LSU head coach Les Miles has been spending day 3 of the 2012 NFL draft on the NFL Network set, and had this to offer when Buffalo made LSU CB Ron Brooks their second fourth-round selection.
“He brings violence at the point of attack. He can play inside, he can play outside,” said Miles. “We’ve had great corners. He’s been in the position to play as a backup for the corner spots. He played a lot in every game. I think everyone has seen his ability to do that. He plays every down. On special teams he can return kicks. I think they’re getting a great pick there and a guy that will be in the NFL for a long time.”
When asked to compare Brooks to his LSU teammate Morris Claiborne, who went sixth overall, Miles offered the following.
“A little shorter, equally as fast,” said Miles. “Great straight line speed for him and a very violent player. You can use him down in and down out. He’s been a gunner and a jammer on special teams. He’ll be one of the fastest guys on kickoff (coverage). He’s going to contribute a lot of snaps throughout each game. The reality is there are certain guys that are starters no matter when they go on the field. His approach has been that way and I wish him the best.”
