Ravens' Top Ten Biggest Draft Busts: #9

New, comments

Just like #10, the '9th Biggest Draft Bust' in Baltimore Ravens history truly hasn't had a full opportunity to show whether his selection in the 2nd round of the 2009 NFL has really paid off or not. However, after two years in the NFL, DE Paul Kruger has certainly not been the type of disruptive player the Ravens envisioned him to be. His first year, the word was that he was unable to make the transition to a linebacker position and grasp the Ravens complicated playbook.

For the 2010 season, he put on weight to be a down lineman and a pass rushing specialist. While Kruger has flashed the ability to harass the quarterback, his playing time has been very limited and the drafting of not only Sergio Kindle in 2010 and talk of drafting another defensive end/hybrid linebacker seems to say they do not have the confidence in him to pan out as they had hoped.

Until then, Kruger joins Kindle on this list as one of the Top Ten Draft Busts in Baltimore Ravens history.
