Biography: Two-year starter experienced at defensive tackle and end. Senior totals included 20/2/2.5, when he also intercepted a pair of passes. Junior numbers included a career-best 37 tackles.
Positives: High-motor defensive lineman with marginal upside at the next level. Breaks down well, plays with good pad level, and works hard to get involved in the action. Fluid changing direction, gets down the line of scrimmage and quickly locates the ball. Displays a nice spin move and works his hands to get off blocks.
Negatives: Marginal quickness off the snap. Easily controlled at the point by a single blocker. Minimally productive.
Analysis: Brown is a high-energy player with marginal size for the next level. He has an outside shot to be a backup defensive end in a four-man line, yet he must make his mark on special teams.
