and offensive line.

"I would like to play defensive end," said Brooks. "I think I
am best at that position right now. I think my biggest strength is rushing the
Brooks has the size and speed to play linebacker or defensive end, but with
pass rushing being a strength of Brooks, don't be surprised to see this kid put
his hand down and come off the edge as a full time defensive end down the road.
Playing all those different position last year, Brooks put up these numbers…
"I had ninety nine tackles, eleven tackles for loss and seven
quarterback sacks. I also had a lot of quarterback hurries."
Brooks is someone that will definitely pass the eye test. With his physical
appearance and his performance on the field, he has caught the attention of many

Scott Kennedy Scouting Report
: Jasper Brooks was in several different
positions as stated above, but it was at outside linebacker when he really
shined. When he had to read and react at middle linebacker, he struggled, but
when he was turned loose from the outside, he was a force. At 6-3 and 210 pounds
currently, Brooks has the size and speed to play outside linebacker, but his
future looks to be as a pass rushing defensive end. He is strong at the point of
contact when he is on the attack, and he is relentless in his pursuit once he
spots his target.
See him in action in this presentation by ScoutTV. The first game, he is playing
a lot of outside linebacker, and it is no coincidence that he had more tackles
in the first game on this clip than he had on the next two games combined.
