    The Barwin thread received 100+ posts, so let's get some input on this legitimate Pats prospect. NE has worked out Barwin, Everette Brown, and now Cody for the same position. All three are ranked differently, and give Belichick options of filling the position should he miss out on his #1 choice.

    I like him a lot, as I have him ranked 3rd on my DE/OLB list.

    NFL Events: Combine Player Profiles - Cody Brown

    Looks like a pretty good prospect as an edge rusher. I'm not sure about his all around game, but that could be said of any of the OLB prospects. He looks like someone with less bust potential than a Barwin, Johnson or Matthews.

    I grade him as an upper 3rd round player with potential to move up into the mid 2nd if there's a run on pass rushers. I think he becomes a very possible Pats target if they decide to address the lines early.

    He seems to be moving up, I think we'd have to use one of our 2s for him.

    Just a friendly reminder to keep him on the list of considerations. We don't know how the draft is going to unfold, and if NE doesn't address DE/OLB in round one, later options are necessary.

    Good, the more the merrier. I keep wondering if some of the DE/OLB guys could become and ILB a la T Bru???

    That would be a huge reach. He's not nearly as explosive as the other OLBs we've been talking about. Fourth round seems about right.

    I really like Cody Brown. I was hoping BB was @ Uconn to take a look at him. A little undersized, but the kid is a hard worker and knows how to get into the backfield.

    He would be a SOLID pick up if NE decided to go OL, S, with the first two picks.

    6'2" 245# seems like he needs a bit more sand in his pants (thanks, Box) to be a good OLB, but who knows?

    That said, as someone noted on the UConn pro day thread, apparently BB saw something that really intrigued him about the DBs.

    [And, FWIW, I think the Huskies' sophomore LB, Scott Lutrus, might look good in a Pats uniform in a couple of years.]

    Haven't seen him play much, but I think he'd be worth a shot as the 3rd compensatory pick. Nothing about him stands out to me all that much, though. My dos centavos.

    The one knock I didn't like reading about Brown was a report that he doesn't hustle after plays outside his area. Otherwise I'm fine with him at #58 and later if NE doesn't get another OLB earlier.

    Agreed. I like him, but there's a lot of prospects that are prob better at the position. No earlier than 58.

    Do not have extensive knowledge of Cody Brown, but I don't feel his being 6-2 is a limiting factor. What I have read says that he has abnormally long arms, which would indicate he has the ability to keep blockers off his chest.

    For example, Chad Brown and Greg Lloyd are 6-2, and James Harrison is 6-0. Rosevelt Colvin is 6-3. They are not prototype height ala Mike Vrabel, yet they are effective players.

    It's nice to know there are options beyond the top few rounds, should Cody Brown be there in the 3rd. I do feel the Pats will draft a linebacker of some kind.

    I've got to think that they'll use one of the first four picks at LB.

    Probably good value with our 3rd round compensatory pick.
