6-4, 300 • Sophomore • Defensive line
Casey Rogers has looked game ready for some time now. But with the stack of talent in front of him, he didn’t have a lot of chances to prove it.
This year he will, with a revamped defensive line replacing the Davis twins and Darrion Daniels.
Rogers appeared in four games last year but did not record a tackle. Tony Tuioti will have to find the right spot for Rogers, who will likely be part of the second wave of linemen during NU's hockey-style substitution patterns.
