Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BEN BRAUNECKER: Harvard, 6033 250 4.73. Three-year starter and team captain from Ferdinand, IN. Has a pair of hands as good as any tight end in the 2016 draft. Similar to fellow H-back alum Kyle Juszczyk of the Baltimore Ravens. A first-team All-Ivy choice and All-America. Lines up on and off the line of scrimmage, as a wing back, wide receiver, or a flex tight end. A versatile alignment athlete that the coaches can use as a match-up advantage. Graded out as the top tight end athletically at the Combine. Has soft dependable hands and good run after catch ability. A pre-med student who has good football intelligence. Sells out for a low poorly thrown ball. Not afraid to go over the middle of a defense and compete for the ball in a crowd. Plucks the ball at the highest point, doesn’t wait on the ball. Can adjust and shake a defender on the run. A solid backup who upgrades a “stop gap” reserve. Will contribute on special teams. Good upside based on skills and production. 2015 stats: 48-850, 17.7 ypr, 8 TD. OSR:1/10. Fourth/ fifth round. (A-32 3/4, H-9 1/2, BP-20, VJ-35.5).
