Week Nine ProCane of the Week: LB/Quincy Roche - (four tackles (career high), two QBHits, 1.0 sack (first career sack), one forced fumble) Similar to another rookie who had a breakout game last week, Roche has had quite the journey to get to where he is now. The transfer from Temple was not drafted until 216th overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers. And despite having needs at the position, Roche was surprisingly cut before the season. The New York Giants did their research and picked up the tenacious and work hard pass rusher.

Roche has immediately been a contributor, especially in pressure situations. In Monday Night Football two weeks ago, Roche had a career high three tackles, but a key third-down play in the fourth quarter where Roche converged on Mahomes, which led to a sack and subsequent field goal. This flashiness was obvious at the U, but the flair off the edge was even more impressive this past week against the Las Vegas Raiders. As the Raiders were driving down 23-16 against the Giants, Roche picked up his first career sack, which was also a fourth down strip sack with less than a minute left. Giants defensive end, Leonard Williams, recovered the fumble and sealed the game for the blue.

ProCanes Week Nine Highlights:

Roche is proving to be a mainstay at the NFL level, along with Dolphins, Jaelan Phillips, and Bills, Gregory Rousseau. Between the three of them, Miami is the only program with three rookies to record a sack this season.

Roche’s new teammate and ProCane, Trent Harris, also had a strong performance as he tallied five tackles, which is the most he’s had since 2019. Jaguars safety, Rayshawn Jenkins, also shined on the defensive side with four tackles in a 9-6 upset over Buffalo. Raiders linebacker, Denzel Perryman, continues his tackling brigade as he had another double-digit performance with 10 tackles. He is second in the league with 91 tackles on the season. On the offensive side, Browns tight end, David Njoku, only had one reception but it was a touchdown.

Week 10 Projected ProCane of the Week: DE/Gregory Rousseau - Rousseau has been fantastic this season, enough to earn a spot on the PFF all-rookie mid-season team. PFF’s Michael Renner wrote: “he’s racked up 13 pressures in two games against Miami, compared to only three pressures in his other five outings. Rousseau has the length and get-off to be a genuine pocket-collapser at the NFL level.” He’s earned an 87.7 PFF Grade. While Rousseau didn’t get the chance to play Trevor Lawrence during his elite 15.5-sack 2019 season, he gets an opportunity to tear apart the Jags offensive line today.
