BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who also saw action with the first team as a freshman. All-Conference selection as a junior and named as
a freshman All-American in 2006. Totals last season included 36/21.5/13.5 after 36/11.5/6.5 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: "Explosive pass-rushing defender who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Displays tremendous quickness, and
explodes off the snap with a great first step. Fires up the field, plays with good pad level, and shows a tremendous burst
of closing speed. Immediately changes direction and loses no momentum when he must alter his angle of attack. Shows the ability
to anticipate the snap and gets a jump on blockers. Terrific athlete who moves well on his feet and makes plays in all directions
of the field. Fast off the edge and effective in back side pursuit."
NEGATIVES: "Lacks strength, struggles getting off blocks and handled by tight ends. May be a liability against the run at the next level."
ANALYSIS: "Brown is an impact defender who creates opportunities for his team by forcing opponents into mistakes. Consistently doubled
and the focus of offensive linemen, he takes over games with the ability to beat blockers off the snap and disrupt the action.
Brown offers the athleticism and speed to stand up over tackle at outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment, yet he also possesses
the growth potential to eventually grow into a defensive end. One of the better defensive prospects in this draft, he should
be selected in the top half of round one and offers a large degree of upside."
