Bio: 
Two-year starter at defensive tackle named Third Team All-ACC after posting 41 tackles (14 for loss) and three sacks in 2016. Junior totals include 40 tackles (6.5 for loss) and two sacks. Made four starts as a sophomore in 2014 after redshirting the prior year due to a season-ending Achilles injury, making 20 tackles (two for loss) with 1.5 sacks.
Pos: 
Short but explosive interior lineman with possibilities as a three technique tackle. Plays with proper leverage and knee bend, keeps his hands active throughout the action and effectively uses them to protect himself. Fires off the snap with a terrific first step, displays power in his lower body and holds the point. Remains disciplined and does more than pin his ears back and rush up the field.
Neg: 
Easily blocked or sealed from the action. Displays limited range, not quick or fast getting down the line of scrimmage or effective in pursuit. Mostly a first step lineman.
Analysis: 
Brown was a solid college defensive lineman but comes with limitations for the next level. His approach and effort will make him an attractive to defensive coaches.
