OverviewStrengthsWeaknessesBottom Line
2014: Played in 11 games with six starts, mostly at guard. 2013: Played in all 12 games, starting the final five games at RT. 2012 (at Georgia Military College): Named a second-team NJCAA Football All-American. Started all 11 games and did not allow a sack. 2011 (at Georgia Military College): Did not qualify academically to play Division I football and was forced to attend GMC. Started all 10 games.
High School: Graduated from Westover High School in 2011. Did not begin playing football until his junior season.
Has very long arms and meat hooks for hands. Can jar defender with the power in his hands and has very good upper-body strength. Uses his length and power to redirect when beaten. Despite his height and lack of bend, still finds a way to get under opponents’ pads and root them off their spot. Potent drive-blocker who finishes. Generally stays engaged with his target. Uses his frame effectively and can play with toughness. Good feet for a man his size and conditioning has improved since he stepped foot on campus two years ago. Finds targets and mashes in short-pull game.
Has stiff knees and butt rides high pre-snap in stance. Will take poor angles when teams try him in the gaps. If beaten, doesn’t have the athleticism to recover. Power-only player and limits what an offense can do. Scouts call him an “inconsistent worker.” Needs players to be squared up and will struggle when they get to his edge. Played just 43 percent of the snaps during 2014 season due to injury and conditioning issues.
Brown has the pure size to block out the sun, and unlike some players with his bulk, he knows how to use it. He can plow holes as a run blocker, but can only play right guard in a power scheme. His lack of playing experience and conditioning concerns could hurt his draft stock.
