Prospect Profile: Brandon Harston

Brandon Harston School: Minnesota
Ht: 6-1.5 Wt: 301 40: 5.21 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Formerly a defensive tackle who moved to the other side of the line prior to his junior campaign and became a fulltime starter in '04.

Positives: Patient, yet nasty blocker strong at the point of attack. Stays square, blocks down on opponents or moves defenders off the line. Stays with the action bending his knees and working to finish the play. Quick off the snap and out to the second level. Jolts opponents at the point with his hands.

Negatives: Stiff, lacks adjustment and cannot redirect to linebackers on the second level. Not light on his feet and marginal skills in motion.

Analysis: Slowly developing into a solid prospect, Harston offers the strength and body-build to play at the next level. Needs time, repetition and must smooth out the rough edges to his game, yet a solid developmental prospect for the practice squad.
