Rodgers is an athletic player who has moved around the offensive line throughout his career at both WSU and EWU. He shows great hands that are connected to his feet when he moves. Possesses adequate power when engaged with the athletic ability to get to the second level, and displays a nastiness when run blocking.


Played offensive tackle at EWU during an All-American season, but projects as a guard at the next level. His movements are stiff versus quick edge rushers. He gets off balancing by lunging when blocking outside. He needs to play with leverage more consistently rather than trying to overpower each player naturally.


Rodgers is an athletic player with good feet who excelled at the FCS level after competing at a young age at the FBS level. He was a tight end and all-state post player in high school, which translated to the football field with his smooth footwork. He needs to increase his strength, but has the ability and size to move inside and add depth to an offensive line, and possibly work into a starting role down the line.
