Bradford a tasmanian devil down in San Diego

Two-year varsity defensive lineman Jaquille Bradford of Hoover-San Diego is a feisty one down in the 619.

He's not your ideal defensive lineman at nearly 5-foot-11, 230-pounds. But he's a wild man on the front line for Hoover. The 2015 prospect is currently the state leader in sacks with 20 according to Max Preps.

Bradford uses an array of moves from the bull rush, to the rip move all the way to a spin move. I've been most impressed with his explosion through holes when disrupting a play. Bradford attacks gaps with freakish quickness. The junior currently runs a 4.45 40-yard dash. He uses his speed to his advantage with chasing down ball carriers and getting around offensive tackles. He's also shown to have power with taking on double teams.

Size is obviously a drawback. He can also rely more on a swim or rip move instead of a bull rush for the time being, since he's not big enough to overpower every offensive lineman. However, this could be a future Dwight Freeney or Elvis Dumervil for a future school with his size and pass rushing.
