2012 NFL Draft Watchlist: Mike Brewster

Patriots Mike Brewster

Mike Brewster has the skill and tenacity to make the jump to the NFL as a rookie.

While Brewster will be without his head coach and a few high-profile teammates, there are still quite a few instances to see the bruising center in action.

A September 17th battle with Miami (FL) will feature Brewster and fellow 2012 NFL Draft prospect Marcus Forston squaring off. Pair that with a big game against Nebraska and Jared Crick (10/8) and you should have seen all you need to see why Brewster is our top ranked center.

Why the Patriots need him:
If there has been a weak spot on the offensive line over the last few years, it has been dealing with the likes Haloti Ngata and other mammoth tackles. Dan Koppen has performed very well with his line calls, but there might be some room for improvement at the position – especially with Koppen’s contract running out after 2012.

Why you should watch him:
Brewster is a finisher. He plays hard every play and is more than willing to take on guys bigger than him – his good pad level and use of leverage allows him to win most of the battles. Experience in an offense with a lot of moving parts will also be a plus.

If Brewster can clean up a couple of minor things in pass protection, he could easily be selected in the first 50 picks in the 2012 NFL Draft.
