BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 67/16/11. Also intercepted one pass and broke up three more last year. Junior totals were 67/15/10.
POSITIVES: Hard-working leader of the Washington State defense with marginal upside for the next level. Quick off the snap, plays with good lean and exploits immobile blockers. Works his hands to get off blocks, quickly alters his angle of attack and makes plays.
NEGATIVES: Possesses only a short-area burst of speed, which he cannot sustain. Easily knocked from his angle of attack, cannot get off blocks and controlled at the point by opponents.
ANALYSIS: A productive collegiate player, Bruce has potential as a two-gap defensive lineman once he physically matures. Practice-squad material with the attitude necessary to make it.
