BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter at both linebacker and safety. All-Conference selection as a senior after posting career-high tackling numbers of 106/11/2.5. Sat on the sidelines in 2006 with a knee injury. Junior-year totals included 73/11.5/3.
POSITIVES: Swift, athletic safety who's at his best making plays up the field. Breaks down well, fluid turning his hips, and displays good lateral movement skills. Fast to the flanks, covers a lot of area on the field, and shows speed in every direction. Works hard and is well-respected.
NEGATIVES: Slowed by blocks and handled by tight ends. Marginally effective in coverage and usually a half-step late arriving on the scene.
ANALYSIS: Brown is a physical defender with a good combination of size and speed. He offers possibilities as a conventional strong safety.
