Prospect Summary

Nick Broeker NFL Draft Scouting Report

IOL, Ole Miss Rebels

Nick Broeker is a senior offensive lineman who has been a three-year starter for the Rebels. Broeker has played in more than 40 games throughout his career and never missed a game due to injury. For the 2022 season, Broeker made the transition from playing the LT position to LG. Broeker finished his career as a two-time All-SEC selection. During his time at Ole Miss, he has shown to have the athleticism to be a position-versatile player. 

Playing both LG and LT, Broeker shows to have plus-level lateral movements. In the run game, Broeker does a good job in zone blocking schemes, having the ability to cut off defenders and also doing a good job of climbing to the second level. Broeker has range as a blocker and shows to be effective when on screens. In pass protection, Broeker has quick feet to get depth in his pass set. He also shows the ability to move laterally to be able to react to defenders’ initial move and their counter move and stay attached to them long enough for the quarterback to have an opportunity to get rid of the ball. Broeker’s lateral agility and movement skills allow him to be an effective blocker on the right side of the line.

Broeker’s improvement as a player stems from his functional strength. In the run game, while Broeker is able to make initial contact with defenders, he isn’t able to sustain blocks because he does not appear to have the strength to latch and sustain and is easily sheddable by defenders at times. There are also instances where on run-blocking plays, Broeker gives up ground and defenders are able to knock him back into the backfield. In pass protection, Broeker’s strength impacts his ability to anchor on defenders. When defenders convert speed to power and bull rush him, he lacks the ability to be able to plant his feet and stop defenders from collapsing the pocket.
