Braden Eggert is an offensive lineman who looks like a man among kids on the football field. At 6-8, 305-pounds Eggert is a very large player out of Napa High School in Nappa, California. Washington State head coach Mike Leach is recruiting Eggert to help complete the big, fast, and strong o-line that the Cougars are going after.
When watching Eggert’s film the first thing I noticed besides the extremely large size is his strength. With the ability to put the man across from him on his back and move on to the next level and do the same Eggert is going to be a monster on the field in college. At his size Eggert would go best as a tackle on either side.
Another thing I noticed when watching Eggert’s film is his determination. When he wasn’t able to get to his assignment he didn’t give up, he went directly on to the closest man to him and often times ended up way out in front of the play as a lead blocker.
Off the line Eggert is very quick and gets his hands up and under the d-lineman and makes sure to at least get a hand on the man across from him, often times knocking him off balance. Eggert’s hands and feet were very quick and didn’t stop moving throughout the whole play. To go along with the hands and feet Eggert is always keeping his head on a swivel watching out for another player to block.
