2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Michael Brewster, C, Ohio State
Although he lacks exceptional athleticism or strength, Brewster is a solid offensive line prospect with no gaps in his game. He is a better pass protector than run blocker, but this mostly has to do with his frame. He's a long and lean player who will need to add bulk to his lower half. With an improved knee bend, he'll do a much better job using his pad leverage to his advantage. Brewster has good feet, but sometimes gets a bit lazy with his technique and can get knocked off-balance. He will need to shuffle his feet and better maintain his center of gravity when taking on NFL-caliber defensive tackles. He is sometimes a bit late seeing the second level, identifying a blitzing linebacker and disengaging from his double-team.
Most of Brewster's shortcomings can be improved with refinement of his fundamentals. He could afford to add more bulk, but in this new pass-oriented NFL, pass blockers are at a new premium.
