If this is a serious question, they do depending on what style defense a team plays. Basically in alot of defenses the Strong Safety plays the role of a Rover, Roy Wiliams of Oklahoma was a good recent example of this. Generally though you just dont hear them referrred to as Rovers, there strong safeties who move in and out and often line up as LB's.
