Analysis: After having an absolutely stellar sophomore campaign, Rocker ran into some injury problems. Those problems hampered his junior and senior seasons.
That does not make him any less talented.
Rocker is a big back and runs even bigger. He has speed enough to bounce it outside and outrun defenders or take it in between the tackles.
It is upsetting that fans couldn’t see what he can bring the to table, fully, the last two years. However, I expect Rocker to overcome those obstacles and really showcase his talents in front of his hometown.
