BRR Filmroom: Bryan Brokop

The Huskers picked up a great commitment on Saturday night before their Big Ten home opener from talented 2016 offensive lineman Bryan Brokop. The film on Brokop is incredibly impressive and should get Nebraska excited about the return of the "Pipeline" to Lincoln.

Bryan Brokop is a name that Nebraska fans have known about for a while. Nebraska got the film from the New Lenox (Ill.) Lincoln-Way West after his sophomore year and thought that he was a senior according to Brokop.

Watch the film and you will understand why. Brokop is a man among boys out there on the football field. Watching him pull is a thing of beauty.

Brokop almost does a little bit of a side-shuffle -- demonstrating lateral movement ability -- and stays low. Staying low isn't something that lineman do a great job of doing in high school mainly because they have such a size advantage.

The 6-foot-5 and 273-pound offensive guard has plays where he is away from the ball and not just by a little bit, but by yards. You can see why they included them though. What Nebraska fans will see will remind them of the type of hustle the Pipeline had during the 90's.

Nebraska has to be drooling thinking about the pulls, the leads and the traps that they will be able to run with Brokop. What you don't get a great feel for from the film is where Brokop is at when it comes to pass protection.

Brokop plays in an offense that doesn't appear to pass the ball a lot, but typically a player like Brokop can get into a couple of camps and learn some technique and drills to work on their own. Tanner Farmer a year ago had to do the same thing. He is also a guard and isn't as large of a concern if he was a tackle.

Brokop is listed as the No. 6 offensive guard in the nation and is No. 134 on the Scout.com 300 list for 2016. The talented junior seemed to be favoring the Huskers since they offered. He chose the Huskers over offers from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Syracuse and North Carolina State.
