Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 34 tackles (4.5 for loss) with two sacks and three pass breakups in 2016. Recorded 33 tackles (4.5 for loss) with two sacks as a junior. Started one game in 2014 and finished with 21 tackles on the year. Redshirted in 2013 after suffering a season-ending foot injury.
Pos: 
Serviceable defensive line prospect with poor size and speed numbers. Fires off the snap, keeps his feet moving and chases the action hard. Displays good change of direction, effectively makes plays in the open field and can be relied upon to drop off the on zone blitzes. Works his hands throughout the action, breaks down well and gives effort defending the run.
Neg: 
Lack of height is a problem, as he’s overwhelmed at the point of attack or driven off the line. Not much of a factor as a pass rusher.
Analysis: 
Brown is a solid one-gap defensive lineman with possibilities as a backup three-technique tackle.
