For Syracuse, their highest rated player is, who is projected to be selected in the sixth round. Bromley is a defensive tackle, and I really believe the Texans need to improve at the position this offseason.

Bromley is the 18th rated DT on the CBS Board as the senior stands at 6-3 and weighs 285 pounds.

This season Bromley has 34 tackles (26 solo) and nine sacks.

In a bowl preview on ESPN, it says a key matchup is Bromley against the Minnesota offensive line:

“Minnesota’s offensive line against Bromley and the Syracuse defensive front seven. The Orange can get into the backfield — they’re tied for 19th nationally in tackles for loss (7.3 per game) — and sack the quarterback (2.75 sacks per game, tied for 22nd).”

I haven’t watched Bromley enough to really say much about him, but just from his stats he could possibly be looked at a need for the Texans and could be a nice pickup late in the draft, but with pick in the later rounds it is just tough to tell.
