There has never been any doubt that Brown (6-foot-2, 300 pounds) has the size to be an NFL player. The man in the middle of the Temple defensive line has a quick first step and fantastic leg power and drive. He displays a good hand strike when he extends his arms on plays as well. 

As a prospect, he is still very raw, often times looking more interested in bowling through opposing linemen rather than extending his arms to read plays and get off blocks. He also tends to stand up and expose his pads too often, but when he does stay low he is an extremely disruptive player. With coaching through the draft process, Brown could prove to be a good prospect in the 2014 draft.
