Position:DT Class: Sr School:
Big Ten Ht., Wt.: 6'3, 295 40 Time: 5.21 Grade: 3.17
BIO: Played in nine games as a senior seeing action at right defensive end and totaled 22/2/2. Junior totals were 22/4/1 after 21/6/5 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Versatile defensive lineman that does the dirty work. Plays with leverage, quick off the snap and moves laterally defending the run. Decent weight-room numbers which are transferred onto the football field.
NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk on the inside, not quick with his hands and makes himself a target for opponents. Not light on his feet and cannot quickly alter his angle of attack.
ANALYSIS: A solid collegiate lineman, Ruffin does not stand out in any aspect of his game. Must bulk up his frame so his weight-room strength can be used to its maximum.
