He looks like the second best Safety prospect if Mays isn't there at 15. Do you know if he's entering the draft?

it mays or nothing for me... it seems outside of him, the safety prospects are really weak & we can't afford to waste 1st day picks on guys who probably wont be ready to start & make an impact immediately.

I think Rolle is a senior and is likely to be there in the second round. Fits into the category of a smart football player that Kubiak because he is a Rhodes Scholar.

Actually Rolle is a junior and a smart guy at that. He is a Rhodes Scholar and may be pursuing that next year. The guy, IMO, would instantly upgrade our defense. Here is some stuff from Wikipedia about him:

Rolle graduated from Florida State University after only 2.5 years, majoring in Exercise Sciences with a concentration in Pre-Med, and is currently completing a Master of Public Administration degree.[3][4][5] In 2008, he earned Associated Press 3rd team All-American honors as well as Football Writers Association America 2nd team All-ACC and CoSIDA Academic All-America. In the 2008 season game versus the University of Miami Hurricanes, Seminoles Defensive Coordinator Mickey Andrews remarked that Rolle played the best and most complete game he has ever seen a safety play at Florida State University in his 25 years of coaching. Rolle had 4 tackles (2 touchdown saving tackles), 1 tackle for loss, 4 pass breakups, 1 sack, 2 quarterback hurries and 3 critical 3rd down stops. Rolle was named a finalist for one of the 32 Rhodes Scholarships awarded to Americans each year.[6] His interview for the Scholarship was originally scheduled at the same time as Florida State was to play at Maryland; the NCAA decided to allow Rolle to take a chartered plane from his interview in Birmingham, Alabama to College Park.[4] He was awarded the scholarship less than three hours before the Florida State vs. Maryland game. He became the fourth Florida State student and second school athlete to receive the honor, as well as the only FSU football player to do so.[7][8]

Rolle has yet to announce his intentions as to whether he will forgo his senior season of eligibility and the NFL, where he is likely a 1st round selection, to study at Oxford, where he intends to study medical anthropology.[3] He is also a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. at FSU.[9]

All I can say is if he comes out, we should draft him. It's possible due to his lack of interceptions in college that he might slip to the 2nd or 3rd round. Personally, I would snatch him if he is there in the 2nd. He is used more like a LB at FSU so that likely contributes to his lack of INTs.
