|After transferring closer to home from Miami, Brown lived up to his potential in two seasons at Kansas State and is now poised to become one of the first linebackers taken in this year's draft. The brother of Philadelphia Eagles running back Bryce Brown was one of the most sought-after high school players in the nation and chose to sign with the Hurricanes. He appeared in 23 games in his two seasons there but registered only 17 tackles. Like his brother, Brown chose to finish his collegiate career at Kansas State and recorded a combined 201 tackles, including 122 solo stops. He had a career-best 65 solo tackles as a senior and 100 total to earn Big 12 defensive player of the year honors. Brown was also named a first team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America and made the Associated Press' second team. He was invited to the Senior Bowl but a shoulder injury kept him out of action. It also limited him to one drill at the NFL combine, the broad jump. He finished outside the top 15 among linebackers in that event at 116 inches. Brown, though, had an impressive pro day on March 15 as he ran a 4.67 and 4.68 in the 40, which would have put him in the top 10 among linebackers at the combine.
