The comprehensive Tim Ruskell draft history

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Tim Ruskell's teams tend to go for defensive linemen in the first round and those defensive linemen tend to be from the South. Go back to 1992 when Ruskell was promoted to director of college scouting in Tampa Bay. Ruskell's employers have used 15 different first-round choices since then, and here's how those numbers break down:

9 of those first-round choices were used on defensive players.

6 of those first-round choices were used on defensive linemen

6 of those first-round choices came out of Florida colleges

3 of those first-round choices came from west of the Mississippi River. That would be DE Lawrence Jackson (USC), DE Regan Upshaw (Cal) and QB Trent Dilfer (Fresno State).

Here's the history of choices in rounds one through three of Ruskell's teams going back to 1992.
