Brugler Releases List of Top 100 Draft Prospects

2 min read

That includes Brugler, who has Rousseau as his 24th-ranked prospect.

Rousseau is a super long athlete who keeps his momentum going downhill with violent hands and easy acceleration, helping him to quickly disengage from blocks. He is an intelligent player and can talk the talk when it comes to breaking down pass-rush execution, but he is overly reliant on speed/length and needs to improve his anchor, technique and diagnose skills.

Virginia Tech’s Christian Darrisaw was also linked to the Vikings as an offensive tackle by ESPN’s Todd McShay. He is Brugler’s 12th overall prospect.

Keeping his weight over his toes, Darrisaw shows efficient slide quickness in pass pro, and he is a bulldozer in the run game, unlocking his hips to create movement or seal block. While he shows the ability to manhandle defenders once he locks on, he doesn’t always play with a stout anchor or killer instinct.

One expert projected Alabama’s Patrick Surtain II to the Vikings with the 14th overall pick. Brugler has the cornerback as his No. 11 prospect in his rankings.

With his foot athleticism, body range and ball skills, Surtain plays sticky coverage and doesn’t panic downfield, consistently staying balanced and in phase. While he is athletic and false steps are infrequent, he lacks suddenness in his movements, giving explosive receivers a chance to separate early.
