Default 3rd round Brandon Brooks, G,

STRENGTHS Brooks possesses a massive wide body that is not at all sloppy; just a naturally big man. Is more agile than expected, and is effective staying engaged down the line on moving pockets or zone runs. Defensive linemen will actually search for other blockers to engage rather than trying to take on Brooks. He's strong enough to hold back a defensive end with one hand while watch for another rusher with his other hand. Brooks has some ability to hit linebackers at the second level, and then it is tough for those players to shed him even if he's not in perfect position.

WEAKNESSES Brooks has only adequate quickness out of his stance, and it takes him time to get in his pass set from a three-point stance. NFL defensive linemen might be able to jump gaps or do a swim move by him. Brooks relies on his bulk and quicker defenders can fall off his blocks. Brooks also stands around too much if not engaged in a block, and commonly seen watching the play instead of finding a man to hit.

I love this pick. Earlier in the draft season I was a little hesitant about his size (and being projected in the second), but I really like the guy at this point in the draft. Day 1 starter IMO.

#Texans pick Miami (Ohio) G Brandon Brooks 76th overall in 3rd rd. Mike Mayock just called him a "massive, physical freak"
Wasn't invited to combine but ran a 4.98 40.

If Kubiak is right about this kid having the feet to play guard in a zone blocking scheme, he has the potential to be very very good.

And nobody likes scouts, gotta show that nasty streak. Loved this comment from the youtube clip.

Definitely an interior guy but he'll be a starter quite soon. Wouldn't be surprised to see him supplant Wade Smith in '13.
