Curtis Brown
Round 3, Pick 95
Position: CB
Class:  4Sr
School: Texas
Conference: Big 12
HT: 5-11.5
WT: 185
40 Time: 4.51
Biography: "Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior, totaling 26/1/7. Averaged 14.9 yards on 13 punt returns last year. Junior totals included 53/1/15."

Positives: "Fundamentally sound cornerback who has good quickness. Fluid moving in reverse, can flip his hips and loses nothing in transition. Displays a burst of speed, drives to the ball out of his plant, and quickly breaks to the play. Gets vertical and contorts to defend passes. Effective facing the action. Gives effort against the run."

Negatives: Slow to react on occasion. Gets out-positioned and beaten by opponents. Lacks top end speed.

Analysis: Brown offers a lot of skills for the next level and offers terrific fundamentals. He lacks great speed but will be very effective backed off the line of scrimmage or in a zone system. Brown could see action in nickel or dime package as a rookie and eventually develop into a starter.

Projection: 3rd
