Zach Brown   #53 LB

Height: 6-1   Weight: 250   Age: 28

Born: 10/23/1989 Beaufort , SC

College: North Carolina

Experience: 7th season

High School: Wilde Lake HS [Columbia, MD]; Hargrave Military Academy [Chatham, VA]









Draft 2012

Pick No.52

Selected By: Tennessee Titans

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 20 (52)

Pick Analysis: Brown might be one of the fastest straight-line linebackers to ever enter the NFL draft, making him one the most intriguing prospects of this class. He has shown sprinter-like speed on the field and should rack up tackles in the NFL. Brown projects best as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme, though he would likely succeed at any linebacker position. There are many questions about Brown’s game, including whether he can adapt to the NFL after being able to make plays with minimal effort in college. Ultimately, though, he has yet to scratch the surface of his true potential; with his size and speed, he won’t be drafted any later than in the first round.
