With the 199th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft the Washington Redskins selected Wyoming center Roullier. Roullier, 6'4" and 312 pounds, was rated as the 10th center and 336th player overall.

Offensive lineman typically don’t get a ton of love from fans, but Roullier has been a stud on the line for the Wyoming Cowboys.

Pro Football Focus’ stats say that he’s given up a total of 14 pressures in two seasons. That ranks among the best offensive lineman in college football.

Roullier is a very technically sound player and doesn’t lose blocks. He’s built to anchor a line. Roullier is versatile as well, having played center and guard over the last two seasons.

He’s good at using his body and his hands to sustain blocks, while generating power and momentum that he uses to his advantage.
