  Draft Scout by Conference

  08/16/22 - DT *Jaquelin RoyJr/2023, LSU

  By most accounts out of preseason camp, Jaquelin Roy is poised for a breakout season in 2022. While he's made just one start in 22 career games, he's currently starting at nose tackle on a line that includes end Ali Gaye, big end Maason Smith and stand-up edge rusher BJ Ojulari, a preseason first-team All-Southeastern Conference pick. Despite playing for his third defensive line coach in three seasons, Roy feels more comfortable in a position that will have him playing mostly over the center instead of burly, squatty guards.

Roy added 15 pounds to his frame over the spring and summer to complete the move - which he was "sketchy" about initially, but couldn't be happier about now. "I don't know too many centers that are just going to block me one-on-one," he said. "When I was playing the three-technique (as a tackle), I struggled with taking the inside step before I got out vertically. "I'm in an even stance in the nose, so I can step right in and lift whatever the offensive lineman is doing. I can make a play fast. I can be a disturbance." Roy explained that in lining up over the center, he can use his quickness to cause the player to snap the ball over the quarterback's head, make a bad snap in general or even cause a false start. "That feels real good," he said. - Baton Rouge Advocate
