ANALYST'S REPORTS

    PROS: True team-first guy who was highly recruited out of high school and had to wait his turn behind the likes of Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice. A physical running who will attack the middle of the trenches. Pairs balance with physicality well. Has the frame and strength to shoulder big carry loads. His years of being a backup running back have made him a patient one, as he often waits for plays to develop more than he'll force openings. This gives him good vision for a variety of different blocking concepts. Possesses the straight line speed to take some runs to the house, if blocked well. Understands angles with running lanes and leverage with blocking.

    CONS: Not the best athlete in the world. Though Brossette can take some carries for big yards, he doesn't have that rare extra gear that will make him a first-round running back. He's agile due to his balance and his lower body power, but he's not a quick-twitch player. Lack of experience has helped his vision, but no matter how you spin it, being green to game action will be talked about with overall collegiate production. A strong senior year as the starter could wipe most of that away.
