Final Grade

6.82

Brandon has athleticism as he plays with speed, smooth footwork, and can be agile. Joseph is solid in zone coverage and has the ability to recover quickly when he makes mistakes. Joseph has strong hip fluidity when he changes directions in coverage. Joseph can be a playmaker as he is quick to react on a play and is a solid blitzer. He has great hands as he can catch interceptions. He takes solid pursuit angles when he is making tackles and has some range. Brandon can play with a lot of aggression and can be very confident. It shows how he can recognize a play easily and communicate on defense as a leader. He has position versatility as he has played snaps as well at cornerback.

Weaknessess

Brandon needs to improve on his flexibility, balance, and strength. He has to do better with man to man coverage and be quicker to recover when he makes mistakes. He could improve his ball skills when deflecting passes. Joseph has to be more physical when engaging with blocks, and often gets dominated by them. He must have a better technique when making tackles as he has a habit of not wrapping defenders. He has to be more consistent with getting to the high point.

Durability could be an issue as he dealt with a constant ankle injury through the 2022 Season. There is a lot to like about Brandon Joseph, but there is still plenty of work that he needs to do in order to fix his weaknesses. As of now I see him as a late 2nd/early 3rd round prospect.
