Prospect Summary

Background

*Experience as both a starting guard and tackle with the Badgers, plus added reps as a heavy personnel extra tight end

*Volunteered time with Difference MAKER Football Camp for students with disabilities

System

Scheme tendencies: Run-heavy offense, frequent under center alignments, inside power concepts with pullers, heavy personnel groupings (12, 22, 21, etc.)

Pros: Logan Bruss is a stereotypical Wisconsin offensive lineman who will appeal to teams who implement a high volume of gap/power concepts along their offensive front. Bruss showcases strong hands, effective leveraging ability to turn defenders out of gaps or seal on back blocks, and plenty of push in drive blocks when charged with climbing vertically against an interior defender on the A-level. Bruss also has the allure of versatility on his resume from a role and alignment perspective. He’s started games at both guard and tackle for the Badgers over the course of his career at Wisconsin and returned to right tackle for the 2021 season. Teams that require added versatility up front for utility offensive linemen will surely note his experience in multiple spots. I get some Michael Deiter vibes from Bruss at this point in his development.

Cons: Bruss is currently more of a scheme-specific option than he is someone with the multiplicity to play in any system across the league. Despite his experience working both inside and outside on the Badgers’ line, I didn’t necessarily see an athletic profile that I would feel comfortable with on the edge. There are also instances of Bruss’ eyes playing faster than his feet and he can be compromised with his balance both in space and at the point of first contact as a result. Reps at tackle in 2021 didn’t provide me any clarity in helping or hindering that perception.
