Scouting Report: Elton Brown

Scouting Report: Elton Brown

Full Name:  Elton Brown     School: Virginia

Ht:  6-5     Wt: 338   40: 5.34

The Good: Big, dominant blocker that engulfs opponents at a point of attack then totally removes them from the play.  Nasty and works to finish blocks.  Displays outstanding power and easily controls opponents, opening large holes for the running game or turning defenders off the ball and driving them into the ground.  Emotional leader of the offensive line and very vocal.  Immediately picks up stunts or twists thrown by opponents and helps out linemates.  

The Bad: Not quick if asked to pull across the line of scrimmage, cannot redirect to linebackers on the second level and has difficulty in space.  More an arm wrestler then leverage blocker.  Narrow based lineman that loses balance.

The Skinny: One of the more dominant guard prospects available in next April's draft, Brown combines terrific size, growth potential and natural strength.  And while he must iron out the rough edges of his game, perfectly suited for a ball control offense in the NFL.  A blocker that should be off the board during the first 60 picks next April.
