2016 NFL Scouting Notes: Brandon Shell, RT, South Carolina

2016 NFL Scouting Notes: Brandon Shell, RT, South Carolina
By Lijah Spencer (@tweaked74) 

Tonight’s edition of scouting notes brings us to the nephew of one of the most revered Hall Of Fame Lineman in NFL history, Art Shell. Brandon Shell has started in 36 of 39 games in his career, here are my notes:

Brandon Shell. 6’6. 327 lbs. RT. South Carolina

The Positives

1) Uses good footwork

2) Good use of hands, good punch block

3) Plays with high effort

4) Decent flexibility and hips

The Negatives

1) Will miss most of spring practices after having shoulder surgery 

Brandon Shell is a right tackle who uses good footwork to get in position to make his block, and he uses his hands very well at the point of attack. His flexibility and hips are fairly good for a player of his size. He has started 36 of 39 career games at South Carolina, and is expected to recover fully from shoulder surgery this summer. He is the nephew of HOF offensive lineman Art Shell, and like Art he plays with high effort at all times. He is currently ranked as the #4 tackle in the country, and if he stays healthy he will be a highly sought after player in next years NFL draft.

Shannon Sharpe says Antonio Gates cheated the game

Is Shannon Sharpe wrong for his comments?

Is Shannon Sharpe wrong for his comments?

Former Denver Broncos tight end Shannon Sharpe is a very vocal individual, but what he said today in an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio with Bob Papa and Vic Carucci may be going a bit overboard. Sharpe said that he isn’t buying the latest explanation from a player that they accidentally took a banned substance and that he thinks Gates “cheated the game.”

“It calls into question everything that he’s ever accomplished,” Sharpe said. “If he does it at the beginning of his career because he was an undrafted free agent, people are gonna say he did it to get in the league. Now he did it Year 13, Year 14 — People are going to say he did it to remain in the league. It does, it makes you question everything someone has ever accomplished.”

What do you think? Is Shannon wrong for his comments?

Bills draft pick defends his former teammate on twitter before deleting the messages

Is Ronald Darby right?

Is Ronald Darby right?

De’Andre Johnson was kicked off the Florida State Seminoles football team, and his former teammate Ronald Darby took to twitter to defend his teammate. He quickly changed his views and deleted some messages but the photos and tweets were already captured. 

@realronaldDarby

“What I want to know is whats happening to the girl that clearly hit De’andre first? It’s never right to hit a girl at all”
” But they have to get some kind of consequence as well . Yall can’t keep letting females provoke guys in all ways then walk free. Like ?”

” @sioux_bills im speaking the truth I said nothing wrong #advice . That’s what’s wrong now . Not enough talking. Kid career could be done .”

” @BigSwerve5150 yes he grabbed her to not get hit. You can see he fist balled up to hit him but it’s still wrong on his behalf but it’s idk”

” @g_miller_ yea that’s true I just hate to see stuff like that at the end of the day . He worked his life to get where he at .But lord bless”

” People saying its a bad tweet for saying something should be done both ways ? I’m confused . If that was tall kid or loved one then what”

What do you think? Was Darby wrong?
