Draft Scout Dave Kruger News

04/30/13 - Browns sign 18 undrafted free agents...Dave Kruger - Started 37 of 49 career games at the University of Utah (2009-12)… Totaled 116 career tackles, 3.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble… Brother, Paul, is a linebacker for the Browns and brother, Joe, was selected by Philadelphia in the seventh round in this year’s draft… Attended Timpanogos High School in Orem, Utah. - ClevelandBrowns.com
07/27/12 - Top-five Utah prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 5. DT Dave Kruger...The younger brother of former Ute standout (and current starting OLB for the Baltimore Ravens) Paul Kruger, Dave could be on the verge of a breakout senior campaign considering that he'll likely be facing only one blocker most of the time while opponents focus on Lotulelei. Kruger, who has played in 38 of a possible 39 games (including 27 starts) since joining the Utes, added 15 pounds of muscle during the off-season according to Whittingham. The added strength and mass should help Utah rank as one of toughest run defenses in the Pac-12 despite the fact that they are replacing two of their three linebackers. Kruger, like Lotulelei, has never been a stats monster. He's averaged just 29 tackles over his three seasons as a starter and has only four sacks during that time. His length, strength and durability, however, will be sure to intrigue NFL scouts looking for either an interior run-plugger for the 4-3 or as a classic five-technique defensive end for the 3-4 capable of setting the edge. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
