2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about Brandon Linder: Miami, 6055 311 5.35. Three-year starter with five starts as a freshman. Plays right guard. Experience at both guard and tackle. Good thickness, arm reach, and wing span for the guard position. Good foot mobility and athletic agility when pulling and blocking on the second level. Good timing and hand placement with punch in pass protection. Struggled with speed and quick counter moves when outside at tackle. At times will lunge and overextend as a run blocker. More of a run blocking mauler at times than a technician. Good awareness on blitz pickups to wall off a linebacker or strong safety. Has tools and toughness to make a team, but must clean up inconsistencies in technique. Should start out as a solid backup with the ability to start with pro physical development. Senior Bowl notes: experience at both guard and tackle, but worked at right guard which is his best NFL position. Adequate run and pass anchor for a guard. Functional foot mobility and athletic agility. Problems with speed and quick counter move pass rushers. Showed ability to pull and find target on the move. OSR:24/40. Fourth/ fifth round. (A-34 1/2, H-10 1/4, BP-30, 10-1.90).
