Brandon SpikesHt/Wt: 6-3/243 lbs
Brandon Spikes Player ProfileScouts have had their sights set on the senior linebacker since he exploded onto the scene as a sophomore earning First Team All-SEC recognition. For an encore he added First Team All-American to his resume the following year.
His senior season has been clouded by the “eye-gouging” incident against Georgia. While that may discourage some NFL teams from picking him higher we don’t think it should be held against him too much. Ask any NFL, or even D-II college football player what goes on at the bottom of a scrum and this isn’t too surprising.
Spikes has prototypical middle linebacker size and can light up running backs with the best of them. The biggest factor keeping him out of the Top 10 or even comparisons to 49ers LB Patrick Willis is his speed. Should he time well at the combine look out for him to jump 5-10 spots.
