As it is, he doesn't really turn backs in at the POA. He kinda drags them down if he has to meet them head on. In the NFL, that's going to be an even bigger problem. I don't think he can be a Middle or Inside LB in the NFL. I think he has to be an OLB and then, only in a 34, probably Weak Side. This is going to cut out a lot of teams from taking him early on. I think that the right team, with the right scheme needs to draft him.
I also like Brown. He is a pure LB with terrific instincts and football smarts for the position. He is always in the right spot at the right time. Actually reminds me of a young London Fletcher.
But, did you get that reversed where you said he is a 34 OLB? Because he is WAY too small for a 34 OLB and is just fine for most 43 OLB positions.
Brown is built at 6-1 and about 235 pounds is pretty much what you'd expect in a 43 defense. In a 34, you're talking the DeMarcus Ware's (6-5 260) and Spencer's (6-3, 265) and he isn't at all built that way.
Pretty much Dallas is the right team with the right scheme that you are talking about. He would be perfect.
