Brandin Hawthorne

Overview: An aggressive athlete who plays a physical game. Plays stand-up rush-end in high school so he will need work on his reads, pursuit skills, and work on playing in space. In addition, he has the skill set to be very good on special teams. He's an under-rated prospect and a good get for Michigan.

Strengths: He's a very good tackler who plays from whistle-to-whistle. He shows outstanding closing speed and pass rush skills. Moves his feet very well and rolls his hips through. He's improved his quickness and get-off.

Needs Work: Brandin needs to add weight and gain strength. Also, he needs to keep his shoulders parallel to the line of scrimmage and use his hands more effectively.
