Rogers caught 61 passes for 893 yards and 10 touchdowns in his lone season at Tennessee Tech. The 6-foot-3 junior caught 18 passes for 303 yards in a 41-38 double-overtime loss to Southeast Missouri State to set school single-game records in both categories.
Rogers had 67 catches for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns for Tennessee in 2011 to earn all-Southeastern Conference honors. He transferred to Tennessee Tech after being suspended indefinitely by Tennessee. Rogers said positive drug tests caused his suspension.
During a teleconference Wednesday, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said Rogers is a potential second- or third-round pick and that he had ``as much talent as any receiver in this draft.''
