Scouting Report on Brendan Bigelow

by Barry Every - 09/23/2010
  • SpeedAs Good As It Gets
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • ElusivenessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: His most prominent feature is his massive, muscular legs and powerbase. His build is similar to USC freshman D.J. Morgan.
Needs Improvement: He could add upper-body size, which should improve his production between the tackles. The most obvious area of improvement will be the rehabilitation of his knee and the fact that he missed more than one full year of football.
Most Impressive: This is one of the fastest football players in the country and he is a threat to score from anywhere. He also has nice body control and above-average hands.
Conclusion: He is a definite redshirt candidate due to his injury. If he can eventually get back to form expect him to wreak havoc on defenses across America.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
