Snubbed by the Combine-put a possible FB for the Giants ?

YANKEE28 : 3/25/2020 9:09 am
Yesterday I gave a little background on FS Kenny Robinson, an interesting story and a player that will be taken on Day 3 of April's draft. I will try to do a few more threads on some other Day 3 players that might be on the Giants draft radar. I hope BBI finds them interesting.

Today's player is interesting because he grew up in a household a bit different than most of us. Different-unless your Dad and your uncle are former professional wrestlers.

Bronson Rechsteiner a fullback from Kennesaw State (a small college about 25 miles outside of Atlanta) is today's player I will discuss.

Rechsteiner's Dad wrestled as Rich Steiner, along with his brother Steve (Bronson's uncle) as they formed the Tag Team known as the Steiner Brothers. Back in the 80's, both Steiner's were very successful college wrestlers, on scholarship at the University of Michigan.

Bronson, in additional to playing high school football, was also a successful high school wrestler-just like his Dad and uncle.

At Kennesaw State, the team ran a double wing offense with Rechsteiner as the fullback. There is not a lot of full game tape of Kennesaw, but some You Tube highlights show the speed of Rechsteiner, and especially show his willingness as a crushing blocker.

Bronson Rechsteiner is hoping to be the first player ever drafted from Kennesaw. He was snubbed and not invited to the NFL Combine.

Kennesaw State was fortunate in that their Pro Day was March 11th, prior to the mass cancellation of other Pro Days throughout the country. Here are the numbers from Rechsteiner at the Pro Day:

Height 5' 10 1/4
Weight 223 pounds
40 Yard Dash: 4.48
Bench Reps: 35
Vertical Jump: 35.4″
Broad Jump: 10'
3 Cone Drill: 6.95
Shuttle Run: 4.22 

Certainly stand out numbers. One article I read indicated that 26 NFL teams attended the Kennesaw Pro Day. Another stated 20 NFL teams and 2 CFL Teams. Whatever the actual number, its clear that there is a lot of NFL interest in fullback Bronson Rechsteiner of Kennesaw State.

Another name to remember on Day 3 of the NFL Draft.

Interesting player

Thank you! With so many day 3 picks this series is cool.
One minor correction, dude.

It's Rick & Scott Steiner, not Rich & Steve.
thanks - love stuff like this.

Would be fun if the Giants pick him, but who knows what Judge is thinking in terms of the role of the FB.
The full-back position is interesting...  
BamaBlue : 3/25/2020 9:32 am : link
must be able to block effectively and catch the ball out of the backfield. Any indication on his pass catching ability?
Way Cool

Thanks for this.
Good find. He's fast for a fullback and very strong.  
Ira : 3/25/2020 9:36 am : link
He ran a 4.48 40 and bench presses 225 35 times.
If nothing else,  
Section331 : 3/25/2020 9:39 am : link
he has a great name for a FB! Good find.
We need to fulfill the promise of

Sean Bennett and his amazing preseason run!
With Penny signed I’m not sure we’d use a draft pick in a FB

Perhaps as an UDFA makes more sense for this kid.
223 lbs

Doesn't sound like an NFL FB to me.

Besides, we just re-signed Penny.

I think you missed your calling as a writer. :)
Op is burying the lead

if we sign this guy, he comes with his own theme music

I'd be worried he'd test postive for PEDs  
ZogZerg : 3/25/2020 12:30 pm : link
And, why did he go to school no one has ever heard of?
There must be more to the story.....
I assume you are not proposing him as a FB. More like a short yardage  
Ivan15 : 3/25/2020 12:53 pm : link
and goal line RB or H-Back type.
He is a thoroughly unpleasant young man!  
TC : 3/25/2020 1:29 pm : link
Thanks! I love 'em!

Very surprising to watch on video, he's got a lot more speed and agility than most FB's to go along with his strength. A 4.48 40 and 6.95 3-cone are nothing to sneeze at.

Wouldn't it be funny if the 223lb Rechsteiner wound up blocking for the 233lb Barkley? Rechsteiner doesn't look like he has an ounce of fat on him.
