Broderick Binns
Position: DE
Class:  Sr
School: Iowa
HT: 6'0"
WT: 261 lbs.
40 Time: 4.9
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Full-time starter during his senior and sophomore campaigns while playing five games with the first team as a junior. Totals last year included 60 tackles/12 tackles for loss/5 sacks. Junior numbers included 36 tackles with one tackle for loss. Sophomore totals included career-high numbers of 63/10/6 with nine passes broken up.

Positives: Undersized yet explosive college lineman who gets the most from his ability. Remains disciplined with assignments, plays within himself and makes a lot of smart plays on the field. Fires off the snap with a quick first step, immediately locates the ball and shows the ability to alter his angle of attack and chase the action laterally. Keeps his knees bent, plays with terrific pad level and naturally gets leverage on opponents. Keeps his feet driving up the field, slides off blocks and gets his hands up to knock away the pass if he cannot get to the quarterback. Adequate speed off the edge and chases the action hard.

Negatives: First-move lineman who struggles getting off blocks or will be engulfed at the point of attack. Possesses just an average closing burst of speed. Consistently overmatched by opponents.

Analysis: Binns was a productive college lineman who lacks great measurables for the next level. His quickness, change-of-direction ability and intensity will make him an attractive backup as a three-technique tackle at the next level.

Projection: FA
