Inside The Bills

Brooks an intriguing specialist

Posted by Chris Brown on May 4, 2012 – 8:48 am

Fourth-round pick Ron Brooks goes all of six-foot and 177 pounds, but by all accounts hits like a freight train. With 4.37 speed however, Brooks proves that mass times acceleration equals power.

“He’s going to help us on all four special teams units,” said Bills assistant special teams coach Stan Kwan. “But he’s a good punt return blocker. You should see how many blocks he has. He will lay you out. He’s a tough kid, he’s fast and has a nose for the ball.”

Kwan also likes LBs Nigel Bradham and Tank Carder feeling they’ll be helping in special teams roles as well.

“That Florida State kid Bradham… that’s fast for that size,” Kwan said in reference to the former Seminole’s 4.64 40-time. “That is really good. And Tank Carder is a tough kid. He’s a workmanlike type guy. It’s a good group coming in.”
