Strong Points: Very athletic for the position. Quick off the ball -- snaps and steps. Effective in getting to the second level. Makes angle blocks and can turn and seal his opponents. Sets quickly in pass pro and has quick hands, a strong punch and keeps his hands inside. Plays with bend and balance. Aware and effective picking up stunts and blitzes. Played and started all games at guard in 2016.
Weak Points: Does not always play to his size and strength (34 reps). Though he can bend, he will give ground at times to bull rushers. His arms are on the short side (31 ¾") but OK for the interior. Must play with more strength in both his upper and lower body.
The Way We See It: A three-year starter, Bradbury was a tight end in high school and his redshirt season before moving to guard and then center. He has adequate size and very good weight-room strength but needs to show more functional strength on the field. He is athletic enough to play guard, and that valuable versatility will be an asset at the next level. With his athleticism and movement skills, he is best suited to play in a zone scheme. He has a strong chance to step in and play right away as a rookie if he can develop more play strength. Comps for Bradbury include former Bears great Olin Kruetz and Eagles All Pro Jason Kelce, both of whom went later in the draft than where Bradbury will be selected.
