Default Re: 3rd round Brandon Brooks, G,

Also i have to say i love this pick.
He probably starts day 1 either for caldwell or smith and he gives us a nice body for foster to run through.
definitely doesn't look like a 340 pounder. looks like he has a lot of power through his legs

Verrrry interesting. Good find, aussie_texan!

So his destination is to play G and just bulldoze people. My only concerns can he pull-and-locate in enough time? His downside is that he takes time getting out of the blocks at the snap. That can be hard if he's pulling on a run play.

But anything that needs to go to the right side? He's going to maul anybody on that right side and make them pay dearly for taking him on.

EDIT: I guess it's totally possible he plays LG, too. Can be emergency LT too.

In the presser, Dennison said G.

Actually, we had 5, but three of them are Shelley Smith, Thomas Austin, and Andrew Gardner who have a cumulative zero starts and six games active among them, so it's kind of like we only had 2.

Check out the link and look at some of his measureables. 4 year starter as well.

Pumped about this guy and what he's going to mean to our running game. This completely makes up for not grabbing zeitler. Although both pf them would have been awesome.

Caldwell and smith better be on notice. He's going to push for a starting spot.

This guy will be something special. His physical tools are as good as Carl Nicks / Jahri Evans. The knock on him is that he isn't an obviously mean-spirited blocker, but neither are the best OL in this game (see Jonathan Ogden, Walter Jones, etc.). I really think we will look back on this pick in a few years as a stroke of genius.

The report on him is that he can be slow out of his stance .... losing a little weight could help some guy's with that issue but considering how lean this guy is at that weight .... I dont think it would have much effect.

I think it's a fair question. I'm really not liking that footwork of his from the scout video. It somewhat seemed like he wasn't even really into the whole routine until the time came to engage his guy. I'm afraid that he's slow, lanky, clumsy but... gawd... he can move fast and push once in a straight line! NT sounds like the perfect position for him.

I haven't seen any gameday college videos of his. If anybody sees some... post 'em up.

This guy has big time potential in our system. I think the vision of Foster will cover up any pulling deficiencies he has until he gets comfortable doing things the coaches ask him to do. I know where we're running short yardage now!

And I read someplace that he ballooned to 370 once, so this guy is a dubious choice in a system that is primarily zone-blocking in terms of Oline schemes because it utilizes relatively nimble lineman who can move well laterally as well as get into the second-level. I don't know, perhaps it indicates a shift away from the ZBS by the Texans to a more power-oriented offensive line philosophy for its rushing game ?

No, I think it just means the Texans lucked into getting a big guard who can move like a nimble linemen (for the most part). Plus, he is strong as hell. I read that he was straight manhandling defensive linemen. Who take any linemen who is doing that.
