Roby has gone on the record saying he would like to play for the Chargers.
“It’s time for them to get a great corner,” Roby said. “I would love to play for you guys and have a great career.”
Roby had 179 tackles, 7.5 for loss, one sack and eight interceptions in his Ohio State Buckeyes’ career.
NFL.com’s draft profile of Roby describes him as an “urgent, confident, competitive athlete with an intriguing combination of speed, suddenness, ball skills and tackling ability.” They say he “has broad appeal given his scheme versatility, and should be able to contribute readily as nickel slot defender and special-teams contributor” and “has a ceiling as a No. 2.”
The Chargers have the 25th overall pick in the first round.
