Curtis Brown scouting report

Curtis Brown CB Texas
Ht: 6’0″

Wt: 185

Strengths:
Good overall speed; plays faster than his timed speed. Looks fairly fluid in coverage; rarely takes misteps and generally capable of matching receivers step for step. Some experience returning punts.
Weaknesses:
Missed time wth a neck injury in 2010. Not a very physical player; hesitant in run support. Tackling ability is limited, due mostly to lack of effort. Better in man than zone coverage; due mostly to lack of experience in zone.
Comments:
In coverage, Brown does everything well but nothing great. He should be a serviceable nickel corner or possibly a starter but will never ascend to elite status. His lack of physical play limits his upside, and may be what keeps him at the nickel position. There’s not a lot to be excited about, but there’s also no reason to think he can’t be serviceable for a team looking to add depth.
