Prospect Profile: Ronnie Brown

Ronnie Brown School: Auburn
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 233 40: 4.49 Year: 5Sr

Bio: All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 153/913/8 on the ground and adding 34/ 313/1 as a pass catcher. Posted career rushing numbers as a sophomore of 175/1,008/13. Used in the starting lineup at running back and fullback.

Positives: Well-built ball carrier with outstanding size/speed numbers. Displays excellent vision, immediately finds the hole and possesses good football intangibles. Follows blocks at the line of scrimmage or down the field. Excellent awareness in all aspects of his game. Solid footwork for a big ball carrier. Makes himself the hot receiver on blitzes and help out the quarterback.

Negatives: Indecisive blocking and tentative at times. Not a quick-footed, elusive runner who creates if nothing is available.

Analysis: A competitive back with outstanding physical skills, Brown proved himself to be a "do-it-all" ball handler in ‘04. Improved every facet of his game last season, especially his blocking and pass catching, and as a result will be an early first-round pick.
