Other players flashed on offense during the 2017 season for the Miami Hurricanes. No one was more consistent in their contribution on the field than wide receiver Braxton Berrios. The New England Patriots have drafted the slot receiver in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Selling out on each route, at the cost of putting himself in the way, Berrios makes sure to give his all after he releases from the line of scrimmage.
An all-academic member of the Hurricanes program, Berrios is simply more than just another football player. That said, he’s a damn good football player. Look for the receiver to contribute on special teams while competing to earn targets on offense in the near future.
With the number of ProCane wide receivers dwindling in the league, Berrios’ presence in the NFL helps to bring more legitimacy to the current alumni group. Berrios joins Travis Benjamin, Allen Hurns, Phillip Dorsett, Rashawn Scott, Malcolm Lewis, and Stacy Coley in the ProCane receiver group. As a NFL rookie, Berrios should continue to do the ’Canes familia proud from game day to working in the community. Berrios now becomes teammates with fellow ProCane WR Phillip Dorsett.
With New England trading away WR Brandin Cooks and WR Danny Amendola signing with the Dolphins in the offseason, there’s room on the roster for Berrios to make an immediate contribution on offense.
Congratulations on your big achievement, Braxton!
