2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Brandon Brooks, OG, Miami (OH)
Competition in the Mid American Conference did not live up to expectations but that didn't stop Brooks from being one of the more impressive players at that level. He moves very well once he gets moving. As a run blocker, he performs best as a zone blocker. He's not really the type to drive forward and just dominate another player. Brooks takes good angles to the second level and has a natural bend. Despite a lack of lateral quickness, he doesn't have many 'bad' steps where he is wasting motion or inactive.
Brooks could afford to use his hands better as a pass blocker. He needs his hands to stay active and engage since he doesn't have the brute strength to impose his will, per se. He has a very good motor and mean streak. Brooks could also afford to shed a few pounds and improve upon his conditioning, not because he takes plays off but simply because, as mentioned, he's a bit overweight.
