    Looks very good in the Senior Bowl. 6'2" 220lb. Looks very fast. Can catch the ball out of the backfield. Where the hell has this kid been the last 4 years? Looks a little like a young
    Ottis Anderson. Before Ottis got fat. Checked out when he was recruited out of hs. Rivals
    had him as a 4star. 5tops. So, that's a pretty high ranking. If he falls to the 3rd round.
    Either our pick or supplemental pick. I think he might be someone to consider.

    From Todd McShay:

    Word is, round three, to a strong run blocking team.

    NC State was awful post-Rivers, so Brown may have been the victim of a poor supporting cast.

    Brown's been injured a lot so he hasn't played a lot of snaps. He looked great tonight. In fact, he looked like the best RB out there on both teams.

    I've tried to keep an eye on him this year and have been impressed with his consistency and his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. My only concern, Pats-wise, is that they already have a bunch of downhill runners. Do they add Brown to the stable, or look for a quicker RB/KR like Devin Moore?

    Andre Brown is currently ranked as a 3rd/4th round pick.

    Here are the negatives that NFLDraftScout says about this kid:



    Half those things are what people complain about for Maroney. Running tall. Dancing. Inconsistent catching. Injury Flag as well.

    A few too many blemishes for my taste.

    On the positive side, caught 29 passes for NC State this year. That's more than Benjamin Watson this year. :eek:
