4. Ben Bredeson, Michigan 6-5, 316 (3)
Why He’s Here On The List: He’s a good enough all-around blocker to be a steady NFL starter for a long time. There isn’t a big ceiling and there isn’t anything that screams All-Pro superstar, but he’s a relatively safe option who can pop.
What The NFL Types Want To See: He’s got to be quick, and he has to look like a decent athlete, even though that’s not his game. He’s going to look the part, and teams are going to want him for his variety of tools, but he has to be able to move.
Bottom Line: There’s nothing boring about infrastructure. He might not generate a ton of love from the fan base of the team that takes him, but he’ll be as reliable and dependable as they come. He might slide if scouts are looking for a shot for the stars.
