MARK BROWN
Position: ILB
Class: Sr
School: Auburn
Conference: SEC
Ht., Wt.: 6'0½, 238
40 Time: 4.82
Grade: 3.32

BIO: Led the team in tackles as a senior with 95, also accumulating 7 1/2 tackles for loss and 21/2 sacks. Totaled 55 tackles as a junior when he started at middle linebacker and 34 the prior season when he played four games with the first unit.

POSITIVES: Hard working middle defender best stuffing the run. Forceful up the field, chases sideline-to-sideline and takes good angles to the action. Reads or anticipates the play, patient and snuffs out the ball carrier. Technique tackler.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the quick change of direction, lateral range and best in a straight line. Stiff, gets caught up in the wash laterally and possesses only average speed.

ANALYSIS: Two down defender with limited potential for the next level.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
