  • Lacks straight line speed

Overall 

Royce has the chance to be a great change of pace back at the next level. He has great size and speed to move the chains consistently. He is a bigger guy so some teams may look to get him early goal line work. He should be a 3rd or 4th round pick and could be a great value for any team who drafts him. He will be an interesting player to watch going forward.
