Player Spotlight: LB Brandon Maye, Mississippi State

By Joe Everett on Tuesday, 14th February 2012

brandonmayeBrandon Maye has been a regular on the college football scene for the last four years, as he was a three year starter at Clemson and then started for the Bulldogs this season after graduating early with a degree in sociology. Brandon did not lose any eligibility and was able to play for Mississippi State in a very similar situation to Russell Wilson and Wisconsin.

Maye has benefited from playing in a variety of pro-style defenses that utilize NFL terminology and his ability to play all of the linebacker positions makes him an extremely appealing draft pick for some of these hybrid defenses we see at the next level. Brandon had a lot of success this year as an edge rusher in the Mississippi State defense, only his first year playing off the edge.

He has a clear passion for the game that shines through when he’s on the field like a fire that is very reminiscent of his mentor, Ravens’ LB Ray Lewis, who Brandon speaks with regularly. The future Hall of Famer is already sharing tricks of the trade and linebacker tips that are sure to give Maye a leg up.

Maye also addressed the hard hitting topics, like his current ankle injury and his decision to leave Clemson for Mississippi State as well as his success in 2011 pressuring the quarterback for the Bulldogs. He takes us into the game with his unique perspective and tremendous understanding of defense.

Brandon Maye will be playing at the next level and it’s just a question of what team at this point but he’s certainly one of this year’s true sleepers that will be flying under the radar come draft day.
