Has the power to push most college defensive linemen past the play once they gain a step, but he won’t be able to do the same in the NFL. Isn’t the type of run blocker you would expect from a guy his size. Gets a bit overextended into blocks, fails to keep his feet under him and doesn’t generate much of a pop on contact. Lacks ideal balance through the play and will fall off blocks easily at times. Exhibits average coordination on the move and can break down in space, but isn’t overly rangy when asked to get out to the second level.
Impression: Is a big body, but isn’t real impressive in the run game and looks more like a free agent type guy to me."
Positive: Relatively athletic, wide-bodied lineman who is best in pass protection. Quickly sets up off the snap, stays square, and seals opponents from the action. Immediately gets his hands into defenders and jolts defenders at the point of attack. Keeps his feet moving, works to bend his knees, and keeps his head on a swivel.
Negative: Narrow based blocker who lacks balance. Rarely finishes blocks or gets movement run blocking. Seems tentative blocking in motion.
Analysis: Browning possesses NFL size and the body type to be used as an interior lineman at the next level. Must improve his blocking mechanics and run blocking skills but has a chance."
Negatives: Gets beat by speed... Allows smaller quicker defenders under his pads... Marginal lateral range... Wobbles moving laterally, stiff... Will get too upright and bend at the waist... Has trouble re-setting his feet... Marginal balance... Awkward and slow on the move, kind of a plodder in space... Lacks good flexibility and body control... Doesn't break down especially well and struggles to hit moving targets... Leans into blocks... Overextends and loses balance... Appears a bit flabby and poorly conditioned."

Strengths: Excellent size for the position, and could even slide out and play RT in a pinch with his long arms and strength. As a run blocker, he gets into the defender quickly with some explosion off the snap and can drive with his legs. Pretty solid in confined areas. Delivers a good initial jolt and uses his hands well to keep the defender from gaining control. Technically sound. As a pass blocker, he can hold his ground at the POA well and has the long arms to redirect the defender. Experienced at both RT and RG at OSU.
Weaknesses: Very poor athlete with questionable balance and agility. Doesn't move his feet very well and really struggles in space. Allows himself to get off-balance too often, letting defenders slide off the block and get past him. Will struggle with edge speed if used on the outside.
Projection: Browning has enough positives to get drafted, but more than enough negatives to ensure it won't happen until late in the proceedings. Could serve a role as a reserve lineman on an NFL team, but has too many uncorrectable liabilities to prevent him from ever being a consistent contributor."
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."
