Brandon Siler LB 6'2 241 Florida Jr. 4.67

By: Robert Davis

Siler burst on to the national scene as a true freshman, earning SEC Frosh of the Year honors in 2004. He had 77 tackles, 10 for loss, and two sacks on the year. As a sophomore, he had 64/10/5 on the year. Siler had another standout season as a junior, where he finished with 77 tackles, 10 for loss, and three sacks on the year.

Brandon Siler is a very good linebacker prospect. He has the talent and versatility to play inside or out. He is tough, and at best moving forward to stop the run. He is not afraid to take on a bigger lineman and sift through the trash to find the ball carrier. He shows the range to cover runs to the outside and prevent the back from breaking off big runs. Siler is a hard worker and could develop into a team leader at the next level.

While he may be able to play strong side in the NFL, he may lack the ideal athleticism to play outside on a consistent basis. He doesnít shown the consistency in coverage to be counted on in space. As an inside linebacker, he may need a few more pounds to hold up at the point against stronger lineman.

Siler could project inside or out, but is a better fit inside He will not blow you away with his speed or athleticism, but he will stop the run, and make plays up and down the line of scrimmage on a game to game basis. He appears to have solidified himself on Day One, and could potentially land in the second round.
