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.
