Breaking down Giants tackle James Brewer
By ESPN.com staff
ESPNNewYork.com's Ohm Youngmisuk has a profile on the Giants' fourth-round draft choice, offensive tackle James Brewer:
Brewer is a right tackle and helped the Hoosiers finish 15th in the nation in fewest sacks allowed with 12. He is a guy that will need development and is considered to be a "late bloomer." Can improve with his strength and technique. Only played one full season for the Hoosiers after missing the 2006 and 2007 seasons while dealing with foot problems. He played in eight games in 2008 but struggled with weight issues before suffering a severely sprained ankle. Brewer started all 12 games in 2009 opposite LT Rodger Saffold but played in nine games in 2010 after dealing with more ankle issues and a leg injury. He was a basketball player in high school and the Giants like his upside.
