Sam Rogers was seen across the board as the top or one of the top 2 fullbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft class but with not more than 2 or 3 fullbacks usually being picked, there was no guarantee that Rogers would go in the 2017 NFL Draft. However, Sam Rogers will not have to enter undrafted free agency. https://twitter.com/RamsNFL/status/858422577982656512 Sam Rogers has been selected 206th overall in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams. Rogers had a tremendous career being used at fullback early on and in a running back/h-back role this past season with Rogers making 25 career starts and playing all four years in Blacksburg without being redshirted after being a walk-on who earned a scholarship within weeks of his arrival in Blacksburg. Rogers had a great career as arguably the best fullback in Virginia Tech history and was able to do it all rushing for 692 yards and 4 touchdowns along with catching 72 passes for 802 yards and 7 touchdowns. More than that, Rogers was a great leader who gave it all every time he was on the field and will be a tremendous addition for the Rams' locker room. Congrats to Sam Rogers on being selected in the 2017 NFL Draft.
