  • Gets handsy at times

Overall

Brandon Facyson is a big corner who utilizes his length to his advantage, using his long arms to break up passes without interfering. He has good footwork and is able to stay in the hip pocket of wide receivers. With his injury history and his pursuit of medicine, what are his long-term goals? Right now, whether he’s committed to football moving forward is a mystery, but if he does he has the talent and skills to be a 3rd round pick.
