Roper: Physical/ Competitive/ Professional (on and off the field).

Q: How are you going to train/prepare this offseason in preparation for the draft or other pro opportunities?

Roper: I’ve been training since the season was over by going to Frisco, TX and training at EXOS. It’s one of the best training companies in the business.

Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?

Roper: If I could compare myself to a current player, it would be Sean Lee of the Dallas Cowboys. I feel that we have the same type of mentality, always the first one to the ball. A technician on and off the field with our skills. Always trying to out work everyone to perfect our craft as LB.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?

Roper: When I’m watching film, I look for other teams tendencies and weaknesses so I can exploit them on the field.

Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

Roper: My final sell to a professional team would be that you’re not just getting a guy that will be there week one. You’re getting a guy that will be playing his heart out after week 17 through pain and injury no matter what it takes.
