John Harbaugh Wants Kyle Juszczyk Involved More On Offense

Posted Oct 8, 2013

Rookie fullback Kyle Juszczyk was targeted with the first pass of his career in Miami.


It wasn’t a lot of action, but it was something.

Fullback Kyle Juszczyk was targeted with a pass for the first time in his young career in Miami on Sunday.  He didn’t catch it. And it was one of just two offensive snaps he saw the entire game.

But it was a taste of perhaps more action to come.

“We’d like to see more with him,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday. “I think he’s coming on. [He’s a] talented guy, and we’re looking forward to seeing how we can develop him even more.”

Juszczyk has been active for all five of the Ravens’ games thus far, but has been used only on special teams. He plays on all the special teams units.

The fourth-round pick is an intriguing prospect because he’s versatile. He can be lined up at fullback or tight end, and brings a blend of power, blocking and pass catching.

While Juszczyk had trouble as a lead blocker early in training camp, his hands shined at times. He caught four passes for 41 yards in the preseason.

So far this season, the Ravens have used Pro Bowler Vonta Leach as their lead run blocker and occasional pass catcher out of the backfield. They have leaned on veteran Dallas Clark, who has 16 receptions for 175 yards, as a split-wide tight end. But Clark wasn’t targeted by a single pass in Miami.

If Juszczyk is going to see more offensive snaps, it would probably be mostly at Clark’s expense.

The rookie was targeted on the Ravens’ first series when they were facing a third-and-7. Juszczyk was lined up wide as a receiver, then motioned to the slot. He drew coverage from Dolphins safety Jimmy Wilson.

The other Ravens receivers cleared out space for Juszczyk to run underneath. He came across the defense on a drag route, but Joe Flacco had to get rid of the ball quickly with pressure on him. The throw was a bit too far in front of Juszczyk, who made a one-handed diving attempt before it went incomplete.
