A Kruger Rumor (edit: Kruger to the Browns) in NFL Draft, Scouting, and Free Agent Talk Posted March 11, 2013 I lke both Kruger and Avril and have "lobbied" for both of them on here in the past, but after the combine and seeing the linebackers and ends in there, i just dont see spending the money on Kruger or Avril. Theyre good IMO but there is just so much better talent in the later rds of the draft and with a coach like Pagano and Manusky, they can make a playmaker out of anybody it seems and we should skip both Kruger and Avril and (reluctantly) stick with Hughes in his last year and load up on talent in the draft. because i wonder really, if these guys are any better than Hughes. We obviously know they are no Freeney in a 4-3, but Kruger's motives for his (great) year is questionable, especially and obviously to his own team, the Ravens who are letting him go. I mean he had 9 sacks, right? Watt had 22 as a DT, and Von Miller had like 21 in the same position that kruger could only come up with 9, right?! I guess what im saying is this, Krugers big year wasnt even good enough to break into the better 50% of the league in his position. And people on here are talking about signing him to 9 and 11 million?! Really guys?! I would be willing to bet the farm that, as deep as this draft is in defensive players, there is another Von Miller in there somewhere. But I would NOT spend Millions on Kruger.
