Every week or so we like to take a look at how Scarlet Knights alums are doing in the pro league. While this has not been a big week for our (former) boys in red, there are a couple of mentions to make.
Leonte Carroo- As a rookie in the league, it is tough just to get reps. Carroo is discovering that, but he is still making himself known. A nice profile of Leonte was published a week or so ago by Andy Cohen on miamidolphins.com in his A.C. in the A.M. column.
As Cohen stated, Carroo is waiting for his chance to make his mark. However, his chance has not yet come. He only played one down in the Dolphin’s win over Buffalo this past Sunday.
Tyler Kroft- the Cincinnati Bengals tight end had a light week in the win against in-state rival Cleveland Browns. Kraft only snagged one pass for three yards. This season, Kroft has been fairly silent, despite getting some major playing time in past games due to Tyler Eifert’s ankle/back injury.
Kraft’s season numbers are nine catches for 86 yards.
Logan Ryan- Logan is having a great season. The Patriots cornerback is currently leading the team with 45 tackles this season, 38 of them solo.
If he continues at this pace, he will smash his own all-time record of 58, recorded just last season.
Devin McCourty- Right on Logan Ryan’s heels in tackles this season is teammate McCourty. McCourty has 33 solo tackles with four additional assists.
The seven year veteran is continuing to be a force in the league, moving toward his seventh season with over 60 tackles and assists.
Duron Harmon- To finish up with Rutgers North this week, Duron Harmon is having a good year. The free safety is on track to meet his totals from 2015, which is important, as this is the year Duron is eligible for free agent status.
Free agency is a critical point for any NFL player. It gives the league an opportunity to determine the worth of a player. Duron does not have to leave the Pats next year, but free agency certainly gives him additional clout in negotiations.
Brandon Coleman- Brandon only had one reception on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he made the most of it, snagging a 10 yard laser-like pass from Drew Brees for a TD late in the game.
However, it was not enough, as the Chiefs won, capping it with a late field goal on the next possession.
Kenny Britt- While the Rams are not having a good year, Kenny Britt is doing just fine. Most Giant and Rutgers fans were torn watching the game on Sunday, but Kenny was not a major factor in the game, with three receptions for 43 yards. However, one you should see is Britt’s amazing reception for a TD the previous week, in a loss to the Detroit Lions.

It just shows what a fighter Britt is. Great video!
So, that about wraps up this week in the NFL for our Scarlet Knight alums. Stay tuned, we still have another half of the season to go!
