    -Four year starter.
    -Came to Ohio State as a LT. Played his entire HS as a LT.
    -Never played C ever till freshman year.
    -Became a full time starter as a freshman, 3 games in due to an injury


    Before this year, I thought he would be a perfect fit for a team that uses the zone blocking. But this offseason, he gained 15lbs, going from 300ish to 315. He looks stronger and sturdy from what I saw for the last 3 years. A bit of Nick Mangold, something I never saw from him the last three years.

    So since I was doing a weekly Mike Brewster videos, I needed a sole thread dedicated to him.

    So, watch and discuss.

    Man, I can't wait for the MSU-OSU game to see how he matches up with Worthy and Rashard-White.

    He might be worth a look, if Konz does not declre.

    Scott Wright, Draft Countdown, in his underated, overrated section, he says Konz is the most overated center in the country. For what it's worth and picks Brewster as the best center, as do most pundits. Just sayin !

    Great stuff, Brother Ninja. :cool:

    Been a fan of Brewster for a LONG time: Actually had him in my early Mocks, last year, PRAYING that he'd declare!! :D

    Wouldn't mind Jones, either.

    Don't know if that is true or not about the Wisc center. I've never really watched him. Last year I was too busy paying attention to LG Monfitt and LT Camiri. If Wisc is on, I'll take a look.

    Konz is a monster, but he's still very raw. He's nowhere near as polished as Brewster, but he's much more effective, in my opinion. He's huge and powerful, and they pull him on sweeps all the time, so he has plenty of mobility. I think he could handle big NT one-on-one, and that would allow the Patriots even more flexibility with their offense.

    Love the work Ninja. If you could keep this going all year we'd have a lot to look at during the offseason.

    Would like to see a individual thread for Konz highlights and videos if you could find the time.

    So far, I downloaded Boise St vs UGA, USC vs UGA, and another game w. a potential Pats players. Have not downloaded a Wisc Game. The uploader has not uploaded any Wisc game. As soon as he does, I will download it. I plan on working on the college games after the season ends. Good thing I have a 2TB external hard drive lol.

    Watched some of the OSU and Miami game last night and Brewster looked average at best. On running plays he got some movement,but on passing plays he struggled with the quickness of the big Miami DT's and got beat a couple of times.

    His technique and strength appear adequate, but his quickness is lacking.

    I watched the game to and came away unimpressed and a bit bewildered too. His right guard is not very good. Anyhone notice when he hiked the ball he was basically alone on a island on several plays? I found it weird and wondered why blockers weren't engaging him or vice versa. I'm assuming they were stacking the ends and using delayed blitzes. Anyway, not a very good game from him. I've seen him play better. Also his QB is about as mobile as Marino.

    Plz don't insult Marino. lol. That qb Joe Bauserman, is the ubber definition of Epic Fail. He was 2/13 for 13 yards for the WHOLE Freaking game. It was disgusting to watch. I swear, if Miller isn't the QB for next week, I'm going to stab some fool when I go to OSU for school. He had good time to throw the ball, and all he did was over throw some or one hop a WR/TE.

    As for Brew, you are correct. HE had better days. I did see him get beat couple of times. And yeah, except for Brew and the useless RT (who shockingly didn't have an annual false start for each game), they are all 1st yr starters, redshirt fresh and sophs.

    I've have to download the game and produce it. God I need some bleach and draino to watch that pitiful game again. Good Lord Yeesh!!!!:mad:

    they say he's best center prospect and list him at #21, Draft Ace & Draft Breakdown both have him at # 19. I'm hoping for 16 or higher. Though even at 16 it would take our 1st,2nd and 3rd rd. picks, to protect Tom its worth it.

    Re: nepatriotsdraft.com on Mike BrewsterT

    Not to pick on you. But, couldn't this have been put under the other Mike Brewster thread? 6 threads down?? He may not even be worth a 1st. Let alone a 1, 2 and 3. I'm beginning to dislike this kid already. Many other sites don't even have him as a 1st rounder. With Solder devoping nicely and Matt Light back next year. And, with B. Waters around to groom M. Cannon this year and next year. C isn't as big a need as this team has. I'd like to get one. Might spend one first or Oakland 2nd on one. But, no way in hell am I giving up multiple picks for Brewster.

    Re: nepatriotsdraft.com on Mike BrewsterT

    I'm pretty sure Dan Koppen was a 5th rounder. Dan Connolly, the guy who's doing pretty well at Center in Koppen's absence was undrafted.

    Good Centers are not that hard to find. And usually don't even go in the first round. Also, don't forget: We have Dante Scarnecchia. The coach who turned a college wrestler who didn't even play football in college into a damn fine RG.

