Draft 2017

Pick No.155

Selected By: Tennessee Titans

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 11 (155)

Pick Analysis: Sometimes an injury to one player opens a door for another. Brown didn't want highly-touted teammate Myles Jack to go out of the lineup, but he did take advantage of the opportunity. He started nine games in 2015 after Jack's injury, leading the team with 93 tackles (two for loss) and breaking up six passes. Brown led the Bruins in stops again as a senior with 105 (seven for loss), garnering first-team All-Pac-12 recognition by also intercepting three passes and breaking up six others. The third of his siblings to play college football (Jason was a linebacker at Idaho, Juwuan a DL at Southern Oregon), Brown had to be patient for his chance to play on defense. He made an impact on special teams, though, winning the team's Rookie of the Year award and honorable mention All-Pac-12 notice with eight tackles. He had six more tackles on special teams as a sophomore in 2014.
