What experts are saying:

“Brown has ridiculous speed for his size… This is the kind of freak athlete you acquire for your team and figure out a role for him later… There’s a good chance he never find a niche at all in the NFL.  But his athleticism and bruising mindset make him worth a gamble, a player with much higher than ordinary upside.” Macgregor Wells, SB Nation, March 24, 2017

Rated 14 out of 85 full backs and no. 533 overall on NFL Draft Scout.
