2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Brandon Easterling, S, Dayton

Brandon Eatersling has great size, and speed for an FCS defender.

By: Brandon Gubitosa

The 6-foot, 203 pound safety out of Fairborn, Ohio finished fourth among FCS defenders in tackles with 140 in 2019. Brandon Easterling led all FCS defenders with 82 solo tackles and 7.5 solo tackles per game. His monster junior season landed him a spot on the AP All-American First Team squad.

The turn-over machine forced nine turnovers in 2019. His six interceptions and three forced fumble recoveries led all FCS defenders. Last season against Duquesne, Easterling racked up a career high 19 tackles. Later on in the year Easterling picked Drake’s signal caller three times, including a NCAA Record-tying 100-yard touchdown return.

The former All-Ohio player has what it takes to play on Sundays in the NFL. He is a ball hawk and is constantly causing nightmares to opposing quarterbacks. He is one of the top defenders in all of the FCS, and will have all eyes on him in Dayton this upcoming season.

Scouting Notes:

Brandon Easterling is a hard hitting safety with big play making ability. After watching tape of Adam Trautman, Easterling jumped off the film. He is a bigger safety with range and good hands. He takes great angles on his tackles and is not afraid to lower his head. Easterling will have scouts attention in 2021. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
