Roman jumps big but he is not tight in the air. That's a technical issue... In his Nebelhorn program, you can see very well on the first quad salchow. His feet are not tight together in the air. He also tends to be tilted in the air. Alaine, who is very short, had the same issue. Big jumps, not tight in the air... prone to UR. This can be corrected. I believe it's a more positive way to see things isn't it? Saying he is tall, is sort of accepting that his rotation issues cannot be fixed. I believe Roman can improve on this.It's not the only reason a skater can UR, but being as tall as Roman is does make jump rotations a problem -- there's a reason he struggles to rotate triple-triples, which should not otherwise be an issue for a male skater who can do a quad.
