Brady Christensen 2021 NFL Draft Player Profile
BYU quarterback Zach Wilson flashed high potential this past season thanks to help from his offensive line, led by tackle Brady Christensen. Christensen showed great talent to play the tackle position and handle defensive linemen while in college. Unfortunately for him, some have said it’s due to the level of competition he faced in college. This is a common misinterpretation for an offensive lineman who has to endure a greater climb than some of his draftmates due to where he comes from.
That’s not the case for Christensen. Before coming to BYU, he was a two-star recruit. Additionally, he also embarked on a mission to New Zealand. How does that help his case? For starters, after becoming a Cougar, he played like one. In his sophomore reason, he started all 13 games. This past season, this former two-star recruit allowed Wilson to play like a top-five selection in a high-powered offense. That alone, coupled with the fact that he protected the blindside as the left tackle, should entice teams. The Associated Press also voted him to a first-team All-American status. Christen recorded a broad jump of 10 feet four inches at his Pro-Day, the most of any offensive lineman in history.
