  • Charles Brown Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

  • Good height and length
  • Thick mass in lower body
  • Very good athleticism
  • Smooth lateral agility
  • Shows high ability to mirror opponent in pass protection
  • Very quick first step
  • Textbook hand use and footwork
  • Extremely polished prospect
  • Great job finishing blocks; a bit of a mauler
  • Underrated run blocker
  • Understands angles and seals off
  • Natural knee bender; sinks hips
  • Good awareness and instincts
  • Can recover if beat
  • Quickly gets to second level
  • Has talent to pass protect on left side
  • Prototypical zone-blocking lineman
  • Understands West Coast protection scheme
  • Highly consistent
  • Focused; seldom penalized

  • Lacks some serious upper body strength
  • Lacks mass in arms/chest/torso
  • Is his frame maxed out? Is he a bulked-up former tight end?
  • Occasionally overextends; must be more patient
  • Weak hand punch

    Summary: The weigh-ins for Brown at the Senior Bowl and Combine are CRITICAL. If he can't hit the 300-pound mark it is likely that he is destined for the second round much like 2009's William Beatty. Brown has the talent and consistency of a top-20 pick, but I really wonder how much bigger can he get and maintain as a comfortable playing weight. Brown is a great fit for teams like Green Bay, New England, and Oakland that use zone-blocking schemes that emphasize athleticism, mobility, intelligence and technique. Brown is a bad fit for teams that love size such as Dallas, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati.

    Player Comparison: Jordan Gross. Brown isn't going to be an elite player like Gross, but he is an average-sized tackle who has outstanding technique and plays with physicality.
