Overview

While the BYU offense is often characterized as a pass-heavy attack based on the success of junior quarterback Max Hall, the Cougars had the components to be one of the nation's elite inside running teams. Much of the credit is due right guard Travis Bright. Bright has the lateral quickness to hold up in the passing game, but his size and explosive upper-body strength are the characteristics that intrigue NFL scouts. Bright also showed the toughness required to make the transition to the NFL by making it back in time to start for his third season at guard, after suffering a broken leg in the bowl victory over UCLA in January of 2008.

Analysis

Positives: Naturally large man with little extra weight around the middle. ... At least adequate initial quickness off the snap. ... Good initial punch to stun the defender and can latch on to sustain. ... Powerful run blocker; can generate movement. ... Aggressive and looks to help teammates if he's not covered and will pancake unsuspecting defenders. ... Rare weight-room strength; 540-pound bench press. ... Team captain. Negatives: Lacks the athleticism to block on the move. ... Lumbers off the line of scrimmage and struggles to break down and hit the moving target. ... Plays high, negating his strength as a pass blocker. ... Relies on his strength and size as a pass blocker and struggles to recover if beaten initially with quickness. ... Medical check on broken leg (which required the insertion of a rod for stabilization) from 07-08 bowl game.
