Pick Analysis: The Saints grab a quality offensive tackle with the selection of Charles Brown. With Jammal Brown reportedly on the trading block, Charles Brown gives the team a young developmental prospect to groom for a bigger role in a year or two.

Overview

Brown is a converted tight end that has played on the offensive line for four years at Southern California. He is an athletic lineman that relies on his foot quickness, agility and ability to recover and sustain blocks more than raw power. He should get his first shot on the left side thanks to his athleticism and speed and could develop into a quality starter in time. He does not finish blocks off on a consistent basis and still needs to develop more tenacity and toughness. Brown is a natural knee bender that does a good job of playing under his pads and on his feet.


Strengths

Brown has good height and adequate frame. Has long arms and an effective punch to get inside defenders. He is athletic with a quick first step and lateral agility. Bends knees well to gain leverage. Played in a pro scheme and has good instincts for the game.

Weaknesses

Does not have the necessary bulk and will need to gain weight. Can lunge at defenders and does not have a strong initial surge. Does not play with a mean streak and is inconsistent finishing off blocks.

Grade

8.1
