Class: Sophomore

Stats: ESPN.com

Scouting Report: A standout defender with an adequate offensive game.

 

Strengths:  Lock down defender – Brewer can guard multiple positions and do a great job at it.  Long arms gets him lots of steals.  Decent scorer – can get out on the fast break and finish well.  Good range on his jump shot.  Proved that he can take his game to a higher level in big games.  Decent rebounder for a wing player. 

 

Weaknesses:  Needs to get much stronger physically for the NBA game – 185lbs won’t get the job done on the wing.  May have trouble adding extra weight/muscle due to long wingspan.  Outside shot needs work – has three-point range but doesn’t shoot it for a very good percentage.  Needs to cut down on turnovers and take better care of the ball.     

 

Projected 2007 Draft Range: Top 10 Pick.

 

Consensus:  Brewer’s draft stock has never been higher than it is now after his performance for the Gators in the Final Four.  With a little work on his offensive game – most importantly improving the consistency of his outside jumper – and Brewer can be an impact player at both ends of the floor.  At the very least he should be a rock solid contributor on the defensive end.