    That being said. I've watched Brewster a little and I don't get the appeal. He wasn't bad. Just kind of average. I would think the OC that some draft sites are drooling over would stand out even to my amateur eye.

    You are absolutely correct on Dante. He can make a decent blocker great in a year or two.

    The thing we like most about Brewster is his attitude and his perceived football IQ.

    His line calls almost always look impeccable, with Pryor probably being little help. Technique you can correct quickly, having the mental acumen to jump in right away in the Patriots system is special.

    Re: nepatriotsdraft.com on Mike BrewsterT

    I should have not started a new thread. My bad, my not so good,whatever.

    I'm sorry about Brewster's name being mentioned so often but, a lot of us draftniks remember that it was pressure up the middle that spelled our doom from 2007 to present. When so many people liken him to Mangold, that's reason enough to get excited. And as good as Koppen has been, this new breed ( Suh, Ngata etc.,etc.) is way too much for him to handle. How often does Woolfolk get by Mangold?

    Peachhead, for every center that was drafted last year and is starting I'll give you two points and for every two rounds that no center is starting I get 1 point. They must be starting at center. Here goes.

    Rd1- Pouncey- Miami- you get 2 pts.
    Rds 2-3- nobody - you are ahead 1 pt.
    Rds 3-4 nobody- all tied up, Let's call the game and say if you can get a player like Brady, protect him the best you can.

    Re: nepatriotsdraft.com on Mike BrewsterT

    Here's one pretty good draft site that has him the number two C. 84th overall. You're seriously over-rating him. The Pouncey picked by the Steelers went 18th overall. And, Brewster isn't near the prospect he was. I also added a 2nd list and they don't have him in their top 32 either. ESPN Scout Inc.. Not sure where they have him. But, stops at 32.

    It's a wee bit early to be burying Brewster, isn't it??

    1 ~ The vital importance of an elite Center cannot be overstated.

    2 ~ Koppen is good, but that doesn't make him good enough.

    3 ~ We can win Championships with him...But our chances of doing so would increase significantly with a Nick Mangold or Marquis ~ sorry: I cannot abide "Maurkice" ~ Pouncey.

    Would Brewster ~ or Jones, or Konz, in the extremely unlikely event of his declaring ~ constitute a dramatic upgrade of Koppen or Connolly??

    Too early to say for sure.

    4 ~ But Brewster does show precisely that potential.

    Leave us not forget how hideously awful that none other than our man Nate "Universal" Solder looked in that game against Cali, exactly one year ago.

    Not burying Brewster at all. I would like to see us pick up a young C this upcoming draft. Just don't think we have to use multiple picks to trade up to get him. Should be able to get a good center prospect at 1b or 2a. If he looks good, I'm sure BB will consider him. I just don't think he stands head and shoulders above everyone else like some of our Buckeye fans do. I even like that Molk kid from Michigan. Saw them more last year. Not yet this year. He was downfield blocking all year for Denard Robinson and those screens they liked to run.

    Amen, Brother!

    Seeing TFB do his Dexter impression on opposing defenses is an amazing sight, but he needs to be protected in order to make that happen. Although I’d like to keep Koppen around for depth I think we’d do well to upgrade at Center, and Brewster, Jones, and Konz would be SIGNIFICANT upgrades IMO. Currently Konz is my uber-binkie, I shudder to think what Dante could do with his raw talent.

    With an O-line of Solder, Mankins, Konz, Cannon, and SeaBass we'd easily have the best O-line in the league and one of the best EVER! That kind of lineup can actually make a reality of TFB's wish to play until his 40s.

    Yeah, there's no question that it'd be ridiculous to even think about trading a 1st, a 2nd, and a 3rd for the guy, no matter HOW he turns out.

    I wouldn't've done that even for Pouncey.

    I haven't burned my first Mock, yet, but when I do, Brewster is a prime candidate for #31, #32, or #...40, or wherever the Raiders drop.

    I absolutely LOVE this guys athleticism and his ability to pull and block for the runner. THAT will be essential in running an Old-school Packer sweep, OWNING the field of battle 5-10yds at a shot, absolutely destroying defenses physically and mentally.

    The entire Mich O line is small and built for speed. Similar to the Oregon line. Which is great when they (both teams) don't face talented D linemen. But when they (Org vs Auburn, Org vs Ohio St, Org vs LSU and Mich when they play big d line from the big 10), it doesn't have a chance to survive. They easily get dominated.
    I'll wait 2-3 years for the Mich coach to get back to getting old school Mich O lineman before I ever touch O lineman from the Rich Rod era.

    Seems like teams that can move Koppen, cause us huge problems and give Brady a case of happy feet.
