Chris Steuber Ranking
#30 out of 357 overall
#3 at RB
Brown is a strong, compact runner who's tough between the tackles. He has the ability to get on the edge, but he's at his best running North-South. He's quick through the hole, shifty in the open field and has the quickness to be elusive in the open field. He has great vision and balance and falls forward when being tackled. He has good hands out of the backfield, but has to work on his blocking.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis A surprise selection here for the Colts, but considering the struggles of RB Joseph Addai last season, this pick shouldn't be a shock. Brown offers more versatility and both should form a solid tandem at running back.
