Former Harvard University tight end/H-back Kyle Juszczyk recently completed his first NFL minicamp with the Baltimore Ravens and is projected to be the starting fullback for the defending Super Bowl champions, according to this afternoon’s release by the Crimson sports information department.
Juszczyk, who was selected in the fourth round of this year’s NFL Draft, has transitioned into a fullback due to the team releasing three-time Pro Bowler Vonte Leach.
The two-time All-American and three-time All Ivy League selection finished his career in Cambridge as the program’s all-time leader among tight ends in receptions (125), receiving yards (1,576) and touchdown receptions (22). He ranked third all-time in touchdowns, sixth all-time in receptions and seventh all-time in touchdown receptions.
Excluding Juszczyk, Harvard will have four alums competing for a job in training camp and they are the following:
* Ryan Fitzpatrick ’05, QB (Tennessee Titans)
* Desmond Bryant ’09, DT (Cleveland Browns)
* Brent Osborne ’11, T (Seattle Seahawks)
* Kevin Murphy ’12, T (Minnesota Vikings)
Below is a video the Ravens produced from their YouTube Channel featuring Juszczyk, who shares some fond memories of playing football, along with his favorite game-day tunes.
