BIO: Three-year starter and an All-Conference selection since his sophomore campaign. Named as an All-America the past two seasons. Awarded the Outland Trophy in .04, handed to the nation.s best interior lineman.
POSITIVES: Big, athletic tackle built for the right side. Quick into blocks, displays good hand punch, and easily rides opponents from their angle of attack. Gets out to the second level and walls linebackers from the action. Powerful, easily controls opponents or turns them from the action. Patient in pass protection, anchors at the point and stays low throughout the action. Mentally alert, works well with teammates, gets movement from run blocks when focused.
NEGATIVES: Does not consistently attack run-blocking assignments. Controls opponents, yet does more steering than actual finishing. Heavy-legged and not effective in motion. Could improve his hand placement.
ANALYSIS: An athletic prospect with terrific upside potential, Brown projects well to the next level. Has first-round potential and could be a productive lineman for a long time to come if he develops a mean streak.
