    Giants' Roster Breakdown: James Brewer

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/6/19...n-james-brewer

    Excerpt: "Offensive lineman James Brewer is part of the three-headed competition for the right tackle job with the New York Giants.SHARE (1)

    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.

    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.
    Pull down the shade.

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.
    Yes, I think that the G position will accomodate more of a straight ahead power player because you generally play in a tighter box than a T. 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.

    What I mean is that 3 years is too long to have ups and downs in coach speak. They use that with rookies that they are trying to cover. By year 3 "ups and downs" means not so good.

    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.

    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.

    Adding to that. Only 34 snaps. The coaches saw problems they weren't comfortable with.
    I saw a problem when he played T last preseason . . . he stinks
