BIO: Three-year starter who made spot appearances with the first team as a freshman. All-Conference selection the past two years, most recently totaling 82/1/5 as a senior. Posted a career-high 100 tackles as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Aggressive, run-defending safety with the ability to play in zone. Explosive up the field supporting the run, defends screen plays and works to make positive things happen. Adequate backpedaling, displays a burst of closing speed and effective facing the quarterback. Fast off the edge on blitzes. Squares into tackles and wraps up.
NEGATIVES: Best playing between the numbers and usually a half step late to the flanks in coverage. Struggles in man-to-man situations. More of a chaser rather than a defender who diagnoses the action.
ANALYSIS: A nice-size safety with growth potential, Brimmer has the mentality and physical skills to play up in the box. Best defending the run, he displays adequate skills covering the pass in a small area and looks best suited for a two-deep system.
