Brandon Brooks, G, Miami (Ohio)

Brooks is a 6'5'', 346-pound mammoth offensive lineman, who after not being invited to the combine, is certainly gliding under the radar.

However, he won't be overlooked come draft time.

I admittedly have not seen a ton of his tape, but I know his pro day workout drew rave reviews earlier this week and can cite one credible draft outlet's scouting report.

Sportsxchange.com had this to say about the Redhawks' star trenchman:

Has good natural strength and raw power with the ability to be a mauler in the run game. Plays with a firm base with a stout anchor, holding his ground at the point of attack. Keeps his pad level low and flashes consistent leverage. Stays balanced and patient in his stance. Has overpowering upper body strength to overwhelm and eliminate defenders from the play. Jolts with his hands and shows a strong initial push. Quick off the snap and moves well for his size. Offers versatility with experience at left tackle and both guard spots.

He'll be a likely option in the third or fourth round for a team looking for a versatile offensive lineman that seems to be NFL-ready. Seems like he has some Carl Nicks to him, doesn't he?
This is not the type of player Shanny wants for his line. Since he has a ZBS, he wants smaller, quicker linemen that are more athletic. This would not be a good fit for our system.

Re: Redskins agree to trade for No.2 overall pick in 2012 Draft

Seems to me we'd reached the point where we couldn't put off the QB thing any longer. Given that, I'm fine with doing whatever we had to do to get the best (or one of the best) available. Comparing this trade to others is hard because of the unique needs, competing interests, and talent available. Yes, it's a high price. But if you are starving, you pay a lot more for food than you do when you're full. That's life.

I am excited for RGIII, and I'm going to stop (or not start) with the "that pick of the skins turned into PLAYER X, the greatest player ever!" Hindsight is 20/20. They needed a QB and got the best they could--should they have gone with a bargain and a prayer here? Haven't we done that for years?

Now let's go get some protection and some weapons for our new leader! And once again, Skins win the offseason! Let's hope this one works out.

Basic economics. Supply was low (there's only 1 RG3). Demand was high (multiple teams wanting to trade up to #2, the Browns specifically). That tells you the price is going to be high. People can compare the Chargers/Giants trade but in reality they do not compare because the Giants were in a one team competition. It's comparing apples to oranges.

Nothing about his description says he wouldn't be a good fit for our system unless you think quick off the snap and moves well for his size or has overwhelming strength to overwhelm and eliminate defenders from the play or offers versatility to play any position on the line in case of injury is not a good fit for a guard on this team.

Re: Redskins agree to trade for No.2 overall pick in 2012 Draft

I totally agree with this move. Our biggest gap in the entire organization is at QB and with this move we are guaranteed to get one to franchisee QB coming out of college. On paper we should be set at QB for the next 12 years. Now we utilize our other picks and free agency to strengthen up our next gaps at WR, OL, & CB.

HTTR!!!

What happens if RGIII decides to go to law school and give up on the NFL in a couple of years.

Then your franchise will be in deep doo-doo.

It's not about his skill set. It's about his size. Shanny does not typically have huge, hulking 340 pound linemen. He likes smaller, quicker ones. Just because his scouting report says he is quick off the snap, he's still quick off the snap for a 340 pound linemen. That's most likely not as quick as a smaller, more agile lineman.

Damn it, you figured out the Giants plan. They knew they could lose both the Skins and still get into the play-offs so they laid down for the Skins to hurt their draft position.

Winning cost us 2 first rounders and a second. Never thought about it like that until now. Now that's interesting and a shame almost

We got hosed. Huge overeach. Shanny and Bruce figure they will be gone in a year or two anyways, so who cares about losing the future first rounders is their thought process.

We need Brandon Marshall to salvage this already devastating offseason...

Re: Redskins agree to trade for No.2 overall pick in 2012 Draft

The price was high, but I don't have a big problem with it. The market sets the price and there were other teams that would have ended up stepping up and paying the same thing, or something very close to it.

If you believe he's a rare talent that can elevate the franchise for the next decade, my thought on it all offseason has been go big or go home. I think the time was right to make this move. We have the cap room now to surround him with established talent, and Allen is crafty at wheeling and dealing in the draft to acquire more picks.

RGIII will put butts in the seats, create buzz on and off the field, and he gives us a legit potential superstar QB for the first time in forever.
