2021 National Scouting Combine | DB | Defensive Back | Dionte Ruffin | Jeremiah Wait | Jimmy Kibble | Player Comparison | Tre Brown

DB Dionte Ruffin – Western Kentucky: 2021 NFL Draft Prospect and started all 12 games at Western Kentucky this past season. Consistent player who shows he’s someone that can be relied upon. Shows quick feet and a good burst, but has to show he can transition consistently out of his breaks. His issue is being able to hold up and make plays with contested catches. He came to the Combine and performed really well, especially with the Positional Drills and showing the ability to get out of his breaks. When comparing him to 2021 NFL Draft Prospect Tre Brown of Oklahoma, he showed he wasn’t that far off.

The biggest lesson is don’t get too comfortable.  Always wait your turn, stay humble, and your time is coming.  If you are the starter, there is always someone out there working to take your spot.

My speed, agility and athleticism as a whole.  I have a great closing burst and I jump with the elite.  I am a strong guy. My IQ of the game is up there, It got me on the field as a freshman.   I am a player that will give a coach my all.  All I need is a shot.  I have played special teams my whole career in high school and college.  I will do whatever it takes.  I am very coachable
