Strengths

Ideal overall size and length. Plus speed and athleticism. Great play recognition and instant reaction time against the run. Strong tackler. Impressive ability to keep his eye on the ball and feel his way through/around traffic towards it. Takes on ball-carriers with aggressiveness in space. Will deliver a big hit whenever possible. Plays with violence. Hovers towards the action to help in run support. Played in the box much of the time and wasn’t out of place. Excellent pursuit. Very effective tracking ability as a backside defender. Tries to get in on gang tackles to deliver a blow to opponents. Physical and strong taking on blocks (including offensive linemen). Won’t think twice about trying to blow up a play by drilling a blocker. Very good ball skills. Shows well in man coverage versus tight ends. Stays on his toes in coverage. Reliable in man coverage out of the slot. Uses length to deflect passes at the catch point. Reads the quarterback’s eyes in robber coverage. Quick to identify and play screen passes of all types. Had a clutch interception late in 2021 season opener versus Wisconsin after leaving game twice due to injury. Fiery overall player.

 

Weaknesses

Will miss some tackles by flying in and/or going to low. Aggressiveness can get him sucked into the wrong gap versus the run. Play recognition not quite as good against the pass. Better as a middle/box safety than centerfielder. Failed to pick up deep crosser as deep safety in Cover-3 versus Ohio State (2021).

Conclusion

Overall, Brisker is a well-rounded safety that defends the run at a high level and is at his best covering the intermediate area of the field against the pass. He should be viewed as a late first-round or early second-round selection.
