Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior with 69/1352/10. Limited to seven games by a shoulder injury as a junior and totaled 45/778/6. Sophomore totals included 64/631/5.
Positives: "Tough, sure-handed receiver with a terrific feel for the position. Quick off the line, immediately gets to top speed, and works his hands to get separation from opponents. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, extends his hands, and offers the quarterback a nice target. Makes the reception away from his frame and quickly transitions from making the catch to running after the reception. Effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents and protect the pass. Makes the tough catch with defenders draped on him. Gets vertical over opponents and high points the ball, winning out in battles. Gives effort blocking."
Negatives: Possesses poor speed and is really nothing more than an underneath receiver. Marginal skill running after the catch.
Analysis: Brown is a natural receiver who is limited by speed. He will be productive as a 3rd/4th receiver in a West Coast/timing offense that does not require him to go vertical.
