NFL Draft 2016: Bronson Kaufusi visiting eight teams

The buzz around one certain player coming out of the western part of the country has certainly intensified over the last few days. Former BYU defensive end Bronson Kaufusi is certainly gaining a lot of attention and it may just be at the correct time.

Earlier this week, it was reported that one scout sees him as a possible first-round selection. Now, it seems that Kaufusi is getting a ton of love from teams as reports have surfaced he is visiting and working out with eight teams.

Lots of buzz around BYU DL Bronson Kaufusi (6'7/285 lbs, 82nd SPARQ%).

This is certainly looking very good for the six-foot-seven defensive end. He had a great career with the Cougars and he looks to turn that into a successful run in the NFL.

The only downside Bronson Kaufusi could have is his age as he will be 25 in his rookie season after a Latter Day Saints mission with the school. However, he has shown what he could be a great player in the next level as he recorded 43 tackles for loss and 25.5 sacks over four years with the Cougars.
