Jets selected Kent State OG Brian Winters with the No. 72 overall pick.
Winters (6-4, 320) made 50 starts at Kent State and has a decorated wrestling background, which comes in handy in the trenches. Primarily a left tackle in college, Winters' 32 3/4-inch arms will kick him inside to guard. He blocks with a brawler's aggression and should have little trouble with the position switch. The Kent State product could immediately challenge for a starting job and his nastiness in the trenches will not go unnoticed. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 09:11:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora writes Kent State T Brian Winters could sneak into the first-round.

"There is an outside shot he creeps to the back of the first round, though I hear the most buzz at the top of the second round. The Bills, Cardinals and 49ers all scheduled late visits with him, sources said, which is usually a sign of intent," La Canfora writes. It seems that there's a lot of buzz about Winters, as only a few days ago Russ Lande said Winters could go in the second-round too.

National Football Post's Russ Lande writes Kent State T Brian Winters could go in the second or third round.

"Although Winters’ aggressiveness at times gets him trouble as he will stop his feet, over-extends and loses block, that same attitude enables him to drive man off the LOS on in-line run blocks and to torque DL off their feet with surprising ease," Lande writes about Winters as a possible guard. "Many offensive linemen have received more press than Winters, but I expect that Winters will be drafted before many of them and likely selected in the second or third round."

Kent State T Brian Winters has a private workout with the Tennessee Titans on March 8.

Winters worked out at his pro day and is being considered as a guard at the next level. After the workout, Winters said, "It [the combine] was a letdown, I was really looking forward to it, especially coming from the school I (come) from. I was excited to turn heads and put up good numbers. But I came here, it was the same crowd (of scouts) and I felt comfortable with all the guys on my team and had a good day." Offensive line coaches from the New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens were at Winters' pro day.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl "caught word" that Kent State OL Brian Winters "looked good" during his Pro Day workout.

The work out was "heavily attended by NFL personnel," according to Weidl. Winters is a "solid day 2 pick and an eventual starting" guard, Weidl added. We love his mean streak and aggressiveness, but Winters will have to make the move from left tackle to guard.

Kent State OT Brian Winters is projected to go into the second-round by some scouts.

"He's one that O-line coaches are going to fall in love with," a scout said to Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn. "They'll see how nasty he is. He will be inside in the NFL and he won't have to play on the edge anymore. He has enough athleticism to play in there. He goes in the second round without question."

Kent State OL Brian Winters will attend the Senior Bowl.

We love this invitation, as Winters is a brawling blocker. He is currently playing left tackle for the Golden Flashes but may move inside or to right tackle in the NFL. His one on one position drills will be fun to watch in Mobile.
