BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons awarded all-Conference honors after each campaign. Senior totals included 43/13.5/8 after 38/14.5/7.5 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Explosive college pass rusher who projects to outside linebacker at the next level. Plays great explosion and immediately alters his angle of attack. Excellent technician with his hands, collapses from the outside making plays to the flanks and moves well laterally. Plays with good pad level, fires through the gaps upfield and shows a closing burst to the action. Instinctive, quickly locates the ball and goes hard for sixty minutes. Flashes ability dropped off the line and playing in space.
NEGATIVES: More of a first move lineman, struggles getting off blocks and handled by opposing tight ends. Runs poorly and will struggle covering tight ends at the next level.
ANALYSIS: Brown displayed significant progress in his game the past two seasons. Productive pinning his ears back and rushing up field, he will now be asked to make plays in reverse on a consistent basis, which will be no easy task.
