Quick hit: Though he'll start out his Auburn career as a safety, Roberts can move to corner at a moment's notice. Has ability to play any spot in the secondary given his top-flight cover skills and excellent footwork.
Malzahn says: "He's a guy we identified early, that our coaches stayed on. He's a very good tackler. He'll do whatever. He played quarterback for his high school when they needed somebody, and we really feel good about Stephen Roberts."
