2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
James Brown, OT, Troy
Brown plays up to his competition and plays tough. His burst off the line is clean, yet he shows an inconsistent patience to absorb contact. What this means is he gets his body out in front of his feet, which can throw of his balance and take him out of plays. Technically, he works his hips well when engaged by defenders. Brown's footwork is satisfactory, but not reliable enough for the NFL.
It is likely he'll have to sit his first year to learn the details of how to play as a guard. He's a better run blocker than pass blocker. There's still room for improvement since he does not yet fully understood the position. Brown lacks athleticism and didn't show much at the combine. His versatility is what is carrying his draft stock.
