Overview

Brooks is an excellent small-school offensive lineman who made the transition from defensive line to offense and found a lot of success. He was a productive performer for James Madison , starting all 38 games in his final three seasons. He is a good athlete who does a good job of keeping his pad level down and his weight over his feet, but there are times when he can simply be overpowered by big interior linemen. He understands angles and does a good job of using his hands to control and steer opponents but needs to develop more lower body strength if he wants to succeed at the next level.

Analysis

Strengths

Brooks is tall with adequate bulk. Possesses quick feet and the athleticism to make blocks in space. Uses long arms to get inside the defender's pads and maintains a wide base. Fierce competitor who shows a bit of a mean streak and fights to the whistle.

Weaknesses

Lacks the upper-body strength to consistently deliver a strong punch and struggles to generate a solid push. Keeps his pads a bit high and does not always get leverage on his blocks. Played at the Division I-AA level and will face a steep learning curve at the next level.
