HEIGHT:
 6'4"

WEIGHT: 321 lbs

       

POSITIVES

—A much better run defender than he is as a pass-rusher.

—Gap-shooter in the run game, not just a space eater.

—Strong enough to transition his bull rush into a shuck move as a pass-rusher.

—Has some bend for his size. Looks like an average to above-average athlete on film.

—Solid tackler, even on the perimeter, which may go back to his years as a defensive end.

—Has the potential to make plays behind the line of scrimmage when his legs are fresh.

       

NEGATIVES

—Legs run dry quick, as there are times late in drives where he has no juice on consecutive plays.

—Up and down motor, which comes with playing north of 320 pounds.

—Effort is potentially a question, depending on how you see his motor and conditioning issues.

—Overruns plays in terms of his run fits, allowing for wider cutback lanes for ball-carriers.

OVERALL

Bobby Brown might not be able to play a starter's share of reps in year one of his NFL career, but he has penetration skills that are rare for a 321-pound defensive tackle. Early on in his career, his upside is as a pressure nose, but if he is able to build on his athleticism, he has the potential to develop into a rare nose tackle who can get after the quarterback on top of being able to eat double teams.

The former blue-chip recruit only spent three years at Texas A&M and won't turn 21 until after he's drafted, making him a prime target as a developmental interior lineman.
