CJ Brewer, a Chanticleers interior lineman who was exceptionally productive, leaves Coastal Carolina after playing in 56 games. Brewer has accumulated 141 tackles over that time, 32 TFLs, 16 sacks, 6 passes defensed, 5 forced fumbles (3 recoveries), an interception, and even rushed for a first down on a fake punt as a senior.
Brewer is entertaining to watch and possesses several skills that will translate to the professional level, including good quickness off the line of scrimmage, an excellent sense of direction, and the ability to make plays once in the backfield.
His speed may be compromised if he gains weight in order to be taken seriously as more than just an inside pass rusher on third down. However, as a late-round draft pick, he would be a tempting choice for a team with a 4-3 defense seeking more inside pocket pressure.
