Pos: 
Short, explosive defensive lineman who could be used at the three-technique spot. Fires off the snap with a great first step, plays with tremendous pad level and consistently gets leverage on opponents. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself and disengage from blocks, easily changes direction and moves well laterally. Quickly collapses down the line to pursue the run. Agile, displays speed in both a straight line and laterally and possesses a closing burst to the action.
Neg: 
Lacks natural power despite his size and gets knocked back off the line on running downs. Slow to locate the ball at times.
Analysis: 
Brown entered the season graded as a potential sixth-round selection but never elevated his play in 2018. He's a short, sawed-off defensive tackle with above-average athleticism, but he has growth limitations. He doesn't possess the power to be used as a pure nose tackle but could line up as a three-technique lineman or play on the nose in certain one-gap systems. Brown has enough ability to play Sunday football but must quickly elevate his game to make it out of camp this summer.
