Brown is a disruptive force on the line. He finished his senior year in Miami with 10 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks and one forced fumble.
"I feel like I have a lot of athletic ability to bring to a defensive line," Brown said. "I give a different look at defensive tackle because I'm so agile that offensive linemen usually can't handle me."
The Chargers also spoke with linebacker H.B. Blades, a 5-foot-11, 241 lb. linebacker from Pittsburgh. The Chargers have a need at linebacker with Donnie Edwards set to depart as a free agent and with Randall Godfrey contemplating retirement.
The key for Blades will be proving he can keep up with the speed of the pro game. That was no problem in college, where he finished his senior season with 147 tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, one sack and two interceptions.
"I want to prove to the scouts that I'm a lot faster than what people think," Blades said. "I already know I'm short and there's not much I can do about that, but with what kind of football player I am and with how physical I am, I can play in any scheme."
