BC Defensive Tackle Ron Brace to Join Patriots

While B. J. Raji got most of the press with respect to BC’s defensive line, Brace deserves much of the credit in his own right. He is bigger than Raji at 6’3″ and 330 pounds, giving him a couple inches and 10 or so pounds. He is not quite as athletic as Raji, but is a space filler and key run stuffer. The Springfield, Massachusetts product was part of the nation’s second and seventh best rushing defenses the past two years. He also had two sacks apiece in his junior and senior season.

As he is not a prototypical pass rusher, despite his size, he may be more of a run stopping specialist, which he has a proven track record of doing. The BC frontline, on his and Raji’s strength, was dominant. Brace joins Dan Koppen (C, 5th round, 2003) as a Bill Belichick era BC selection, which worked out well.
