Described by Mike Mayock as a physical freak, four-year starter guard Brandon Brooks was a surprise pick for most Texans fans. Despite being the #5 guard available on many draft boards and possessing what some are calling pro-bowl potential, Brooks was not invited to the NFL Combine but did participate in the East West Shrine game. At a lean, mean 350 lbs, Brooks stunned during practice and was called by many the best NFL prospect at the East West Shrine game. At the Miami, OH University pro day in early April, Brooks ran the 40-yard dash in 4.99 seconds and bench pressed 225 lbs. 36 times, which would have topped David DeCastro’s 34 as the top performance by a guard at the Combine. His pro day vertical leap of 32” exceeded that of even NFL Combine star Dontari Poe. This from a 6’5”, 353 lb. guard, who can play both left tackle and left guard.
