Brown DE Florida State #99
|Elite athlete for an defensive lineman.
Excellent pass rusher; has the speed and quickness off the snap to blow past offensive
linemen but also has a nice array of moves. Fundamentals and overall technique
are advanced for an underclassman. Showed steady improvement throughout his career.
|Needs to bulk up to play defensive
end on a 4-3 system. Struggles against bigger, stronger offensive linemen when
playing the run. Probably best suited to move to linebacker in a 3-4 system. Wasn't
a full-time starter until 2008 (started eight games in 2007 and three in 2006).|
|If Brown lands in
the right system he could make an instant impact. His strength is as a pass rusher,
but he gives good effort on run plays and shows the desire to become a polished
all-around player. His rating as an outside-linebacker for a 3-4 team should be
10-15 spots higher than as a defensive end in a 4-3 system. |
