Biography: 2009 Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the year after passing totals of 63.7%/1254/23/9. Started six games as a junior and finished with 61.7%/2030/15/3. Began his college career at Richmond.

Positives: Smart, well-sized quarterback whose game is on the rise. Displays nice pocket presence, does a tremendous job commanding the offense and competes hard. Displays a sense of timing, takes the safe underneath outlet, and almost always makes proper decisions. Remains poised under pressure, stands in against the rush, and buys as much time as necessary for receivers. Senses the blitz and quickly gets rid of the ball. Accurate, puts passes where only his receivers can make the reception, and effectively puts touch on throws when necessary.

Negatives: Cannot drive the deep pass and long throws tend to float. Really must force the issue when trying to get speed on passes.

Analysis: Brown is a quarterback who's really taken off the past season and a half. He offers a good amount of upside, and many of his arm strength problems are due to poor mechanics. He's a solid developmental prospect who could eventually grow into a number two quarterback at the next level.

Projection: 6-7
