Braden Fiske, NT/DT, FSU

HT: 6’3
WT: 295 lbs


Second-team All-ACC (2023)

Second-team All-MAC (2022)



Quick off the snap in the pass rush, Fiske has violent hands and a good feel for working inside counter moves.

Fiske has heavy hands and uses them aggressively, rocking offensive linemen back. He shows the ability to disengage and out-grapple blockers in a phone booth.

He has an excellent feel for working off blockers and knowing how and when to counter as the play goes on.

Combines strength and footwork to fill holes inside, as well. Recovers from cut blocks or falling on his way to make a tackle.

Flashes quick hands to slap away blocks, but too oft~n gets caught in the hand-fighting at the line rather than quickly disengaging.

A high-motor pass rusher with good quickness, Fiske has a compact but wide frame and long arms.


Plays upright and struggles with leverage. Too often stonewalled at the line and doesn’t show the hand strength or technique to shed or redirect blockers.

Misses tackles, even when Fiske gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.

Fiske is a bit underpowered, often playing too high and struggling to hold the point of attack against double teams.
