As a sophomore in 2021 he played in 13 games and logged 763 snaps for the Knights. He made 26 tackles, 8 assists, and had 11 stops. In coverage he totaled 7 pass breakups, one interception, and QB rating when targetted of 62.1.

He logged just 8 tackles, no assists, and made 2 stops. In coverage Brown had one pass breakup, no interceptions, and surrendered QB rating when targetted of 64.3.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
  • Fluid mover with decent speed and his length allows him to cover effectively downfield
  • Extremely aggressive to come up and put his body in traffic to make tackles.
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
  • Long and lean and a very fluid mover. Brown shows good route recognition and the ability to transition out of his backpedal and close on the ball fast.
  • Has quick feet and excellent change-of-direction ability, capable of mirroring quickness underneath.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Might not be the kind of pure shutdown corner that the top prospects in this draft have the skill set to become, but offers scheme versatility and the ability to slide inside and cover the slot.
  • Is undersized and underpowered when lining up in press coverage. Brown simply lacks power in his punch.
  • Fails to maintain inside technique in man coverage. Not a press corner.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
