Draft Zone Spotlight: Dyrell Roberts, WR, Virginia Tech
Dyrell Roberts is one of the most prolific players for the Hokies. In 2012, Dyrell played in all 13 games, making 10 starts. He totaled 596 plays on the year, including 589 on offense and seven on special teams. Dyrell has had several huge moments in his career, whether it was the huge catch from Tyrod Taylor in the back of the endzone with seconds remaining or the 98 yard kick return against #1 ranked Alabama. Roberts is a play maker, and i am not sure there is a team in the NFL that doesn’t need one.

Has it always been your dream to be an NFL football player?
