Bio: 
Two-year starter who started his Aztecs career on the offensive line before moving to tight end for three seasons and returning to the line at right tackle for his senior year, when he earned Second Team All-Mountain West honors. Named Honorable Mention All-Mountain West as a junior tight end, catching 10 passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns. Made four starts in 2014 and had five receptions for 31 yards and one score.
Pos: 
Former tight end who moved to offensive tackle as a senior and showed consistent progress in his game. Athletic, slides off the edge and displays solid lateral blocking range. Gets his hands into defenders, adjusts to oncoming pass rushers and knocks them from their angles of attack. Stays square, keeps the defender in front of him and turns opponents from the action. Keeps his head on a swivel, keeps his feet moving and keeps his hands active. Explosive at the point and plays through the whistle.
Neg: 
Must make better use of angles. Does not sink his butt at the line of scrimmage. Rarely finishes blocks.
Analysis: 
Brunskill is an athletic prospect with size and growth potential as well as upside. He still needs work on his game but could develop into a backup tackle that sees action as a sixth offensive lineman in short-yardage situations.
