Positives: Athletic college quarterback who beats opponents with his arm and legs. Possesses a strong arm, can power the ball through tight spots and also puts touch on throws when necessary. Patient in the pocket, goes through receiver progressions and quickly locates the open receiver. Displays good running vision as well as instincts when he carries the ball. Always a threat to pick up yardage with his legs.
Negatives: Late with throws and frequently high of the mark or behind receivers. Does not really sense the pass rush.
Analysis: Brown is an athletic passer who was able to exploit opponents on the small college level, but he does not have the skills to play the quarterback position in the NFL. He may get looks at running back or receiver and can be used as an option quarterback in the red zone.
