I'm getting a Charles Spencer vibe about Brooks. Pre-injury, of course. Many thought Spencer was too large for the Texans ZBS. But he stepped right in and started as a rookie. Until the Dayne Train ended his career.

Everything about this guy shouts man or power blocking scheme, not a ZBS, even though he's not without athleticism ?

I really like this pick! The Texans finally have a "HOG" in their ZBS! I would not be surprised if he becomes a starter sooner than later! Grade A!

Yeah, I remember bringing him up during our discussion for our combine mock and you were not too high on him. Good to know you are down with him. I think a conditioning program will help him. IIRC, we drafted a huge OL like him once before that got injured early. Our ZBS has changed a bit since Spencer was drafted in 3rd for LT but still pretty heavy dude.

speed rushers on either side will give him hard time at tackles. He should be an OG. In an NFL season he should lose 10 - 15lbs and that should benefit him.

That thought was just for depth purposes .... Having a guy with versatility to play both spots can pay huge dividends during a season.

Looking at the OL , they have only Myers at C tho Caldwell can slide over as well as only Caldwell , Wade Smith and Thomas Austin at OG .... prior to this pick of course.

(Is C - Cody Wallace still on the roster?)

This is my guy. He was my 2nd rated OT/OG he played OT at MIa. Ohio. He's a beast. Brooks had one of the best splits. He is strong as an ox 36 reps and altough he weighs 346 LBS he can get get to the 2nd level. He does need to play with better leverage.

Great pick


Posey not so much

That's hilarious Doc, I got to watch the clip. Does anybody know if we are going to put this guy in at G or T? Any links? Just asking because everybody had Spencer listed as a G in 06 and we plugged him into LT.

This is my favorite pick so far. I can't find a lot of film on him but what I've seen I love. I really like his measureables too.

He might be able to play tackle for us, but I like him at guard.

Have to wait for the presser.

Given his athleticism and size he could play either eventually.

“No, he’ll be inside. We’ll start him inside and put him in with the rest of our guys and see how it works. We’ve lost Eric (Winston), we’ve lost Mike (Brisiel), so we have a couple of spots in there. We’ll move around and see what happens. The best five will play.”
