Bruce Campbell (born May 25, 1988) is an American football offensive tackle for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He played college football at Maryland.
Campbell originally attended Hyde Leadership School in New Haven, Connecticut, where he was a four-year letterwinner and never missed a game during his career. He played defensive end all four years and started at that spot and offensive tackle his last two years. Campbell had 50 tackles, including 4.5 quarterback sacks, while blocking two PATs and one punt as a junior, and recorded 70 tackles, including six sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery his senior season in 2005. He subsequently earned PrepStar All-American honors.
Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Campbell was ranked as the No. 17 offensive tackle prospect in 2006. He chose Maryland over Michigan State, Nebraska, and Virginia. However, before enrolling at Maryland, Campbell spent a preparation year at Hargrave Military Academy.
Campbell played in all 13 games in 2008, and saw action as a reserve at left tackle in the first six contests before starting at that spot the last seven. He was part of an offensive line that enabled Da'Rel Scott (1,133) to become the seventh Terp back, and first since Chris Downs in 2002, to gain over 1,000 rushing yards. In week 7 of the season, Campbell earned ACC Lineman of the Week honors for his performance against Wake Forest.

Campbell was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft, despite many draft analysts, such as Mel Kiper and Scott Wright, who thought he would be selected in the top 10. He was reunited with former Maryland teammate Darrius Heyward-Bey. Before training camp started former head coach Tom Cable moved Campbell inside to play right guard on the Raiders' offensive line. On July 21, 2011, Campbell confirmed that he would be moving back outside to play his native position offensive tackle on the Raiders' offensive line under former head coach Hue Jackson's power blocking scheme.
