Michael Brockers, DL, LSU
Grade: 7.8 (Grading Scale)
Film Room Notes: vs Alabama (BCS)
Strengths: Elite size, has the frame to still add a few pounds – Not stiff at all – Scheme diverse, can play both the three and five techniques – Exhibits overwhelming power at the point of attack – Keeps his pads low in the run game, very difficult to push back – Makes shedding blocks look easy at times – Holds his own against double teams – Locates the ball well, tackles effectively – Shows a good first step and has a few go-to rush moves, can pack a wicked one-handed jolt – Anticipates plays, makes good reads on screens and draws – Incredible upside, could have a Richard Seymour-esque impact early on in his career.
Weaknesses: Only started for one year, just a red-shirt sophomore – Not polished rushing the passer, will need to develop some counter-moves – Pad level rises rushing the passer, especially outside.
