Nigel Bradham OLB Florida State #13
Ht: 6’3″Wt: 237
Prototypical size. Usually shows good awareness and vision on the field; does a nice job keeping his eyes in the backfield and/or on the ball carrier. Does a nice job fighting through traffic at the line of scrimmage; excels at making himself small to slip through holes in offensive line. Patient and seems to have good instincts; rarely over-pursues; takes good angles. Does a nice job staying low to take on blocks. Coaches speak highly of his work ethic.
Still learning where he needs to be on the field; what looks like patient play is sometimes just him being unsure of where he should attack. Better moving forward than going sideline-to-sideline. Laterally quickness is marginal and often gets caught taking missteps which slow him down and allow offensive linemen to get to him. Inconsistent in man coverage; lacks the fluid agility to stick with more athletic tight ends and running backs. Needs to improve consistency and ability to keep his head in the game; occasionally gets wrapped up in a block which he should be able to shed, but appears to focus more on winning the block than disengaging and attacking the ball carrier. Inconsistent tackling; will deliver the big hits, but needs to do a better job wrapping up the ball carrier; he has the size to excel in this area of the game. Needs to improve his lower-body strength to help hold his ground at the point of attack against the run.
Bradham has the size to be an effective run stopper at the next level, and could excel as a 3-4 outside linebacker. He’s slightly undersized for the position, but is extremely well built and stronger than his listed weight would indicate. However, he is still raw and needs time to develop before he’ll be ready to make an impact. If he dedicates himself to improve the mental aspect of his game, he could develop into a starter two or three years down the road.
