Cowboys bulk up with Brewster


Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

NEW YORK -- The Cowboys are currently having a great fifth round. Only problem is we're still in the third. With the 75th pick overall, the Cowboys selected Ball State offensive tackle Robert Brewster (6-4, 325). Scouts Inc. has him listed as the 22nd best offensive tackle and the 180th best player overall. I'm not saying Scouts Inc. is always right, but they usually have a pretty good idea of what's going on. Brewster showed up at Ball State weighing 360 pounds, but he quickly lost a lot of weight.

He has been described as "fleshy" because of all the weight loss. The positive thing is that he is a versatile player. I think the Cowboys may project him as a swing guard, and he could potentially challenge Kyle Kosier for the starting spot at left guard. Brewster dealt with tragedy during college when his high school sweetheart died three days after giving birth to their son.
