Brett Brackett - TE - Penn State

By Joe Everett on Thursday, 28th April 2011

brett-brackettBrackett is a thick build type of wide receiver that will likely transition well into the tight end position because of his ideal height, natural strength and consistently good hands.

He has the ability to beat out defenders in jump ball situations and also pose mismatches with his length and size.

Brackett has less than ideal speed, even for the tight end position but it’s his blocking and ability to hold up in the running game that are the biggest question marks in his game.  While he gets after his opponent in the running game on the outside, he’ll be going against linebackers and defensive ends at the next level so he might be in a situational role to start out.

He has the ability to pick up enough to be successful because he’s got great football intelligence and he’s an extremely had worker.

Brackett has a tough road ahead in making a position change but there’s a lot to like about this prospect, as he’s extremely bright and really embraced a leadership role for the Nittany Lions in 2010.  He’s a high character type that might have a chance to stick on a roster with his attitude and tenacious play on the field.
