Elements with an ARIA [role] that require children to contain a specific [role] are missing some or all of those required children.
When I use the Chrome Lighthouse (based on the axe accessibility testing tool) to assess the accessibility of the TelerikDropDownList I am getting several issues.

The DropDownList does not have an <input> element, and if you set its Id parameter it will render as the id attribute of its topmost <span> element. The DefaultText renders in a span that is denoted by the aria-described-by attribute and so setting a default text should provide a description even if there is no item selected. The issue here is that there is a trailing space at the end of the value and that will be fixed.
That said, we have these reports on our radar and we will be investigating them.
