 NFL mocks preseason Bio

Bar none, the best center prospect in the 2012 crop of players. Brewster is entering his fourth year as the starting center for the Buckeyes, and has been a rock for that offensive line. Former freshman All American and a technician on the offensive line. Enters his senior year after being considered a first round talent as a junior. Brewster will likely be the top ranked interior lineman heading into the 2012 draft barring injury, and there’s really not a whole lot you can say about him. He is solid as a rock, durable, reliable, smart, and he is a team leader. Add to that the requisite NFL size, and a degree from one of the most prestigious universities in the United States, and you have yourself a top of the line NFL prospect.


Brewster was one of the better prospects heading into the season, but has had a poor season, and an even worse pre-draft process. He has gone from a late first round pick after the 2010 season to a fourth round pick now. He struggled mightily at the Senior bowl and scouts don’t think he can handle nose tackles in the N.F.L. He also was listed at 6’5 but measured in at 6’2 during the combine.
