Michael Brewster NFL Draft Profile

Michael Brewster, Senior, Center, Ohio State


After the 2010 season, Michael Brewster said he wanted to return to Ohio State to be a leader. The four year starter at center has been the leader of the offensive line for a while, but he can be an offensive leader in 2011. With suspensions to quarterback Terrell Pryor, running back Dan Herron, wide receiver DeVier Posey and tackle Mike Adams, Brewster will shoulder a lot of the responsibility to hold the team together while those superstars are gone.

Brewster started his freshman campaign as a backup, but an injury to Steve Rehring forced Brewster into action. He started ten games as a true freshman and has never given up that role. In fact, his role has expanded as Brewster has matured into one of the best centers in the nation.


Final Projection:

What makes Brewster such an intriguing NFL prospect is his versatility. His intelligence and leadership have made him a center at Ohio State, but he has a nice 6-5 frame and could play guard or tackle with a little extra weight. His future is most likely at center, but NFL teams will love the fact that he can slide over a spot or two and fill in anywhere on the line.

1/5/12 Update:

Brewster's versatility is still his strong point, but he has a lot going for him no matter which position you want to plug him into. Being one of the top centers in this draft class is nice, but it will not be enough for Brewster to get selected on the first day of the draft. Right now he is looking like a third or fourth round pick, but he can boost his stock with some solid pre-draft workouts.
