Paul Kruger Biography
Paul Kruger was born February 15, 1986 and is a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens. He was drafted by the Ravens in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He played college football at Utah.
On April 25, 2009, Kruger was selected in the second round (57th overall pick) of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens.
On November 29, 2009, in a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kruger intercepted a Dennis Dixon pass in overtime and returned it 22 yards to set the Ravens up for a game-winning 29-yard field goal by kicker Billy Cundiff.
During the 2010 offseason Kruger was looking to bulk up in order to make the move from linebacker to defensive end in Baltimore's 3-4 defense mostly because of the lack of playing time he saw at OLB.
2010 was a frustrating year for Kruger playing in a new position as a 3-4 DE, he only recorded one tackle, and one sack in very limited playing time, playing in just 11 games and no starts. He deflected two passes.
After a 2010 season in which he struggled to get playing time at defensive end, he was moved back to outside linebacker in the Ravens hybrid 3-4 defensive scheme in 2011. He saw much more action in 2011 playing as a situational pass rusher, coming in and replacing Ravens veteran linebacker Jarret Johnson for 3rd down passing situations. He managed to rack up 5.5 regular season sacks in his new role, along with 15 tackles. In addition to this, he also recorded a sack against New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the AFC championship game. The Ravens would go on to lose this game 23-20.
During the 2012 season, Kruger would become a significant part of the Ravens defense. In Week 10, against the Oakland Raiders, Kruger deflected a pass and picked an interception in a 55-20 win. During Week 16 against the New York Giants, he sacked quarterback Eli Manning in a 33-14 victory. During the Wild card round in the 2012 playoffs, he forced Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck to fumble. The Ravens would win 24-9. In the Divisional Round against the Denver Broncos, he sacked quarterback Peyton Manning and recovered a fumble in which the Ravens would go on to win 38-35 in double overtime.
