2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Brandon Bair, DE, Oregon

Brandon Bair started off his collegiate career at tight end, but was quickly moved to the defensive line while redshirting in 2006. He picked up the tackle position quite well, but still failed to crack the starting lineup as an underclassman. It was in 2008 when Bair moved from the outside of the defensive line to the inside. He played quite well at both spots in a reserve role and was ready to take over a starting gig in 2009.

Bair was a staple on the defensive line during his junior campaign and led all Oregon linemen with 45 tackles. Bair was also a very productive player on special teams and proved to be in great condition since he took part in so many plays. In 2010 it was the Ducks offense that got all the credit, but Bair led a surprisingly productive defense. Bair totaled an impressive 47 tackles, including 16.0 tackles-for-loss and 3.0 sacks. Bair also used his long 6-6 frame to break up eight passes.

Bair would probably be a mid-round selection if he had a definitive position in the NFL. He has good quickness and strength, but he does not seem to have enough speed to play on the end in the NFL or enough strength to play at defensive tackle. He is also 26 years old and that has some teams backing away from a player who may need some time to turn into a productive end or tackle.
