2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JAKE BRENDEL: UCLA, 6041 303 5.03. Four-year starter and team co-captain from Plano, TX. Has good athletic ability and the versatility to play a pulling guard. Has a quick first step to reach and seal front side penetration. Good awareness to fold and seal linebackers to create inside running lanes. Played in a spread offense for the Bruins where he basically positioned and walled off the down or penetrating defender. Plays a little high without knee bend despite his good lower body flexibility. Slender lower body which hinders him as an anchor. Has good triangle numbers for the center position and good foot agility. Good change of direction and weight transfer. Adjusts well in space when blocking a linebacker in the run game or blocking one-on-one in pass protection. Good body control and balance recovery. Not an explosive player but has solid upper body playing strength. He sets quickly in pass protection, has quick feet to slide and shuffle. Can deal with a speed or bull rush and handle inside moves. Not a waist bender. Smart and instinctive. As with all college linemen heading into the NFL he can use more core strength. OSR:5/47. Fifth/sixth round. (A-31 5/8, H-9, BP-25, 10-1.72).
