James Brewer
Round 4, Pick 117
Position: T
Class:  5Sr
School: Indiana
Conference: Big Ten
HT: 6-6.5
WT: 323
40 Time: 5.21
Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior.

Positives: "Nice-sized blocker who plays with terrific quickness. Immediately gets off the snap, blocks with a wide base, and displays better-than-average footwork in pass protection. Keeps his feet moving throughout the play, relatively quick, and gets his hands into defenders. Stays square, understands angles and body positioning, and uses them to seal defenders from the action. Strong and controls defenders once engaged in a block."

Negatives: "Not a natural knee bender and gets tall as the play proceeds. Stiff, struggles to adjust, and is best in a small area."

Analysis: "Brewer has strong-side tackle size yet better than average quickness in pass protection. He must polish his game, improve his flexibility, and consistently block with leverage. Brewer offers some upside and has an outside shot to break into a starting lineup in the near future."

Projection: 3rd
