He is on my do not draft list.
Starts at 18:23 (audio only)
I can't make myself like any DL with our first pick that doesn't have a complete endorsement across the board.
that is quite possibly the worst analysis I’ve ever heard and seen. He’s criticizing him for not making plays against Alabama where it’s clear Saban is running plays away from him. Aaron Donald wouldn’t have made plays either. Awful analysis. The dude pushes his guy into the backfield and causes disruption and moves the QB off the spot. Plus from all accounts he’s just a great person and a hard worker. To me, this is a no brainer. Unless Okuda falls to us, I think we have to take him. I like Simmons but I like Brown better.
I’ve written I’ve cooled on him since the Combine. I’m okay with him after the 12th pick, but not at 8.
Here’s some of the reasons why,
Harry's link was not taking me to the article directly
I watched many prospects analysis from this dude and he has a pretty good knowledge
i think "do not draft" is too strong
i think comparisons to Nkemdiche arent justified. Nkemdiches problem wasnt physical, it was between the ears. Derrick Brown is a A+ when it comes to loving the game and being accountable.
I see him and Andrew Thomas as being in the same bucket: high floor players who at worst will be competent NFL starters. I think they have faded in some eyes as there are questions on how high the upside is.
i think Derrick Brown is the kind of defensive lineman where at the end of the game, the stat sheet is underwhelming -- but if you look at the film you see him blowing things up and letting other guys finish off a play.
Maybe we should be looking at #65 Deonte Brown OG of Alabama.
I’m not drafting him until at least the 16th pick.
That’s the key.
We have a chance to get a top-4 or top-5 position player at 8 depending on QBs. Brown is in no way the BPA there.
did you watch the video of him criticizing Brown during the Alabama game? What was he expecting Brown to do? He got push upfield, the play went away from him
Yeah, if somebody has questions about Brown all they need to do is google a replay of the Iron Bowl and watch it. That was a hard fought win against the TOP competition. Brown is among a small handful of players ranked above 7 (with a top score of 8) at NFL.com. The same people that gave Wills a 6.7 I believe it is, as their top rated OT in this draft. I'm comfortable with their assessment.
I thought he played well in that game against a solid O-line, but an NFL line allows less margin for error.
I would imagine most people like Brown because they think he is going to be an elite run stopper for us. It can't be because of his sacks.
In the Alabama game, Najee Harris ran of 146 yards (many times right at him). Brown was a non-factor in the run game...he was manhandled. What is going to happen when he is playing against grown men every Sunday?
Watch Wills in back to back plays in the red zone vs Brown.
@ 3:32 - they run right at him and Wills turns him/puts him on a knee
Very next play they run right at him again and Wills pancakes him...TD.
He does start to turn it on at about 8:43 (7 min left in 4th QTR).
You can watch the entire game below.
Quinnen Williams was better than this guy. And Quinnen shouldn't have went in the top 10.
