4. LB Kentrell Brothers/Missouri
Brothers was a tackling machine at Mizzou – piling up an NCAA-high 152 stops for a defense that wasn’t as talented as several recent ones in Columbia, but still finished near the top of the pack statistically in the conference. Brothers played a huge role in that.
He didn’t test well in the pre-draft phase with a 40 time in the 4.8 range. But get him in the right scheme – maybe as an inside linebacker in a 3-4 – and he should have every opportunity to find a spot on an NFL defense while also helping out on special teams.
