BIOGRAPHY: "Two-year starter who ranked second on the team in tackles as a senior, finishing the year with 97/4/6. Junior totals 85 tackles."
POSITIVES: "Athletic, imposing defensive back best in a straight line defending the run. Deceptively fast, quickly closes to the action,
and is hard hitter. Physically beats down opponents, defending the throw or brings ball carriers down on initial contact.
Displays good range to the sidelines, covers a good amount of area on the field, and shows the ability to recover from mistakes.
Breaks down well and plays with good knee bend."
NEGATIVES: "Marginally instinctive, takes poor angles to the action, and shows a lot of indecision in his game. Lacks the great break
to the ball out of his plant. Tackles a bit tall."
ANALYSIS: "Bruton is a terrific athlete considered by scouts to be a hard worker and leader on the field. That being the case, he displays
limited ball skills and is almost one-dimensional as a run-defending safety. Bruton has the physical attributes to be a strong
safety at the next level, yet he must really improve his play in coverage for any chance to make his mark at the next level."
