2016 NFL Draft: Third round pick Bronson Kaufusi stats and information

New, comment

Another Defensive end for the Ravens

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

After a selection of Kamalei Correa, the Ravens have now selected Bronson Kaufusi. Here is what you need to know:

  • Broad Shoulders, huge wingspan, and an athletic frame
  • Doesn't shy from contact, and is physical at the point of attack
  • Possesses good burst and accelerates smoothly
  • amazing motor to chase down ballcarriers
  • Alert and works with agility, balance, and awarenece
  • Has enough intelligence to drop back into coverage in shallow routes
  • Combine top performer in both 3 cone drill and 20 yd shuttle, meaning excellent acceleration

STATS for 2015 season:

41 solo tackles

57 total tackles

18.5 tackles for loss

10 sacks

1 interception

Consistently Bronson grew into his skills. From freshman to senior year he showed consistent growth and undoubtedly still can bring it. The big knock is Kaufusi is already 24 years old.

Weaknesses:

  • Can succumb to blocks quickly from angles
  • Some say too tall. at 6'6" needs to get lower
  • needs to bulk up, strength is an issue
  • can't always turn the corner to finish the rush
  • tried to be a linebacker in 2014 losing weight, did not go well

NFL.com's Bottom Line

Developing talent who flashes enough on tape to believe that some of his production could translate to the NFL. His lack of mass and functional strength could create consistency issues for him early in his career.
