Draft Profile: Bio
Braiden McGregor from Port Huron Northern High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, McGregor joined Michigan after being heavily recruited.

In 2021 as a freshman McGregor saw action in 9 games and played a total of 62 snaps for the Wolverines. He recorded just 6 tackles, one assist, while adding 5 stops. As a pass rusher, he added 5 total pressures, which included 3 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and no sacks on the season.

As a sophomore for the Wolverines in 2022 McGregor played in 13 games and took part in 200 snaps for the Wolverines. He recorded 10 tackles, 2 assists, while adding 10 stops. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 10 total pressures, and 7 QB hurries, no QB hits, and 3 sacks during the year.

In 2023 as a junior McGregor played in 14 games and contributed on 378 snaps. He recorded 19 tackles, 5 assists while making 19 stops. As a pass rusher, he produced 27 total pressures, which included 17 QB hurries, 5 QB hits, and 5 sacks on the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • McGregor has electrifying change-of-direction skills and also the length and upper-body strength to discard blockers on the way.
  • He's not an elite pass rusher and projects as a left end in a 4-3 defense. If McGregor layers on more muscle, he might fit in the 3-4. Size, strength and versatility should push him into the top 75 picks.
  • Possesses the length and power to ward off offensive tackles.
  • He’s a high-effort pass rusher with an impressive combination of length and speed.
  • Tremendous explosion; accelerates low with power. Relentless blindside pursuit; tracks down ballcarriers across the field.
  • Naturally explosive player with decent get-off speed. Balanced through contact and stout against double-teams. Tackles through the ball. Versatile and has the body type to play many roles.
  • McGregor has the classic frame and long arms with some explosion, power and ability to close.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
  • His spin move is a bit slow and mechanical. He’s susceptible to cut blocks, a tactic that was used on him often
  • McGregor also shows some stiffness when trying to bend the edge, often getting pushed past the pocket — McGregor seems more comfortable countering back inside.

*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.
