Brandon Shell   #72 OT

Height: 6-5   Weight: 324   Age: 27

Born: 2/6/1992 Goose Creek , SC

College: South Carolina

Experience: 4th season

High School: Goose Creek HS [SC]





Draft 2016

Pick No.158

Selected By: New York Jets

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 21 (158)

Pick Analysis: Yes, Brandon is the great nephew of Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Shell. But it wouldn't matter if he was instead a relative of early television-era star Art Carney ... he simply looks like an NFL tackle with a pro build and long limbs. He may be best at right tackle, a spot which he held down for three years, but he did flash athleticism to pass protect on the left side when he took over the blind side spot as a senior. Either way, if you want a strong run blocker (he will take smaller defenders 10 yards downfield once locked on) who can reach second-level defenders as well, then Shell's your man.
