Former Bronco linebacker Kamalei Correa had a notable first season with the Baltimore Ravens. Though his stat line might not have jumped off the paper for Baltimore entering his second season he should be making some heads turn.
The Hawaiian native saw action in nine games last season and started in one game, however, Correa had just four tackles, some of that dip in production could be a result of switching from outside to inside linebacker.
"Offseason watching the playoffs and everything it actually gave me a chance to sit back and see others play. I thought to myself why can't that be me. You know I work hard and it really just hit me like they picked me for a reason I'm here I can do it so why not be me," said, Ravens linebacker Kamalei Correa.
Correa left early from Boise State and was picked in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft. Entering in his second year in the league he will see more playing time something that he has seen before as a freshman for the Broncos he had 12 tackles, the following year he collected 12 sacks in 14 games.
"Year one to year two was such a big difference I feel like in year two you know what to expect. You know what's coming. You know your playbook a little more so in actuality it really allows you to play faster,” said, Correa.
Going forward the former Bronco should be starting at inside linebacker with Zachary Orr retiring this offseason.
