Scouting Report: Jeff Ruffin
Name: Jeff Ruffin School: Illinois Year: 5Sr Ht: 6-3 Wt: 295 40: 5.21 Pos: DT Bio: Played in nine games as a senior seeing action at right defensive end and totaled 22 tackles, 2 tackles for loss and 2 sacks. Junior totals were 22/4/1 after 21/6/5 the prior season. Pos: Versatile defensive lineman that will do the extras to get ahead on the field. Plays with good lean and leverage, quick off the snap with a nice first step and moves laterally defending the run. Works to keep his pads low, redirects to the action and immediately locates the ball. Decent weight room numbers which are occasionally transferred onto the football field. Neg: 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: Though a solid collegiate lineman, Ruffin does not stand out in any aspect of his game. Would be best bulking up and adding muscle to his frame then staying inside at tackle where his weight room strength could be used to its' maximum.
