Overview

Brewer has some redeeming qualities - size and work ethic - but does not possess the movement skills of an NFL offensive lineman. Really struggles versus quick pass rushers and is not a candidate to lead out on the edge or be productive blocking at the second level. Despite size, can be pushed back by defensive lineman with similar size and strength and doesn't get great movement off the ball. He will create some running space by getting into position and walling off defenders and occasionally flashed the ability to pass protect in college. Brewer is a likely rookie free agent.

Analysis

Strengths

Brewer has the size of an NFL offensive tackle and some straight-line speed. Can hold up against most bull rushers. Does a good job with his first step when run blocking to get into position and let his size take over. Plays with good effort.

Weaknesses

Does not have the feet and athleticism needed for the next level. Can not slide and move with speed rushers on the edge. Doesn't always finish after gaining initial position. Not a violent or powerful run blocker and be blown off the ball. Needs to watch his pad level. Not comfortable blocking in space. Inconsistent recognition skills.
