I've read he has 4.3 speed.
I've seen Roth play three or four times........I've seen Mathias Kiwanuka play twice.
I must admit that I've been more impressed with Roth. It seems that he was in the backfield constantly. I know people will harp on his supposed lack of athletic ability......but he was an all-state wrestler in Iowa (where wrestling is HUGE). He showed really good burst I thought. In the game vs Michigan, he was creating havoc quite often.
In the two games I've seen BC play, Kiwi has been invisible. The announcers spoke highly of him, but I never really saw him make plays. Now, maybe the talent on the BC defense had something to do with it. I don't know. Right now, his measurables are impressive. But I think he's more flash than substance. If he can get the athletic ability to translate to the football field, then he'll be a terror.
I really want to see him in a bowl game.
I would definitely like to see Roth on our team. I wouldn't be upset if we drafted him.
