Brodrique was a two-time second-team All Canadian with the Montreal Carabins (Universite de Montreal)

Through 22 career games, he’s had 68.5 total tackles (62 solo), 9.5 sacks, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and interception that went back for a touchdown and a pass breakup.

Brodrique fared well at the CFL Combine presented by New Era in Edmonton in March and was named a coaches’ pick for his performance on the final day of the combine. He also tied with Syracuse’s Matthew Bergeron for biggest gainer in the spring edition of the CFL’s Scouting Bureau, jumping up four spots to No. 11.
