It was not a good in Indianapolis for Ohio State offensive linemen. After tackle Mike Adams disappointed many with his bench press results, Buckeyes center Michael Brewster is also finding himself on some falling stock reports in the wake of the Combine.
Russ Lande, draft analyst for the Sporting News, gave Brewster low marks for his work in position drills at the Combine, a theme that carried over from the Senior Bowl in January. said Lande:
Brewster's postseason struggles continued in Indianapolis after a bad week in Mobile at the Senior Bowl. He looked stiff and mechanical throughout his workout and was constantly battling to stay over his feet and under control. He did not show the athletic ability NFL teams want in a center. That is why he will likely be a late-round pick if he is drafted at all.
Once seen by some experts as the second-best center in the draft, it comes as a bit of surprise to think that he might not even be drafted.
