Andre Brown RB 6' 224 North Carolina St. 4.49

By: Robert Davis

Brown showed a lot of potential as a freshman, rushing for 667 yards and six touchdowns in 2005. He didnít quite breakout like many expected but he still ran for 658 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore. A foot injury limited him to just six games as a junior, but he still managed to rush for 447 yards and five touchdowns, while catching 25 passes for 194 yards. Brown finished his Wolfpack career with a career high 728 rushing yards and six scores on the ground to go along with 28 catches for 305 yards and two touchdowns.

Strengths

Brown has good size, and has the ability to carry the ball between the tackles. He shows good initial quickness, and the ability to cutback and make the first defender miss. He is at his best running between the tackles and picking up yardage after contact. Brown has developed into a quality receiver, which is a skill that could help him out a lot in the NFL.

Weaknesses

Brown has a lot of wasted motion in his running style. He needs to be more decisive and hit a hole instead of dancing around. He also lacks the long range speed and elusiveness to be much of a big play threat. Brown has good size, but he may need to get stronger in his lower half as he looks very lean in his legs. There are also some durability concerns with Brown, as he broke his foot in 2007 and has twice had surgery since to heal the injury.

Future

Brown has a lot of potential, but there are quite a few negatives to his game. If he can get stronger in his lower half, Brown could be a surprise in the NFL. That added power could be the difference to him making it or being cut. He has the quickness to make the first guy miss and has potential as a receiver, so if he can become a powerful interior runner, he could be quite a find in the draft. Brown did a very good job showcasing his talents at the combine, and improved his stock. He ran an excellent 40 time of 4.49 seconds, and showed that he is one of the most impressive blends of size, strength, and speed at the RB spot in this draft.
