Donald Brown RB Connecticut #34

Ht: 5'10
Wt: 210

Adequate size. Decent quickness and agility. Has excellent vision. A patient runner; waits for holes to open, but doesn't dance around too much. A reliable receiver out of the backfield.
Doesn't have breakaway speed. Strength is marginal; doesn't break many tackles. A below average blocker. Didn't face any elite defenses in the Big East; hasn't been tested.
Brown was a very average running back his first two years at UConn, but experienced a breakout season in 2008. His success will earn him a shot at the next level, but he lacks the measurables to project as much more than a mid-second round pick. His doubters will bring up the fact that he may be a product of Connecticut's system, which has produced some successful collegiate runnings back who have failed in the NFL. He's in a similar position to UCF's Kevin Smith in 2008; scouts can't ignore his collegiate stats, but he hasn't faced enough elite defenses to prove that he is capable of producing on the same level in the pros.
