From defensive leader to Super Bowl champion and back again
Regardless of what the result may be this time, Roberts has become a figurehead for Houston players with dreams of joining the highest level of the sport. In one year, his entire career changed.
Former teammate Tyus Bowser has already followed in his footsteps, going from unknown draft prospect to second round pick by the Baltimore Ravens. Sports writers are already predicting senior D’Juan Hines will be the next Cougar linebacker to go to the NFL. Any number could follow.
Even though Roberts may never have the flash of a Case Keenum, he is arguably the hardest worker to ever come out of Houston. Given his current status in the NFL, he might easily become the most successful.
