The Breakdown

Romeus is a tremendous defensive end prospect. Possessing ideal size, strength and speed, he’s a true force off the edge. He has a combination of pass rush moves and can use power or finesse to get to the quarterback. Romeus has improved every season and he’s set to have a monster senior season and is set to be an early first round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
