An outstanding pass protector. Very light, nimble feet with a very good kick slide and a technically sound base. Keeps elbows in in pass protection. Uses his extremely long arms (35 1/4) and large hands (11 3/8) well to shield defenders from his body. Tremendous balance and ability to shift his body to mirror a defender. Athletic enough to pull and block. Gets to the second level quickly and usually finishes blocks in the run game. Underrated ability to move people the way he wants them to go. Pretty smart and aware of his surroundings (Wonderlic was 24).
Only an average run blocker. Kind of skinny, especially in the lower body. Doesn’t get great leverage in run game and isn’t a road grader by any means. Inconsistent ‘mean streak’ and knee bend. Can be lazy at times.
Brown has a ton of potential as both a run and pass blocker if he can get a coach to motivate him. He needs to hit the weight room to really be a force. Most teams would probably trust him to block the QB’s blindside because of his pure natural ability to do so. Started at USC as a tight end.
Two year starter at left tackle for USC.
