Excerpt: "Offensive lineman James Brewer is part of the three-headed competition for the right tackle job with the New York Giants.SHARE (1) (https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fsbn.to%2F1bWEEGY)

We continue our breakdown of the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp with a look at a player we focused on a bit during mini-camp, third-year offensive lineman James Brewer.

2012 Season In Review

Brewer saw his first regular-season action in 2012, albeit limited. He played 34 snaps at right tackle or right guard in five games. The 2011 fourth-round pick was exclusively a tackle in college at Indiana, but has added the ability to play guard to his resume.

Sounds like he sucks. Coaches usually find a way to make the glass half full and if all they can say is he has good days and then has bad days then I'm worried about him.

He will not beat out Diehl or Pugh.

Yet another Message board punching bag, this guy did fine when he was in the games last year.

No he didn't. His technique hasn't improved at all since being here.

Adding to that. Only 34 snaps. The coaches saw problems they weren't comfortable with.

I hope he's improved from 2012.

When Locklear went down, they decided to go with David Diehl, playing on an injured MCL, rather than go with Brewer.

At 6-6 and 330, maybe it was an issue of getting his technique down.....maybe he was just not yet ready for the pro game as a rookie.

This will be his third year, what do u mean at this point in his career?? Everyone always says wait till the 3rd years to judge a draft pick, and u are one of the guys on this board who say that

He'll get plenty of chances in preseason to win us over. And if he isn't up to snuff, he won't be on the roster come late August.

They use that with rookies that they are trying to cover. By year 3 "ups and downs" means not so good.

At this point in his career, I think he is more likely to make the roster as a guard then a tackle. Last preseason he did look like he had serious balance issues. Who knows, maybe he will pull a Corey Webster and turn into a good player in his 3rd year.

I agree. He hasn't shown much promise, especially at tackle. I think they will take a look at him at guard and if they don't like what they see he will find himself unemployed soon. From what I saw he did not have the proper balance and footwork for tackle. 1 thing correctly stated in this article is there are roster spots. We have holes in our guard depth, as well as 2 guards who likely wont be with the team in a year or 2.

I wonder what happens when you are pulling and someone shoves your pads and you fall down like a sack of potatos? That is what training camp is all about..........to sort this stuff out.

The problem is that he isn't a power player. He isn't strong at all. You see it in his technique in that he uses his size to lean into his defender hoping to wall him off instead of actually trying to hold or push him back. I understand he was a project lineman, but his technique looks as if it had not improved since college.
