Brandon Deaderick
Round 7, Pick 247
Position: DT
Class: 5Sr
School: Alabama
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6-4
WT: 314
40 Time: 5.37
Biography: Three-year starter with totals of 22/4.5/1 as a senior after 36/5.5/4 the prior year.

Positives: Nice-sized defensive lineman with possibilities at tackle or as a two-gap end. Fires off the snap with a nice first step, fluid changing direction, and displays the ability to get to the flanks and make plays against ball-carriers. Effectively reads the action, plays with good lean, and works his hands throughout the action. Keeps his feet driving up the field and always on balance. Displays an array of moves and works hard to get off blocks.

Negatives: Lacks true bulk on the inside at defensive tackle. Marginal pass rusher and lacks speed up the field.

Analysis: Deaderick is a solid defensive line prospect who does the little things well. Not much of a playmaker, he's a lineman who occupies blockers and creates opportunities for those around him. Solid late-round prospect with the versatility to back up in a number of systems at the next level.

Projection: 4-5
