Brace is a massive interior lineman who controls the middle. He has a quick first step, uses his hands effectively and is able to take on double teams. He uses his size to his advantage to gain the upper hand against the opposition and collapses the pocket. He's strong against the run and flashes the ability to penetrate disrupting the quarterback.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis While some might question whether Brace can play NT in a 3-4 defensive scheme, he should be able to at least compete for playing time at DE this season.
