NFL DraftProspect Interviews

Interview with a Small School Hero: Brandon Shed, WR, Hobart College

Brandon Shed is a Division 3 prospect you better prepare for. He is not a push over, to be honest he should be on a D1 team somewhere. How he ended up at a Division 3 school blows my mind, but Hobart the school of Ali Marpet was able to see something in the 6’4 wide receiver that every other college in the country didn’t.

Shed is new to his position but he has blossomed to one of the best wide receivers in all of college football.  The West Palm Beach native took his talents to New York, and it has paid off dividends.  He enters his final year with 27 receiving touchdowns and over 2200 yards receiving.  His numbers continue to grow, and I expect him to have a monstrous season this year.

Hobart shocked the world when Ali Marpet was drafted making him the highest D3 player ever drafted, by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but do not be shocked again.  Brandon Shed has the ability to play at the next level. I would not be surprised to see Shed’s name called as well.  Here is our pre-season draft interview with a small school hero:

What is your main goal going into your final season?

To win a national championship

As a small schooler, how are you planning to separate yourself from the other big school players?

To focus more on the little things like getting to the right route depth etc.

Who is the toughest player on the opposite side of the ball you have to face in practice?

I have to say Tommy D’Antonio! He’s a tough guy. Never takes a play off even in walkthroughs

Who is the most underrated player on your team?

John John our Left Tackle. I never seen a guy lay people out the way he does.

What’s your best memory of college so far?

Jack Pfohl’s game winning TD catch against WPI

What is the most memorable play so far in your career?

My one had catch against SLU my sophomore year

What is the coolest thing you ever did off the field for someone else?

When I come home I give away some of my gear from last season to little kids back home

Why did you pick your current number?

They gave it to me

If an NFL GM was reading this (Which they do), how would you sell yourself in a couple sentences? 

I’m a hard worker. Still learning how to play this position so the sky is the limit once I master my position.
