What do you guys think about him?

He is a good DT, probably more of a pure 3-4 NT at the next level. He can get penetration and pressure the QB but he is more of a pure space eater. Raji offers a lot more but Brace could be a stud for a 3-4 team.

A bigger version of Jason Ferguson. He'll carve out a nice career as a NT for someone or multiple someones.

I like the dude as a prospect and I would actually like to match him up with ellis if we can aquire enough picks somehow to be able to afford to spend a pick of a non-primary need

How do you guys see him as a 4-3 NT like with the Raiders and Kelly.

i don't know what team in the league wouldn't want him. i think everybody has their team picking him up in the 3rd round...if he lasts that long.

His team mate B.J Raji gets more attention but the guy I am looking closely at is Ron Brace.

At 6'2" 330lbs he has the look of the perfect NT and a true force against the run.

I wonder how high he can go? The guys who play the 3-4 NT always seem to go a little higher then they should. I guess it is the 30lbs rule. I think Brace is a solid 2nd round prospect but could he move up like Sed Ellis did last year [not to 7 but to the late twenties]

Massive space eaters like Brace I cannot see lasting until the 3rd or even past the early 2nd. There are not a lot of true monsters in the middle and they tend to go high.

I would love for the Raiders to draft him I would be fine if they took him in the 2nd or traded up to get him in the late 1st.
