Brandon Aiyuk 2020 NFL Draft Profile
Measureables: 6’1″ 210 LBs
ELECTRIC. That is the only word to use when describing Aiyuk. Herm Edwards must have the biggest grin on his face watching this kid practice and play. This kid has a game changing moment locked and loaded every play. Can take a slant the distance like Odell. Can smoke corners on a sluggo route. He will out jump or win the hands battle with larger safeties and corners. Turns into a maniac after the catch. Clutch factor is undeniable. He wants the ball at all times. Can play inside, outside, return, and would even play safety if you asked him. He’s just a baller. He could definitely be the Michael Thomas of his class and go from a second round pick to arguably the best WR in his draft class. Aiyuk started at JUCO college Sierra State. Brandon finished his junior college career with 2,499 all-purpose yards and 21 touchdowns before transfering to ASU.
