Bryant Browning Signs W/ Broncos

@NFLDraftInsider is reporting on twitter that Bryant Browning, OG, Ohio State has agreed to terms with the Broncos. I've heard Browning is a solid player, but sadly do not know very much about him. I know, surprising right? So because of this, here is a scouting report via

Ohio State University's Bryant Browning is an interior lineman prospect with NFL-ready size, plenty of experience and is a talented run-blocker. Browning isn't a flashy prospect and while he is a solid college lineman, there weren't enough big improvements in his game over the last two seasons to qualify him as a must-get player.

Browning was on the preseason watch list for the Outland Trophy and was named to the All-Academic Big Ten team.

He lacks the athleticism to be a pulling guard and is best suited for a run-oriented offense. His size is right where NFL scouts want it to be, but he isn't particularly strong and doesn't have that nasty streak where he really goes after his opponents.

Browning is an adequate pass-blocker, but often plays too upright and can be pushed back into the pocket. He doesn't get off the ball quickly which can lead to more athletic defenders beating him to the point of attack.

He is a developmental prospect who could progress into quality reserve lineman if he continues to work at the finer techniques of the position.

Browning projects as a seventh round pick or an undrafted free agent in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Sounds like a good pickup to me...
