Is Robert Brewster a Key to the Cowboys Draft?

Robert Brewster, the Cowboys’ 2009 third-round draft pick out of Ball State, was drafted as an offensive tackle.  After tearing his pectoral muscle last offseason, however, Brewster never got playing time or practice reps at tackle.
The team stated a few weeks ago that it would try Brewster out at guard, but there are now rumors that he will actually remain at tackle.
The future position of this second-year player is important,  because it could determine which path Dallas takes in the upcoming draft.  If they view him as the eventual successor to Kyle Kosier or Leonard Davis inside, then perhaps they will look to draft an offensive tackle in round one.  Doing so might require that the Cowboys move up to the early 20’s.
On the other hand, if Brewster is seen as best-suited to play outside, then Idaho’s Mike Iupati or Florida’s Maurkice Pouncey may be on the Cowboys’ radar as versatile interior linemen.
