Scout.com Player Spotlight: Nigel Bradham

This week's Scout.com player in the spotlight is Nigel Bradham. Here is the link to his Scout profile.

Here's Bradham's Bio from FSU:

One of the nation's most coveted recruits after earning Parade All-American honors...a consensus five-star prospect who starred at nearby Wakulla High School...finalist for the 2008 U.S. Army Player of the Year Award and played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl...earned first team 3A All-State honors and was the Tallahassee Democrat All-Big Bend Defensive Player of the Year...finished senior season with 145 tackles, eight sacks and four interceptions...recorded over 430 career tackles and 20 sacks in three seasons at Wakulla...entertained more than 40 scholarship offers and chose FSU over Georgia, Ole Miss and Florida...born September 4, 1989.

Last week, Bradham had this fantastic hit against the Terrapins:

Bradham had played poorly through the first five games. Undisciplined, and selfish, he took poor angles to the football, was too aggressive, and racked up stupid penalties.

But Bradham showed significant improvement last week, and the week before, according to Jimbo Fisher:

"The last two weeks I thought he's played as well as he's played since he's been here and he's doing it consistently. Doing the little things right, chasing the ball. I think he's really starting to play really good football."

Bradham's change of direction remains pretty poor due to his hips, but he still has excellent straight-line speed and when he plays with good leverage, he is powerful. 

N.C. State has a good tight end in George Bryan. It should be an interesting challenge.
