Brigham Young's Braden Hansen is an offensive lineman prospect heading into the NFL draft. Hansen is a versatile guard who will look to have his name called by Saturday afternoon.
Teams will be impressed by Hansen's maturity and ability to play on either side of the offensive line. He has played both guard positions and center during his time with the Cougars.
Hansen was a four-year starter at BYU, making it conceivable he could make an impact in his rookie season, despite being a late-round pick. Normally, offensive linemen taken in later rounds are selected for developmental purposes. Hansen could potentially be the exception to this rule.
Experience and awareness are qualities that scouts covet this time of year. Hansen is exceptionally equipped with these attributes, which makes him an intriguing prospect.
