Malcolm Roach named to Pro Football Focus Freshman All-American team

Posted December 19th, 2016


Pro Football Focus has named Texas defensive Malcolm Roach to its 2016 Freshman All-American team. 

Roach joins Ohio State’s Nick Bosa as the best “edge defenders” or as your father would call them: defensive ends. Here’s what the site says about Roach:

Roach led freshmen edge defenders with an 83.8 run-defense grade while tying for second with Bosa with 20 total stops. He saw an uptick in playing time in Week 5 and finished with 472 total snaps to rank fourth among freshmen edge defenders.
