Draft Profile: Bio
Marcel Brooks from Marcus High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 5-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Brooks opted to join TCU.

In 2021 as a freshman Brooks saw action in 7 games for the Horned Frogs as he made 5 receptions for just 46 yards for an average of 9.2 yards per reception, with no TDs, and a solid QB rating when targeted of 78.1.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Brooks has a compact build, but Brooks is a crafty edge player who is very good against the run. He sets the edge and effectively wards off blocks with a strong core, powerful limbs, and natural leverage.
  • Combines excellent power with initial quickness, but one of his best attributes are his violent hands, which he uses with impressive precision.
  • He's not an elite pass rusher and projects as a left end in a 4-3 defense. If he layers on more muscle, he might fit in the 3-4. Size, strength and versatility should push him into the top 75 picks.
  • Has a quick burst off the line and times the snap well. Good upper-body strength and length to lock-out his opponent and at least moderate lateral agility to slide inside or spill out to contain.
  • He has an excellent feel for working off blockers and knowing how and when to counter as the play goes on.
  • Brooks has the classic frame and long arms with some explosion, power and ability to close.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s going to struggle at the point of attack. As a pass rusher, Brooks lacks the ideal length to ward off blockers and too often allows linemen to get into his chest.
  • Brooks also shows some stiffness when trying to bend the edge, often getting pushed past the pocket — he seems more comfortable countering back inside.
  • As a pass rusher, he needs the scheme to create deception and confusion to give him a free run.
