Koger, Kevin

Card: Leaf Rookies 2012
Acquired: 2012, Box Breaker

Kevin Koger was an honorable mention All Big 10 tight end for the Michigan Wolverines. Quickly in his freshman season he established himself as a go to guy and proved it by taking his first reception to the house 26 yards. He’d end up starting 31 of 46 games over his career and was the team captain for the offense in 2011. In that final year at Michigan, Kevin hauled in 23 receptions for 244 yards and 4 touchdowns.  With good size (6’4″, 258), attitude, and work ethic, Kevin was thought to sneak in somewhere between the 5th and 7th round of the 2012 draft.  His skills as a pass catcher in an heavy run oriented offense hurt his stock somewhat, but an Achilles tear did him in, sidelining him for 6 to 8 months afterwards, scaring teams away completely.  After receiving surgery, Kevin remains optimistic to be signed by an NFL team once he completes his rehabilitation. In the meantime he’s been spotted coaching football at Saline High School in Michigan.
