Offensive linemen are strong. Really, really strong. If you don’t believe me, just watch this incredible display from Iowa tackle Brandon Scherff.
The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Scherff is heading into his senior season, and it’s clear that he means business in his final season of eligibility. Iowa strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle tweeted out this video of Scherff doing three hang clean reps at 443 pounds.
Take a look.
Scherff’s prowess in the weight room is no secret. He put up 410 pounds in the hang clean last summer and the thought that he’s even stronger heading into 2014 has to be a frightening prospect for defensive ends around the Big Ten.
That brute size and strength is part of why Scherff is being considered a top prospect for the 2015 NFL Draft. He had an extremely productive 2013 campaign on the field, too. He started all 13 games for the Hawkeyes at left tackle, earning first team All-Big Ten honors from the league’s coaches.
Scherff was a three-star recruit out of Denison, Iowa in 2010, and could potentially be the fourth Iowa lineman to be picked in the first round in the last ten years.
