Bio: Two-year starter and second team
All-Conference choice as a sophomore last
season after 44 tackles and 9 pass breakups.
PAC-10 Freshman of the Year in 2003 after
Positives: Well-sized, shut-down
cornerback with good upside for the next level.
Solid backpedaling in reverse, flips his hips in
transition and displays a burst of closing speed.
Effective in man-to-man coverage and has
opposing quarterbacks looking away from him.
Reads the receivers' eyes, gets his head back
around, and makes plays on the ball. Quickly
plants, then breaks on the throw. Gets vertical
and adjusts to knock away the pass. Effectively
uses his large frame to box out opponents.
Explosive run defender who flashes on the scene
and looks to deliver the knockout throw. Defeats
blocks on his way to the ball carrier.
of a long strider with built-up speed rather than
a quick, sudden defender. Gets turned, not the
most instinctive player, and at times does a
lot of chasing. Marginally effective backed off
the line of scrimmage. Often flagged for pass
interference. Timed poorly at the combine.
Analysis: A defensive back with outstanding size
and strength, Browner is perfectly suited to play
press coverage at the next level and also has
possibilities at safety. Possesses a lot of upside
potential and has the skills to be a shut-down
cornerback in the NFL, but far from the finished
product, needs time to develop his overall game
and will only be effective in certain systems.
