Everybody knows that the Tennessee Titans are looking to fill holes in their wide receiver room after their losses in the off-season. The best time to scout young talent and give them a chance is during the pre-season and they’re doing just that.
It has been confirmed that the former Dallas Cowboys undrafted free agent is scheduled to work out for Tennessee on Friday, August 26th.
Here’s everything to know about Roberson heading into his workout.
The former Wake Forrest wide receiver was ranked 28th at his position on NFL Draft Buzz, and he just missed the cut to be called a priority free agent by Dane Brugler.
Why would the Tennessee Titans kick the tires on Roberson?
The physical tools are there for Roberson who measured in at 6’1″ and who ran a 4.46 40-yard dash on his Pro Day.
He was a two-year starter at Wake Forest and played all four seasons there even though he did end up redshirting his freshman year.
In his first 2 seasons, he only played 7 games and a total of 13 receptions for 154 yards and one touchdown.
Once he got the nod to start in his 3rd season, he was the slot receiver and he impressed with 62 receptions in 9 games totaling 926 yards and 8 touchdowns. He was was second in the ACC in touchdowns and third in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.
He followed that season up with an impressive 2021 season where he played in 13 games and tallied 71 receptions, 1078 yards, and 8 touchdowns.
Roberson didn’t play in Wake Forest’s TaxSlayer Gator Bowl to nurse a knee injury that would require surgery while getting prepared for the draft.
He was signed on April 30th by the Cowboys who later released him on August 23rd after the second wave of cuts.
This may be a name to file away for later in case there is an injury at some point in the season, but Roberson is an intriguing player. It would be almost impossible for him to earn a spot on the Tennessee Titans’ 53-man roster, but he makes sense as a stash player on the practice squad.
In fact, given the success of Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, it is easy to see why the Tennessee Titans would be an ideal landing spot for UDFA receivers looking to make their way to the NFL through the practice squad.
