2023 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about ANTHONY BRADFORD:
LSU | H: 6050 W: 345 40: 5.02 A: 3312 H: 0912 W: 8038
Two-year starter, Muskegon, MI. Saw time at both tackle and guard but the skill set will keep him inside at the next level. Bradford did not get as much experience under his belt in college as many others. He was on the field for just over 1,000 snaps over his four years with the Tigers. Taking that out of the equation, he presents starter-caliber upside based solely on his size and power. He is thick in the right places and can drive block defenders, both first and second level, down the field in the running game. Power schemes will view him as a weapon worth developing for a year or two. Any issues that show up as a pass protector can be corrected with more attention on his techniques and a stronger understanding of the game. Tremendous lower half when considering thickness. Tree stump thighs and powerful hips that he can fully engage. Takes proper first steps as a run blocker to maximize angles and his size advantage. Heavyweight boxer handwork that can stand a man up. A hard guy to simply get around in one-on-one pass rush battles. Stays within himself, rarely overextends. Athletic limitations will get exposed from time to time. Needs to get more depth in pass sets. Hand striking and overall placement is inconsistent. Adjustments to lateral movement are lethargic. Has the kind of presence that can be an enormous difference maker inside for a power scheme but needs time to refine and improve his footwork.
OSR:6/37. 5th/6th round.
