Report Prepared: February 18, 2012

The first thing you notice about Brown when watching tape is his speed. A member of the track team, he set a school record for the 60 meter dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.40 in the forty. In addition to being very fast, Brown also has great acceleration when blitzing the QB. He had a very solid senior campaign, tallying 5.5 sack, 13.5 TFL, 3 FF and 3 picks. He's the ideal fit as a 4-3 Will. Brown is very adept at dropping into coverage and does a good job of keeping his eyes in the backfield and reading the QB. He should be able to run with most TE's and has great hands for the position. On the downsize, Brown lacks the ideal height and bulk, thus he may struggle to get off blocks from larger O-lineman. His speed can also be a detriment, because he has a tendency to over-run plays. Even with great athleticism, he's still far from a finished product.
