Former Boise State DE Kamalei Correa drafted by Baltimore Ravens

Though he had to wait for the second day of the draft, Mr. Correa was able to get his name called.

And there it is folks: Kamalei Correa to the Baltimore Ravens in the second round at pick number 42.

The former Bronco had many projections that possibly had him as a late first rounder. And, as we all found out, that was not the case. Be that as it may, Correa is the fifth highest defensive player drafted for Boise State.

Ah well.

The Broncos are certainly going to miss his production. Starting as a true freshman, Mr. Correa had a great career for the Broncos: 40 total games; 69 solo tackles; 41 assists; 20 sacks for 121 yard loss; 31.5 tackles for loss for 158 yards; and five total fumble recoveries.

While he played with a hand in the dirt for the Broncos his athleticism and mobility in the NFL may be better suited at the outside linebacker spot.

Landing in Baltimore may be a boon with veteran, and stable, Head Coach John Harbaugh leading the team.

Want to watch some highlights of Mr. Correa absolutely wrecking fools? Ok.

Correa has some things to prove as he makes a name for himself in the NFL. Mostly to punish other teams for not taking him sooner.

Congratulations to Mr. Correa and hopefully he will be able to have a long lasting career.
