Draft Scout Robbie Rouse News
03/29/13 - 2013 Fresno State Pro Day: Robbie Rouse, Phillip Thomas work out well in Fresno...Representatives from 19 NFL teams gathered at Fresno State’s pro day on March 20, where 17 players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf. The Bulldogs’ successor to former Fresno State running back and current member of the San Diego Chargers - Ryan Mathews - and a star safety were the notable participants.
Robbie Rouse, RB (5-foot-6, 184 pounds) - Rouse - who was at the NFL Scouting Combine - ran the 40-yard dash in 4.58 and 4.60 seconds. He had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-9 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.30 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.80 seconds. Rouse also performed 15 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Rouse had a good workout, and should hear his name called during the 2013 NFL Draft. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/24/13 - 2013 Fresno State Pro Day: Representatives of 19 NFL teams traveled to Fresno State on Wednesday in large part to see if All-America free safety Phillip Thomas and record-breaking running back Robbie Rouse could improve upon their combine performances. Each was able to do so. The workout may have been even more important for the short (but not small) Rouse, who registered a disappointing 4.80-seconds in the 40-yard dash after measuring in at 5-feet-5 (3/8), 190 pounds in Indianapolis. While clearly shorter than scouts would prefer, Rouse is a powerfully-built runner whose vertical and lateral burst helped him generate a school-record 4,647 rushing yards over his career.
Rouse was clocked at a much more respectable 4.57-seconds in the 40-yard dash Wednesday, perhaps pushing him back into the draft. Regardless of whether he's drafted or not, Rouse's game-tape speaks for itself. He'll get an opportunity and will prove to be a tough cut for an NFL team due to his natural elusiveness and surprising power. "The 40 [yard dash] that I ran at the combine was definitely not what I wanted to run and for me to come out here and run the 4.5 that I wanted was definitely a goal that I set," Rouse said. "It felt good to get it." - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/24/13 - 2013 Senior Bowl, Runningbacks...5. Robbie Rouse, Fresno State. If you're looking for a complete back, Rouse won 't do. But if you're looking for a role player in the mold of Darren Sproles, and maybe with stronger legs, then Rouse is your guy. He's diminutive to be sure, just under 5 feet 6, but he has incredible quickness and explosiveness. He'll make plays at the next level, just as he did in college when he scored 14 touchdowns and totaled over 1,700 yards in back-to-back years. Just don't expect him to become a full-time back. - Dave Richard, CBSSports.com
12/24/12 - TOP 10: THE MOST UNDERRATED PLAYERS YOU NEED TO WATCH IN BOWL SEASON: 4-Robbie Rouse, Fresno State, RB: The Bulldogs have had some terrific backs of the years, but Rouse is their all-time leading rusher with over 4,600 yards. The rugged 5-7, 190-pounder has gone over 100 yards nine times this fall. He's also a great receiver out of the backfield with 58 receptions this season. - Bruce Feldman, CBSSports.com
12/24/12 - BOWL HISTORY: Fresno State has played in 23 bowl games and has a record of 12-11. The Bulldogs have lost four of their last five bowls. The lone win in that span was a 40-28 triumph over Georgia Tech in the 2007 Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho.
Scouting the running game: Senior RB Robbie Rouse is the durable featured running back gaining 73.8 percent of Fresno State's rushing yards. He has gained 1,468 yards on 269 carries. The Bulldogs' next option is freshman Marteze Waller, who has only 174 yards. Junior QB Derek Carr has shown the ability to run out of the pocket and gain yards. He has positive yardage of 215 yards but sacks have limited him to 42 net yards. - The Sports Xchange
