Draft Scout News
08/31/13 - WR Brandon Kaufman was released by the Buffalo Bills on Saturday as the team got down to the league-mandated 53-player roster to start the season.
04/30/13 - Bills agree to terms with 16 Undrafteds...WR Brandon Kaufman - 6’5” 216 - Eastern Washington...Kaufman finished his 2012 campaign with an FCS NCAA record 1,850 receiving yards with 93 receptions and 16 receiving touchdowns in just 14 games. He averaged 19.9 yards per catch with a long of 93 yards. “Big, strong and deceptive speed where he gets on top of people and gets downfield. He uses his height, length and strong hands to make a lot of plays downfield for them,” said Bills scout Brad Forsyth. “He dominated that level of competition. A junior coming out early so he’s still young, but he’s got a legit chance.” - Chris Brown, BuffaloBills.com
03/16/13 - 2013 EWU Pro Day: The two-time FCS All-American caught 221 passes for 3,731 yards (16.9 per catch) and 33 touchdowns in his career as a 37-game starter. He had a FCS-record 1,850 yards receiving in 2012, to go along with 93 receptions and 16 TDs. Besides Kaufman, Herd and Johnson are both represented by Cameron Foster and the Foster Easley Sports Management Group of Seattle, which also represents former Eagle and NFL All-Pro offensive tackle Michael Roos. “We just keep training - finally some football training,” added Kaufman. “We get to run some hills and routes finally instead of just running in a straight line and using starts which we never might use again.” - EWU football
03/16/13 - 2013 EWU Pro Day: Because of the weather, only the 40 took place outdoors, just before the storm hit. The rest of the running drills took place on a new surface in the EWU Strength and Conditioning Center. “Overall I think all the numbers were good, even though we went inside and had to run on that new surface, which we were unfamiliar with,” said Kaufman. “But I think we all did well on it and adjusted. That’s all you can do.”
At the combine, Kaufman had a 68.0 grade that ranked 18th among the group of 38 wide receivers. The second-tallest (6-foot-5) and seventh-biggest receiver at the combine (216 pounds), Kaufman also had a vertical jump of 33 1/2 inches in Indianapolis. That combination of attributes helped him consistently out-position and out-jump defensive backs for the ball in his 42-game career for the Eagles.
“That was a great experience - you just have to appreciate the process and be grateful you are there,” he said. “It was a long four days, but overall I’m extremely grateful I got the chance to meet with all the teams and showcase myself in front of everybody.” - EWU football
03/16/13 - 2013 EWU Pro Day: Kaufman Improves Four Marks at Pro Day...The weather conditions weren’t good by any stretch of the imagination, but the marks were much better for six former Eastern Washington University football players who tested in front of 18 National Football League scouts on EWU’s annual Pro Day Wednesday (March 6) in Cheney, Wash.
Wide receiver Brandon Kaufman, who participated in February’s NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Ind., improved on four marks, and several other players had impressive marks as well. But the weather - including a deluge of snow, sleet and rain that even caused a five-minute power outage - forced some of the testing indoors and limited the passing and catching drills scheduled later in the afternoon.
“I think it was a really good Pro Day - everyone did really well,” said Kaufman, who helped the Eagles to the NCAA Division I title in 2010 and a semifinal appearance in the playoffs this past fall. “The weather wasn’t ideal, but we were all willing to run routes - we’ve played in snow like this before.” - EWU football
