Scouting Report: Jeff Ruffin
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 22/2/2. Junior totals were 22/4/1 after 21/6/5 as a sophomore.
Pos: 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.
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: 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 could be used to its' maximum.
