Overview

Brown is a well built cornerback with great speed, but he is a liability in run support. He can run with anybody on vertical routes and quickly closes when the ball is in the air. However, he lacks the hip fluidity to mirror shiftier wide receivers and he will not be a lock down corner at the next level. He misses a lot of tackles by diving at ball carriers and is pushed around by wide receivers and loses contain too often in run support. Brown's top end speed is alluring, but his limitations as a tackler make him a later round pick.


Strengths

Brown has adequate height and bulk with long arms. Possesses very good speed and can stick with receivers on go routes. Well positioned in zone coverage and closes quickly on underneath routes. Uses strong upper body to deliver an effective press. Hard worker that can contribute on special teams.

Weaknesses

Does not show the ability to anticipate routes. Less than smooth back pedal and he is a bit stiff in the hips so he loses speed in transition. Struggles to locate the ball in the air and lacks the ball skills to intercept passes. Not a willing tackler and has very poor technique.

Grade

4.6
