Draft Profile: Bio
Beau Brade from River Hill High School was rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 3-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Brade opted to join Maryland.

As a sophomore in 2021 he played in 10 games and logged 134 snaps for the Terrapins. He made just 8 tackles, 4 assists, and had 4 stops. In coverage he totaled no pass breakups, no interceptions, and QB rating when targetted of 104.2.

In 2022 as a junior Brade played in 12 games and contributed on 762 snaps. He chalked up solid 65 tackles, 17 assists, and added 23 stops. In the secondary Brade forced 4 pass breakups, 2 interceptions, and gave up QB rating when targetted of 74.3.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Takes accurate angles to the ballcarrier. A strong, aggressive tackler and doesn't back down against the run.
  • Straight-line speed to take a pick to the house. Can punish receivers with closing speed and desire to hit at max impact.
  • Great on route recognition and has click-and-close ability
  • His length and leaping ability allow him to high-point the ball and make plays. Brade would have had bigger interception numbers in college had opposing quarterbacks not gone out of their way to avoid him.
  • Is an explosive mover with quickness and speed. He’s at his best attacking downhill, shooting gaps in run support, and disrupting the backfield.
  • Has quick feet and excellent change-of-direction ability, capable of mirroring quickness underneath.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Gave up far too many big plays in college, especially concerning since Brade has recovery speed to make up for missteps.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • While he has man coverage skills, he can struggle when sitting back in zone. He’s not instinctive and struggles reading downfield routes and tracking the deep ball.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
