STRENGTHS Brooks possesses a massive wide body that is not at all sloppy; just a naturally big man. Is more agile than expected, and is effective staying engaged down the line on moving pockets or zone runs. Defensive linemen will actually search for other blockers to engage rather than trying to take on Brooks. He's strong enough to hold back a defensive end with one hand while watch for another rusher with his other hand. Brooks has some ability to hit linebackers at the second level, and then it is tough for those players to shed him even if he's not in perfect position. WEAKNESSES Brooks has only adequate quickness out of his stance, and it takes him time to get in his pass set from a three-point stance. NFL defensive linemen might be able to jump gaps or do a swim move by him. Brooks relies on his bulk and quicker defenders can fall off his blocks. Brooks also stands around too much if not engaged in a block, and commonly seen watching the play instead of finding a man to hit.
