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.
These guys claim to be insiders and super knowledgable yet haven't even updated for the Titans Rams comp pick trade which gives the Rams Rd3(5) pick, which has been official since last Thursday. Talk about phoning it in what a pile of garbage.
Jabrill Peppers would not fit Tampa's defense. He is a safety, but the certain safety that would be compatible with their defense. The Bucs had a guy similar to him in Mark Barron who is now with the Rams, because he did not fit the defense. The Bucs taking Peppers would be dumber than trading up for Roberto Aguayo, IMO.
