Bobby Brandt

OT | (6-6, 307, 5.4) | Indiana
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: High school tight end and basketball player. Redshirted in 1998 with a right knee injury, which he re-injured, and had surgery in October '98. Was hampered by a right ankle injury in '99 and didn't catch a pass. Had postseason surgery. Came back to start every game at tight end in 2000 and caught five passes for 78 yards and a touchdown. Moved to right tackle in '01 and started every game. A bulging disc in his back sidelined him in spring of '02. Brandt had surgery on his back but returned to start 10-of-11 games.

Positives: Snapped for placement kicks. Decent athlete with very good size and some foot quickness and agility. Big wingspan and all-around athletic ability.

Negatives: Raw. Plays tall and erect. Has a soft body after adding weight to play offensive tackle, which made him stiffer. No longer looks as athletic. Lacks OT skills, such as punch and technique to redirect. Gets bad fits and is unable to sustain. Not durable. Probably has to play right tackle but lacks bulk strength.

Summary: Likely to play in the NFL because of his smarts, size, potential and athleticism, but he must answer injury questions among others.
