Biography: Started 10 games as a senior posting 182/749/2 and 19/131/1 as a pass catcher. Used as part of a rotational system the prior year and posted career rushing numbers of 216/1220/20 when he was credited with two starts.
Positives: Well-built, elusive ball-carrier who runs with an aggressive style. Displays good vision, sees the hole and quickly gets through it. Runs low to the ground behind his pads and effectively follows blocks everywhere on the field. Quick footed, makes defenders miss, and weaves his way through the traffic on the inside. Shows a good degree of patience in his running, resilient and a tenacious blocker downfield when necessary. Solid receiver out of the backfield.
Negatives: Shows a burst of speed yet cannot beat defenders into the open field or run to daylight. Not a back who breaks a lot of tackles on the inside.
Analysis: Brown has been a terrific ball-carrier at Oklahoma, sharing the duties in the backfield. He offers a complete game and has all the skills to be a productive second back for an NFL team.
