touches, Rogers quickly can become a quarterback's best friend.
