Cameron Brown
Ohio State Buckeyes


One-Liner:

A very talented player with excellent cover skills and the ability to defend passes. Unfortunately, he does have an extensive injury history.

Evaluation:

This is a very talented cornerback, but also someone with an extensive injury history. He is a great cover corner, in both zone and man coverage. Has the ability to lock down receivers with impeccable mirroring technique. He possesses great closing speed and can make up distance quickly. He has strong hands and is able to break up passes with ease. Doesn’t have the interception numbers you would like to see, but that is not negative. He has tremendous pass break-up skills and doesn’t get thrown at much as he is able to eliminate his matchup, so the quarterback can’t throw his way. He is also a very physical player, he is a phenomenal tackler and has no problem playing through contact. Very difficult to block and can make tackles while they are trying to block him. Injuries have completely derailed multiple seasons of his college career, so that is going to be a big red flag for teams. However, if he can put a full healthy season together there is a great chance he will skyrocket up the cornerback rankings. One area he does need to improve this year is playing the inside cornerback position. He seems to get confused at times when he is inside and he has trouble recovering. If he can improve that it will show NFL teams that he can play any cornerback and he will see the field very early on.

Grade:

5th Round
