Brandon Shell: 6’6” 324lbs
Brandon Shell is an NFL type Prospect with a 34 3/4″ arm length and 10 3/4″ hands. In the NFL combine he had one of the best broad jumps for offensive Tackles measuring 112” long. He also ran a 5.22 40yd dash. Over the past 4 years, Shell has been a solid OT starting all 47 games for the Gamecocks, he has broad shoulders and is a Kick and Slide lineman with an Anchor technique. He oftentimes stands flat-footed which in turn gives him trouble with the speed rush and linebacker blitzes. He is a classic example of a Heavy legged waist bender Lineman, he is very sluggish and slow reaction time off the snap. On drops back he stops moving his feet, most one on ones end in a draw instead of winning at the line of scrimmage. Does not have the feet nor the hand strength to become a starting left tackle in the NFL. Has all the components just not the technique, He would be a good project for an NFL line coach.
