BIO: Two-year starter that posted 34/6/3 as a senior after totals of 34/9/8 as a junior. Lined up at defensive end but projects to linebacker.
POSITIVES: Athletic edge-rushing specialist in college that now must learn to play in space. Fast to the flanks and cuts off the corners in run defense. Plays with leverage, keeps his feet off the initial hit and good movement skills.
NEGATIVES: Undersized and easily stymied at the point of attack at defensive end. Indecisive when dropped off the line into coverage and not quick locating the ball.
ANALYSIS: A competitive and active defender, Brown must now learn an entirely new position. Offers the size-speed numbers one wants in a weak-side linebacker but must prove he can make plays in reverse.
