Round 6, Pick 211: Brady Christensen, OT, BYU
Not a great prospect, as he’ll be 25 years old at the start of the season, but Brady Christensen has great measurables. With linemen, 40-yard dashes are like measuring a first basemen’s long jump; there’s no point. The dash is a speed measurement, with linemen, you want quickness measurements. According to SI, he’s a beast everywhere it counts.
His 10 and 20-yard splits are considered to be elite, and his shuttle and cone drills are among the top of any offensive tackle in the draft class.
The Draft Network describes his ideal role as a backup swing tackle, in a run-first offensive scheme. Considering the need to cut salary for 2022, and the fact that the Browns’ very own swing tackle, Chris Hubbard, will more than likely not be brought back in 2022 due to cap concerns, makes Christensen an ideal prospect to come in.
He played left tackle for BYU and protected Zach Wilson’s blindside, and at 6’6, with a 300lb frame and a 4.9 40-yard dash, could be an excellent pulling guard if called upon.
