Jaquelin Roy 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report


  • Three-year contributor  
  • 2021 season stats: 30 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble


  • Scheme tendencies: 4-3 scheme  
  • 2022 projected role: Will be best suited as a gap-penetrating 3-tech 

Pros: Jaquelin Roy is an interior defensive lineman that has a quick first step that he uses to his advantage in both the run game and when rushing the passer. In the run game, Roy uses his quickness to quickly shoot gaps and create backfield penetration. In the backfield, Roy has the lateral agility to pursue ball carriers and create backfield disruption. As a pass rusher, Roy uses this same quickness to quickly get upfield and attack the edges of offensive linemen. Roy is most comfortable attacking the edges of offensive linemen where he can activate his hands to beat them.

Cons: Jaquelin Roy’s biggest deficiencies show in the run game. As a run defender, Roy doesn’t appear to play with great gap integrity. Roy will get moved off the line of scrimmage and have to fight to disengage with offensive linemen or he will attempt to spin out of the blocks, which results in him leaving his gap. Also, in his pass rush, Roy needs to become more intentional in his pass-rush moves and beating the man in front of him. A lot of Roy’s penetration comes from him floating around the line of scrimmage and waiting for a hole to appear. Roy has the athleticism and overall quickness to become a complete defensive lineman, but he needs to improve the details of his game.
