BIOGRAPHY: Senior totals included 53 tackles and eight pass defenses, despite struggling through most of the season with a foot injury. Posted 70/1/8 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Explosive cornerback with the ability to shut down opponents. Fluid transitioning off the line, runs downfield with opponents and plays faster than his 40 time. Works well with safeties, locates the pass and quickly breaks to the action.
NEGATIVES: Very quick out of his backpedal and prefers to side-shuffle down the field. Does not always play with his feet underneath him or with balance.
ANALYSIS: Steadily improving cornerback who is rarely challenged by opponents, Brown has shown tremendous skill the past three years. Off-the-field incidents and his foot injury from last year will push him out of the first round, yet he offers starting potential.
