7th Round Pick: Jordan Brown, CB, SDSU

Recommended Posts

From NFL.com


Late bloomer who came to school as a skinny wide receiver with 4.7 speed and leaves with outstanding height, weight, speed measurements and a shot to go on Day 2 as a cornerback. Brown's athletic ability and recovery speed increases his opportunities to make plays and flip the field, but he needs to trust his instincts and sharpen his eyes. If a coach can improve his assertiveness against big ball-winners, he has the physical and play traits to become one of the surprise cornerbacks in this draft.


  • Prototype for height, weight, speed at the position
  • Elite level athletic ability with rare fluidity for size
  • Traits and cover talent are scheme independent
  • Above-average ball production as three-year starter
  • Feet and hips to mirror and trace routes from press or off
  • Good bend and balance to stay connected to multi-breaks
  • Long speed to handle vertical challenges
  • Stick and click twitch to smother routes underneath
  • Above-average closing skill
  • Former wideout with soft hands and feel for attacking passing lane
  • Weather-tested
  • Weaknesses
  • Plays light for being a bigger cornerback
  • Gets out-muscled at break point too often
  • Unusually short arms for a tall cornerback
  • Lack of length shows up at times and could hinder trail technique
  • Needs to play more assertively against size
  • Gives away critical body positioning in potential 50-50 situations
  • Needs better eye-balance to read quarterback clues
  • Can improve his read and squeeze off routes from off coverage
  • Will get jostled and bounced as run supporter.

    "He's big and can run and that's what we need. Hell, that's what everybody needs now. He's not soft, but I just wish he had more dog in him to impose his presence on receivers. If he had that, he would be a top-40 pick." -- Director of scouting for NFC team
