Michael Brockers continues his praise of Aidan Hutchinson
Aidan Hutchinson is making an early impression on the Lions, and veteran defensive lineman Michael Brockers has continued his praise.
Fortune smiled on the Detroit Lions when the pre-draft buzz met reality and Aidan Hutchinson was available at No. 2 overall in April’s draft. By all accounts he has made an early good impression in the building.
Having spent time along side Aaron Donald with the Rams, Lions’ veteran defensive lineman Michael Brockers knows of which he speaks when it comes to seeing the right things from a young defensive lineman.
On the “Twentyman In The Huddle” podcast with Lions.com writer Tim Twentyman recently, Brockers spoke about Hutchinson’s immediate impact.
"He’s (Hutchinson) doing a hell of a job,” Brockers expressed. “He’ll definitely open up a lot of more one-on-one opportunities, because he has a lot of juice, man. He has a lot of skillset on that edge. He can rush, he can go, he has a high motor. And you know, with a guy like that on your team, you know, the other teams are gonna, hey, we’ve got to chip this guy, we’ve got to put another guy on him. So, now I’ve got to find two guys to possibly block him, and that opens things up.”"

Speaking from his football and cheerleading camp in Houston over the weekend, via Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network, Brockers had more to say about Hutchinson.
"Man, he’s a man that’s on a mission,” Brockers said of Hutchinson. “He does everything that he’s supposed to do. You don’t even have to tell him, and this is him doing a lot of his rookie duties. We didn’t even need to ask him. He just did it. ‘What do you guys need for the room?’Okay, this is a man who thinks ahead of time and you can respect a man like that. He has a lot of respect in my book moving forward."
As much as Hutchinson will immediately bring to a Lions’ pass rush that needs the help, ideally anyway, his intangible value is shining through immediately and Brockers has taken note.
