The 2023 NFL offseason is nearly here and that means it’s time for mock drafts, draft profiles and everything that goes with them. So without further ado, here’s one of many Draft Profiles for the 2023 NFL draft.

Mason Brooks, G, Ole Miss

HT: 6’6
WT: 305 lbs


– 2022 Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List
– 2021 All-C-USA Third Team (PFF)
– 2020 C-USA Honorable Mention
– 2020 All-C-USA First Team (PFF)
– Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (Fall 2022)



– Plays with natural leverage and has the strength to anchor against the bull rush. Brooks also packs a violent initial punch that can stand up pass rushers.
– Has the functional strength to hold up against the bull rush, and Brooks shows exceptionally quick and precise hands.
– Shows excellent awareness when presented with stunts and blitzes, and he works well with teammates on combo blocks
– Hand placement is excellent, and he shows a good understanding of angles when climbing upfield
– Brooks does a nice job working with teammates to build the pocket, anchoring against bull rushers and displaying good awareness against stunts and twists.


– Not great in space and tends to lose power the farther Brooks has to move; he doesn’t finish as well on the second level as he does battle in the phone booth around the line of scrimmage.
– While he probably fits best as a right tackle, he has an outside chance at surviving on the left side for a team with a power-running attack.
– Lets pass rushers get into his body, catching them rather than using his considerable length to deliver a punch. Brooks is going to have some difficulty if he’s asked to block on an island early on.
– He’ll occasionally stop his feet when delivering a punch, and he doesn’t play with ideal balance when moving back into his set. He’ll often struggle to mirror if he can’t win early on passing plays.
