Brandon Brooks scouting report

Brandon Brooks OG Miami OH #56
Ht: 6’5″Wt: 353  
Strengths:
Impressive size and strength. Has the ability to dominate a matchup when focused. Does a great job anchoring against the bull rush; strong lower body makes him tough to move. Impressive upper body strength; can toss around small defensive linemen. Decent athleticism for his size; could potentially play right tackle if he stays in shape and loses some weight. Intelligent off the field; graduated with degree in psychology in Dec. 2011.
Weaknesses:
Weight may be an issue; has struggled to keep his weight down and has played at up to 375 pounds in the past. Seems to lack focus at times; rarely dominates as easily has he should considering his size and the level of competition he was frequently facing. Should have been more of a force in the MAC, but seems to lack the intensity necessary to play at a consistently high level. Lack of intensity on the field, coupled with his weight issues, raises concerns about his work ethic and his dedication to the game. Teams will need to question him on his desire to improve and should question his college coaches as well.
Comments:
Brooks certainly has the raw physical tools to the play at the next level, but there are definitely some things to be concerned about. It always raises a red flag when a player who possesses the physical tools to dominate at a lower level of competition seems to play down to the level of his opponents. When a player struggles to keep his weight under control and play at a consistent level in college, it is often tough to motivate that player once he’s collecting an NFL paycheck.
