Scouting Report

Brown is a three-sport athlete at Naples High School in Florida, where he tallied 82 tackles, eight tackles for loss, three interceptions, three pass break-ups, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery last season. He was also a finalist for top defensive player in Southwest Florida. Brown, weighing in at 175 lbs. currently, will need to add size and strength at the college level, but there is no question that he has a natural feel for the game. He demonstrates great instincts and coverage skills on film, and is a sure tackler, especially in run support. This is a good pick-up for Minnesota.
