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.
