Braxton Berrios‘ career strengths and weaknesses as told by the advanced analytics and film.

New York Jets training camp primers:

Here’s everything you need to know about Braxton Berrios as he looks to maintain his excellence as a returner and make an impact on offense in 2020.

Two positive stats to maintain

Overall punt returning effectiveness

Berrios was a fantastic punt returner in 2019. His average of 11.4 yards per punt return ranked third-best out of 38 players in the league with at least 10 tries. Football Outsiders’ advanced measurement of efficiency, DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average), supported Berrios’ excellence as they had the Jets ranked fourth-best in punt return DVOA.

Punt returning consistency

What makes Berrios’ punt return average so impressive is the fact that he accrued it with a long return of only 25 yards. It speaks to his remarkable consistency. Berrios picked up at least 10 yards on 13 of his 21 punt returns (61.9%).

One negative stat to improve

Optimism , stems from his collegiate success at Miami , second year in the system, big YAC guy. Vertically challenged, but WR Screens could be huge in Jet Offense with new mobile Offensive Lineman. Double Slot with Crowder.
