Draft Scout Brandon Scherff News
02/17/15 - 2015 DRAFT SCOUT PRE-COMBINE TOP 64 DRAFT PROSPECTS: 6/1. Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa, 6-5, 320, 4.93, 1...The only thing scouts agree about on Scherff is that he is the most NFL-ready offensive lineman in the draft. The debate is whether he should use his broad-shoulders and toughness at guard, where he played as a freshman, or show his excellent technique at tackle, where he lined up on the left side the rest of his college career and was named consensus All-American and earned the Outland Trophy last season as the best college lineman. Those who believe he belongs inside are probably concerned that he doesn't have quick footwork required against the NFL's outside pass rushers, an issue not helped a broken fibula and dislocated ankle as a sophomore.
Scherff first nurtured confusion about where to play him way back at Dennison (Iowa) High School where his football career included 1,200 yards passing as a sophomore; 200 yards and five touchdowns receiving as a junior and then, playing both sides of the line, led the team in tackling and blocking. Scherff also starred in baseball, tennis and was the state shot put champion as a sophomore. So at least the NFL has narrowed it down to one sport. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
02/16/15 - 2015 NFL COMBINE: PROSPECTS WITH THE MOST TO GAIN OR LOSE, VERIFIED MEASUREMENTS: OL Brandon Scherff, Iowa...The Hawkeyes' left tackle has a skill set ideally suited to bump inside to guard, similar to Zack Martin a year ago. And if Scherff's arms measure under 33 inches, that might confirm it for several teams. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
08/08/14 - 2014 BIG TEN FOOTBALL PRESEASON PLAYERS TO WATCH (MEDIA): Brandon Scherff, OL, Iowa...Scherff, a 6-foot-5, 320-pound senior offensive lineman, started all 13 games at left tackle a year ago. Scherff was the recipient of the team's Roy. J. Carver Offensive Most Valuable Player and Team Hustle awards last season. Scherff was also added to the 2014 Outland Trophy preseason Watch List. - Iowa football
08/06/14 - Ranking the Top 20 'Freaks' in college football for 2014: 2. Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa Hawkeyes...A year ago, Scherff hang-cleaned 410 pounds three times: He recently topped that by hang-cleaning 437 pounds for two reps, and he's come close to a third, Doyle said. He can Jerk 400 pounds over his head, vertical jump 31 or 32 inches and run his first 10 yards in 1.58 to 1.60 seconds, according to the coach. (For comparison's sake on the 10-yard split, Auburn star Greg Robinson clocked a 1.68 at the NFL Combine while Michigan's Taylor Lewan --an old Freaks list guy -- timed his in 1.64, and he ran the fastest 40 among O-linemen in Indy officially at 4.87.) "He's just super powerful in his hips and lower body," said Doyle, who added that Scherff has packed on 10 more pounds this offseason, now up to 325. "He's extremely gifted genetically, and he's such a great kid to work with because he's as competitive as any kid you'll ever be around and he's extremely positive." - Bruce Feldman, FOX Sports
08/06/14 - Ranking the Top 20 'Freaks' in college football for 2014: 2. Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa Hawkeyes...The latest in Kirk Ferentz's terrific pipeline of elite O-linemen, Scherff is a 6-5, 325-pound left tackle with an uncanny knack for excelling in pretty much everything he attempts. According to Hawkeyes staff, Iowa began heavily recruiting Scherff when he was a 280-pound quarterback. He also, despite his enormous size, was a standout pitcher who threw in the mid-80s and had a nasty breaking ball; a basketball player, who averaged a double-double; and a varsity letter-winning tennis player, in addition to being a state champion shot putter. But Scherff isn't just one of those rare athletes who has the dexterity to excel at everything he does -- he also has the freak-wiring in his genes as well.
Chris Doyle, Iowa's strength coach the past 16 seasons, has worked with everyone from Hawkeye first-round linemen Robert Gallery and Bryan Bulaga to three-time All-Pro Marshal Yanda. "In terms of pure explosiveness, (Scherff) is the best we've ever had," Doyle said. "He's in a league of his own." That really is a mouthful, when you consider that Gallery ran in the 4.8s at the combine and vertical jumped 30 inches despite weighing 323 pounds before becoming the second overall pick in 2004. - Bruce Feldman, FOX Sports
