With the offensive part of the NFL Combine coming to an end, the focus now shifts to the defensive side of the football. The Houston Texans have met with UCLA linebacker Jayon Brown to continue their evaluations.
His chance for the Bruins came in 2015 after highly touted Myles Jack was injured with a knee issue and Brown did not give up his position. Brown also contributed on special teams making him an intriguing option for the Texans who value positional players being options to help on special teams.
Brown played four seasons with the Bruins and came into the spotlight the past two seasons taking over in the middle of the defense. In 2015, Brown appeared in 12 games posting 93 total tackles, while in 2016, he posted 119 total tackles with 7 sacks, 3 interceptions and 6 pass deflection.
Considered a day three prospect to CBS Sports.com.
