Ok --About Time-- I wonder how soon he will be able to help. Anyone think T-Mo might go to the Left and this guy learn on the right?

4.89 40 and 4.46 shuttle is not slow.

"Speed" for an OT basically means quickness out of his stance and first step or two laterally. Coastal Carolina ate him up. NFL edge rushers will be several levels above that.

Panthers selected BYU OT Brady Christensen with the No. 70 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Christensen (6’6/302) started for three years at BYU after first serving a two-year LDS mission to New Zealand. Last fall, he posted the best grade of any tackle in the PFF grading era, topping Penei Sewell’s 2019 campaign, and became BYU’s first consensus first-team All-American since Dennis Pitta in 2019. In a tick over 1,400 career pass-pro snaps, Christensen allowed only three sacks and two hurries, showing good technical acumen, with strong hands and soft feet working in concert. Christensen locks in and doesn’t let go in the run game, finishing with nastiness. He went on to stun the draft community by testing as a top-20 OT athlete of all-time at BYU’s pro day, per RAS. Christensen’s 10-foot, four-inch broad jump was the best ever recorded by an offensive lineman in Mockdraftable’s database by three inches. Christensen’s short arms -- measured at a sub-threshold 32 1/4 inches -- can lead to issues against long ends, which he didn’t see much of in Provo, and he gives away leverage when he starts playing too high. But as an athletic specimen that dominated non-Power 5 football, he reminds us a little bit of a shorter-armed Eric Fisher.
