The idea is something like:

bridge powers for tractor beam, mines/torpedos that can slow down the target, gravity well and eject warp plasma.

Would it be practical?
The problem with BoPs, though, is the lower shields and hull. Chances are, you're going to be targeted as soon as you tractor someone, so they can get away. If they have Subspace Jumper, and an Escort, you'll be in their forward firing arc immediately.
