Defensive Back Specific Categories
A hard worker and good situational player. Brown probably won’t ever start in the NFL but he can be a great Special Teams player and possibly a nickel/dime back with a creative defensive coordinator. He made the transition from Safety to Linebacker his senior year so he has experience in coverage and stopping the run, and could actually prove to shut down opposing tight ends. Shows great wrap-up technique when tackling and always seems to be in position to make the play, showing great instincts.
Limited athletically, as a safety. Doesn’t have great range and isn’t much of a ball hawk. Ran himself out of the play occasionally, possibly trying to anticipate to make up for his average speed.
Although he will probably never be more than average as a safety in the NFL, he could probably be successful in a limited role and on special teams. Look for him in the last few rounds and expect him to come in and impress people with his hard work and instincts right away.
Special teams experience in all 4 years at Michigan. Played in all 13 games as a sophomore at safety. Started every game his Junior season at Safety. Started all 13 games as a Senior at strong side linebacker.
