Draft 2021 – Pick #3: Bobby Brown III, DT, Texas A&M

Player Bio
Brown was a four-star recruit, signing with the home-state Aggies after earning honorable mention all-district honors at Lamar High School in Arlington. He made 14 tackles in 11 games as a reserve in 2018 before moving into the starting lineup as a sophomore. He started 11 of 13 games played in his second season, recording 21 stops, two for loss, and a blocked kick. League coaches approved of his junior campaign play, voting him first-team All-SEC for his 22 tackles, 7.5 for loss, with a team-best 5.5 sacks in 10 starts in 2020. — by Chad Reuter

Tim Settle

Interior defender with the size and pad level to handle reps at nose or three-technique in an even front. Brown shed weight in 2020 and played at a fairly high level inside an SEC-only schedule. His footwork and body control are inconsistent, leading to clear wins and clear losses, but he has the strength and potential to take firmer control at the point of attack with more technique work. He can read-and-react as a two-gapper or play on the move with adequate effectiveness. His rush tends to be a little uninspiring, which could push him off the field on passing downs. He won’t be 21 until August and should come in as a quality backup early on before working into a starting role in the future.

  • * Size and traits to play both tackle spots in even front. * Consistent to stay low off the ball. * Doesn’t linger on the block for very long. * When feet are set under him, his anchor versus double teams can be sturdy. * Reads zone and gets skinny to slink between blockers
  • * Leverage helps him escape previously centered blocks. * Adequate close-out down the line of scrimmage. * Violent hands improve ability to soften edges as rusher. * Fires a long-arm stab and runs behind it to push pocket as bull rusher. * Recognizes screen development and makes quick double back
  • Pass rush is typically lumbering.
  • Would like to see more energy and spirit in his rush approach.
  • Not enough edge-hunting to open door to the pocket.
  • Doesn’t get to rush counters to rid himself of mirroring pass protection.
  • Rarely gets early arm extension at point of attack.
  • Loose with feet, causing some inconsistency with his base.
  • Movement isn’t as controlled and efficient as it needs to be.
  • Can improve with technique to improve hand control in read and react.
