NFL Draft 2011, Round 4: Giants Select James Brewer, OT, Indiana

The New York Giants selected James Brewer, OT, Indiana in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft on Saturday. The Giants had the 117th overall selection.

Brewer is a 6-foot-6, 323-pound offensive tackle who could possibly have the ability to play on either side of the line. Here is part of Draft Countdown's report on Brewer:

Appears to have the tools to play left or right tackle at the next level --- Supremely talented with tantalizing potential but may not have the intangibles needed to fulfill it --- Classic Boom or Bust prospect who could thrive if he can stay healthy and learn to play with more of a nasty demeanor.

NFL Draft Bible immediately proclaimed the pick "a major steal."

Sounds like the type of high-ceiling long-term project player that Giants' General Manager Jerry Reese seems to love. Brewer would also, again, qualify as tremendous fourth-round value according to draft boards. He was ranked 89th by Draft Countdown and SB Nation's Mocking The Draft ranked him 86th.
