Braxton Berrios had a breakout season as a Miami Hurricanes Senior. He won the team’s receiving triple crown. Berrios led the Hurricanes in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in 2017. He was also an excellent punt returner.

Berrios got his chance to shine this season with several receivers moving on to the NFL after the 2016 season. The Miami Hurricanes lost leading receiving Stacy Coley and tight end David Njoku who was a first-round pick of the Browns in last year’s draft. Ahmmon Richards dealt with injuries thoughout the 2017 season. That gave Berrios a chance to become Malik Rosier’s favorite target.

Berrios finished the season with 55 receptions for 679 yards for 12.3 yards per reception and nine touchdowns. He’s only the second Miami player in the last five years to lead the Hurricanes outright in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.

Berrios got a chance to work out in front of the greatest coach in NFL history the New England Patriots Bill Belichick. He is projected to be a sixth or seventh round draft pick. The Patriots have to replace wide receiver Danny Amendola who they lost to the Dolphins in free agency. Berrios would be the perfect replacement.

Berrios got another chance to show what he can do after suffering a torn pectoral muscle during the bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis earlier this month. His game is predicated on speed and quickness.

Berrios did not run the 40 time he hoped for at the combine. He made up for that at the Pro Day. Berrios spoke to HurricaneSports.Com about his workout.
