James Brewer Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'8 - 331 lbs.|
2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
James Brewer, OT, Indiana
The offensive tackle class lacks a true star and Brewer can certainly fly off draft boards if he tests well at the Combine (and perhaps gets invited to a senior All-Star game). Brewer could afford to add more "good weight", meaning muscle. For a man his size, he is not particularly strong and tends to lean on guys in run blocking rather than driving them with his lower body. He needs to continue to play well against the elite defensive ends in the Big Ten in order to separate himself.
Currently, there aren't many positives to his game. But his huge frame will certainly whet the appetite of an overconfident offensive line coach somewhere in the NFL. Brewer has good enough footwork for his size to hold someone's attention.
Brewer projects as a fourth round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
