Overview:

Brown had a great career at UCLA, where he played in 48 career games, he had 223 tackles, 9.0 for loss, 3.0 sacks, 3 interceptions, and 12 pass breakups, proving to be a defensive play maker for the Bruins. He has good size, he has good speed, he is very experienced, and is a tough nosed player. He is also good in coverage, he is a sure fire tackler, and a hard hitting linebacker. Also he gets good pressure on the quarterback, and he is a good pass rusher, despite the lack of sacks. He also had a good number of interceptions, and he was good in the pass breakup department. On the other hand, he is not known as a big sack guy, and while he has good speed, he does not have elite linebacker speed, but that does not hurt his game at all. With that said, I view Brown as a day 3 pick, likely in the 4th to 5th round range when it is all said and done.
