Brodney Pool S Oklahoma 63 208
By: Robert Davis

Brodney Pool moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore, and made a huge splash. He finished the year with 68 tackles, 9 tackles for loss, and 7 interceptions. He was more active as a junior, where he totaled 92 tackles, 5 for loss, and 2 interceptions.

Physically, Pool looks like the ideal free safety prospect. Hes tall and lanky, and brings very good athleticism and speed to play centerfield. He can match up one on one in coverage with receivers down the field. He is aggressive and will attack the line of scrimmage in the running game.

Pools weaknesses could be attributed to his youth. He declared after his true junior season, and will be a 21 year old rookie next year. He needs to bulk up a bit and improve his strength to play at the next level. Bigger wideouts can outmuscle him down the field, and his lack of strength hurts around the line of scrimmage in the running game. While Pool shows good instincts, hes too aggressive at times. He will bite on fakes to make the big play, and he needs to show more discipline in the secondary.

Pool has a lot of upside as a safety. With some time at the next level he should be able to bulk up, and a good coach will teach him to remain disciplined in deep coverage. He has a little bit of a Deon Grant look to him while he was at Tennessee, and he will probably go in the same draft range. With a good showing in workouts, he may hear his name called in the first round, but the safe bet is that he will be a second round selection.
