Height: 6'1.25", Weight: 252 lbs
Strengths: Outstanding size. Very physical tackler who uses his size well. Brown excels going downhill and attacking the run. Shows good football instincts, especially against the run. Hits hard.
Brown is also an experienced player. He started for three years at Louisville and is very intelligent, especially on the field. A real "QB of the defense."
Weaknesses: He plays a bit tight. Can't play man coverage against athletic TEs and is not good dropping deep behind the LoS or covering a large zone. Basically just struggles in pass coverage.
Another knock on Brown is that he sometimes lacks motivation.
Bottom Line: Very aggressive player who hits with a lot of pop. Loves big collisions and demonstrates good intelligence and football instincts. Paired with his experience he excels at the 'Mike' position. Really needs to be paired with a demanding position coach who can motivate him.
Player Comparison: Aaron Maybin
Projected Round: 5-6. A bit difficult to peg as a few think he could go in the third or fourth round.
Team(s) He Fits Best On: Titans
