Of all the linebackers I’ve looked at Brooks gap shooting ability is second to none he sees a hole and fires though it with no no hesitation and bad intentions. Brooks gap shooting ability is obviously his strength, him getting off blocks is something that he struggles at doesn’t always win the hand fight and gets sucked into the line of scrimmage.

Projection

I’m really high On Jordyn Brooks going forward, I think he projects as a sub linebackers in the league, he’s going to make an immediate impact on special teams. His speed and football IQ make him attractive to teams that play in a lot of nickel and use a quarterback spy. Day two is where I think we see Brooks come off the board, with Carolina and San Francisco being teams that could be inline for Brooks services.
