Overview

Brown's a physical corner with good size and speed who could find a home as a reserve on a team that plays a lot of bump and run. Uses his length and strength to prevent the free release, can turn and run, but does not possess the hips to prevent separation or the elite recovery speed once beaten off the line. Overall awareness in coverage is not adequate at this time. Ball skills are average. With further development, could be very productive in run support. Brown has enough physical measurables, good intangibles and a short-term memory needed for the league. Currently carries a late-round grade.


Strengths

Brown is a big corner with good speed, comfortable in press man, jamming and re-routing at the line, and turning and running. Hard-nosed player who is willing in run support and will fight for the jump ball. Makes the routine interception. Received multiple accolades while at Colorado for his work ethic.

Weaknesses

Lacks instincts in off-man coverage and zone coverage. Does not have adequate anticipation skills to jump routes. A tick slow sniffing out screens and draws. Slows down in-and-out of breaks while mirroring underneath and intermediate routes. Lacks elite make-up speed. Pursuit angles in run support need to be more consistent.

Grade

4.3
