  • Scouting Report Brown is a big offensive lineman and that is both good and bad. You need size to be a D1 recruit at this position, but you can have too much size as well. Brown entered Georgia at around 375 pounds, but he is not down to around 345 pounds. He moved better at that weight and he needs to keep dropping to get down to around 320 pounds. For a guy his size, he bends well and his feet are getting better. He has long arms and he is solid at staying on his blocks. He can lean and get off balance though when engaged with a defender. He needs to work on his agility and feet if he wants to be a tackle on the next level. He may be better suited for the guard position right now. He has really improved though over the past year in body, strength, and technique. He stills needs to get stronger, continue to drop weight, and improve overall from a technical standpoint. He has a good bit of upside, so he is one to keep a close eye on as he continues to develop.
