Player Overview

Jason "Jay" Bromley wasn't highly recruited, but it didn't take long for him to become a starter at Syracuse (33 career starts), showing steady improvement, which was also reflected on the stat sheet.

He led Syracuse in sacks (10.0) and tackles for loss (14.5) as a senior, earning All-ACC third team honors.

Bromley is an athletic upfield penetrator who stays stout at the point of attack and can handle multiple blocks. He needs to break several bad habits, most importantly allowing his pads to rise at the line of scrimmage, losing immediate leverage off the snap and struggling to use his hands to disengage.

Bromley is draftable due to his ball quickness and strong football character and projects as a late round selection.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Tall, well-built frame with some upper body bulk. Good length with strong hands to finish once he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Quick first step to win with initial burst to force the issue. Strong momentum to attack gaps, creating holding calls. Controls the line of scrimmage with upper body strength and handles blockers well at the point, not easily redirected.

Good pursuit speed to chase down ballcarriers from behind. Takes well to coaching with strong preparation habits. Versatile experience lining up just about everywhere on the defensive line at Syracuse, even played on some special teams coverages. Three-year starter including a productive senior season, becoming the first Syracuse interior lineman to have double-digit sacks since 1987.

WEAKNESSES: Adequate lower body power and needs to strengthen his anchor. Needs to keep his pads low and use consistent leverage to penetrate the backfield. Sacrifices his body too easily and will be stonewalled when blockers attack his body. Bad habit of lowering his head and eye level when engaged, losing sight of the ball.

Not the most fluid and plays too upright, struggling to change directions smoothly. Needs to show consistent snap anticipation on every play - streaky on tape in this area and will jump offsides.

Limited array of pass rush moves and needs to develop better arm and hand techniques. Tends to wear down after his initial rush doesn't work and needs to work on his counter measures and second chance motor. Needs to improve his balance and awareness through the trash.

05/11/2014 - A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 3/74 -- Jay Bromley, DT, 6-3, 306, Syracuse...Bromley was a productive two-technique lineman for the Orangemen who posted 10.5 sacks last season and who had success penetrating the backfield to create pressure. Bromley, who was projected to go anywhere in the fourth through sixth rounds by NFL Draft Scout, figures to, at first, become part of the defensive interior rotation as a pass rusher. - The Sports Xchange
