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.”

In addition to retaining assistant DeMontie Cross as inside linebackers coach, head coach Chan Gailey also commented on another new assistant.

“We seem to specialize in a lot of things in the game of football,” said Gailey. “In special teams, we hired Stan Kwan as our assistant special teams coordinator, he’s a former head guy himself.”

Kwan served the past three seasons as the special teams coach for the Detroit Lions.

Bills special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven spoke about Kwan as well.

“It is not an exaggeration for me to say that if they allowed me to pick one guy to help me that it would’ve been Stan Kwan,” said DeHaven. “It was only about seven or eight weeks ago when I was butting heads with him in Seattle when we played Detroit.

“He’s an excellent football coach and he’s been a coordinator for several years. He’s worked as an assistant with a couple of guys that I have as much respect for as anybody I’ve ever coached against. It’s just going to be a great benefit to us in the kicking game.”
