Jonathan Brown is a tackling machine with sideline to sideline speed.

A shoulder Injury slowed the 2012 Butkus Award semifinalist last season. He finished 2012 with All-Big Ten honorable mention after a second team selection in 2011.

If Brown (6-1, 235) can stay healthy he may be one of the first LBs selected next spring.
