Darrell Brooks
Posted May 1, 2006

The Dallas Cowboys have come to terms with former Arizona safety Darrell Brooks.

Full Name: Darrell Brooks School: Arizona Pos: S

Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 199 40: 4.74 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Four-year starter who led the team in tackles as a senior posting 93/2/2. Junior totals included 73/1/9.

Pos: Disciplined, instinctive safety who plays hard. Stays with assignments and aggressively goes after ball carriers. Has a burst of closing speed, works well with cornerbacks and likes to mix it up.

Neg: Under-sized and slow shedding blocks. Struggles in man-to-man coverage. Not efficient and over-pursues the action.

Analysis: A self-starter consistent on the college field, Brooks projects as a nickel back in the NFL and could eventually develop into a starter.
