Brown is a thunderous hitter with a rock solid frame playing the inside linebacker position. Has powerful hands to get off blocks and is relentless in pursuit. The 2019 linebacker plays downhill, squaring his pads before contact and exploding through the hips. He is an extremely secure tackler, stopping the ball carrier right on contact. He just seems to have a nose at shooting the gaps and attacking the play. He rotates his hips well in pass coverage, and shows a lot of patience reading the play and reacting. He trains hard during the offseason, and we would like to see him continue build up his core strength and improve his lateral quickness so he can make even more plays out to the sideline. We expect FBS schools to be interest in Brown during the offseason and to receive a lot of interest for junior days.
