2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

James Brewer, OT, Indiana

At 6-foot 8-inches tall, a lot of teams will surely give Indiana University's James Brewer a look. He is a towering and imposing player with good feet and adequate balance. For any team that drafts Brewer, they are getting a player that needs polish. Brewer has below average quickness and needs to better use his hands in pass protection. He relies far too much on his size and lacks the fundamentals to block at the NFL level.

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.
