Exhibits a good initial first step out of his stance from the gun as well. Is accurate from the gun and quickly is able to set, keep his base down and does a nice job extending his arms and generating a pop at the point. Works well in tandem inside with his guards and can naturally slide his feet through contact and has some mirror ability in space. Is an above-average short-area athlete with the ability to sit into his stance and generate leverage for himself when asked to anchor. Now, will get a bit overextend into blocks on his punch, which causes him to fall off blocks at times. But, keeps his head on a swivel and does a solid job picking up stunts/blitzes and keeping the inside of the pocket clean.
Impression: Possesses above-average athleticism and knows how to generate leverage for himself with good hand placement in both the run and pass game. However, is really short armed and doesn't look like a draftable guy."
Positive: Undersized yet explosive blocker on the pivot quick in all his actions. Jolts opponents at the point of attack, quick if asked to pull across the line of scrimmage, and explodes into defenders. Stays square, displays the ability to slide in space, and is effective as a position blocker.
Negative: Lacks size, bulk, and football strength. Gets minimal movement run blocking and cannot open up the middle of the field.
Analysis: Brignone has been a consistent player on the college level yet lacks the size and growth potential to be anything other than a backup in the NFL. His ability to block in motion will get him consideration from zone blocking teams."
Negatives: Inconsistent lateral mobility... Not very strong, can be pushed off the ball and walked back into pocket... Doesn't possess good power... Doesn't break down especially well on the move... More of an obstacle in space than blocker... Will overextend to compensate for short arms."
Strengths: Gets adequate hand placement and set quickly. Does play with a wide base and can hold ground working against most bull rushers. Makes all of the line calls and appears to make accurate pre-snap reads but inconsistent after the snap
Weaknesses: Could do a better job of sinking hips and is somewhat top-heavy and vulnerable to push-pull moves. Weak lateral mobility and vulnerable to double moves. Not a dominant drive blocker; drives legs once in position, doesn't always use good leverage and doesn't show great lower-body strength at the point of attack.
Projection: 7th round."
