03/16/2013 - 2013 Kansas Pro Day: Safety Bradley McDougald shaved two-tenths of a second off his 40-yard dash time to highlight Friday's football pro timing day at Kansas University. McDougald, one of two KU players (offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson was the other) invited to the NFL cCombine last month in Indianapolis, ripped off a 4.49-second sprint in the area he focused on most since the combine and followed it up with a fluid showing in the on-the-field position drills that took place in front of representatives from 20 NFL teams. "That just kind of set the tone for the rest of the day," a pleased McDougald said. "It got that monkey off my back, let me take a deep breath and just go play football."
The bench was by far the loudest portion of the day, as the Jayhawks crowded around the last station in the southwest corner of the weight room and yelled and screamed for their teammates. KU strength coach Scott Holsopple spotted the exercise and also did a fair amount of screaming and encouraging. "I think that really helped a lot of guys," said McDougald, who also weighed five pounds less (210) than in Indianapolis. "It definitely helped me. Guys at the combine kind of cheer for you, but it's half-hearted. Here, guys are yelling, ???Let's go, let's go,' and you really feel like you gotta show up for guys you've been showing up with for years." - Matt Tait, The Lawrence Journal World

09/16/2012 - FS Bradley McDougald continues to lead Kansas in tackles after getting in on 12 stops in the Sept. 15 loss to TCU, including a sack. McDougald also forced two of the fumbles that contributed to four takeaways by the Jayhawks.
09/07/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: No way did Kansas suddenly establish itself as a dominant unit. It permitted 411 yards to South Dakota State, an FCS program, including a 99-yard touchdown run that exposed a lack of speed among the Jayhawks in the back end. Still, no one figured Kansas would make a massive turnaround in week one under new coordinator Dave Campo. It was completely overmatched a year ago when it allowed more points and more yards than any defense in the country. PLAYERS TO WATCH: FS Bradley McDougald -- After grabbing two of the four interceptions Kansas snatched in the opener, McDougald showed the potential to be one of the better defenders in the Big 12. Kansas coach Charlie Weis said the senior was as good as anyone on the Kansas squad. - The Sports Xchange
07/09/2012 - Top-five Kansas prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. FS Bradley McDougald (6-2, 215)...Another prospect who transitioned to a different position, McDougald bounced between receiver and safety over his first two seasons before settling in at safety last season as a junior. He was initially recruited as a safety and committed to nearby Ohio State out of high school, but surprisingly changed his mind and enrolled at Kansas (viewed Ohio State as too much of a "professional team"). McDougald started at receiver as a true freshman in 2009, recording 33 catches for 318 yards, before moving to safety towards the end of the season (five tackles). He again started as a wideout to begin the 2010 season (19 catches for 240 yards and one score), but moved to strong safety for the final two contests, starting both games. McDougald moved to the defensive side for good as a junior and started all 12 games at safety in 2011 as a junior, finishing second on the team with 90 tackles and a team-best two interceptions. A versatile defensive back, he has seen time at both free and strong safety, playing near the line of scrimmage and also in the deep half of the field. McDougald preferred to line up at wideout as an underclassman, but now that he is older (and much heavier, tipping the scale 25-pounds more than his sophomore season), he believes safety is where he projects best as a future pro. Now he just needs to continue to prove to scouts why he deserves a shot. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
