  Draft Scout by Conference









  With one more season to play, Russell has already left his own indelible mark on CU. Named the Buffs' offensive scout team player of the year in 2017, he earned a scholarship during fall camp in 2018. By the end of that season, he was a starter. He enters this season with 38 games and 28 starts under his belt and he's developed into one of the better tight ends in the Pac-12. Last season, he led the Buffs in receptions (25) and receiving yards (307). Russell has spent the offseason trying to be even better, though. "It's been really, really good," he said of the offseason. "I kind of got to grow a lot more in my pass game and understanding the different things I can do. That's probably where I've seen the most growth."

In spring, Russell said he focused on "hand placement in my blocking and also having more vertical footwork instead of horizontal. I've definitely improved a lot in both categories. Coach (Clay) Patterson has helped tremendously." Clay Patterson was hired as CU's tight ends coach in January and there may not be a better coach/player fit than Patterson and Russell. "It's kind of like having another me in the room," said Russell, who shares a love of country music with his new position coach. "We're very similar - the way we think, the way we talk; our vernacular even in the meeting room." - Daily Camera
