Bio: 
Graduate transfer who started for the first time in his career in 2017 and lasted six games before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. Completed 71.1 percent of his passes for 997 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. Played in 18 games during his four seasons at USC and completed 62 percent of his passes for 650 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Pos: 
Well-traveled quarterback who shows flashes of ability but little consistency. Possesses excellent size and a next-level arm and throws a nice deep ball. Goes through progressions, does not make receivers wait on the pass and launches downfield throws. Puts touch on throws when necessary and displays a sense of timing. Shows the ability to get outside the pocket and make throws on the move while keeping his eyes downfield.
Neg: 
Indecisive and often late pulling the trigger. Cannot escape the rush and won’t pick up yardage with his feet. Was very streaky throughout his career.
Analysis: 
Hopes were high for Browne two seasons ago when he took over for Cody Kessler at USC, but his starting job was short-lived and he was sent to the bench in favor of Sam Darnold. Browne again disappointed last year and started just five of the six games he played. He possesses next-level size and arm strength but needs a lot of work on his game before he will have any chance of stepping on the field in the NFL.
