I like this guy seems very athletic and good at getting to the QB. Read that he would be a good fit for a 3-4 OLB in the NFL. Probably will need to add some weight. I think we go after him if he is available in rounds 3 or 4. Sparano was born in Connecticut and coached there so he might have some inside info. on him.Also found Brown is a Florida native having played high school football for Coral Springs.What do you guys think of him as a player and his chances of being a Dolphin?

Could be worth a shot in the third or fourth. A very productive player who would need to bulk up and get stronger to succeed at the pro level. Should be a 3-4 OLB but has limited upside. I think he will get a look at by the Phins

Parcells and Co talked to him at the Senior Bowl. He is definitely on our radar.

A fantastic athlete...Good speed with a burst to close...Quick and agile...Excellent mobility and range...Fluid and smooth...Great change of direction skills...Does a nice job in space...Uses his hands well...Tough and competitive...Has special teams potential...Versatile with some experience at linebacker ... Solid intangibles ... Productive.

Does not have the height or bulk that you look for...Needs to get stronger...Lacks great instincts and awareness...Repertoire of pass rush moves is limited...Is a liability against the run...Can get physically manhandled and pushed around at times...Needs to play with better leverage...Minor durability concerns...Might have to change positions.

A three-year starter...Became the first true freshman to start a game on either the offensive or defensive lines during UConnís Division I-A era...Missed the 2005 season finale against Louisville with an injury...Missed more than half of the 2006 season with a broken arm...Makes a lot of impact plays behind the line of scrimmage and really knows how to get after the quarterback...Undersized 'tweener whose best fit at the next level might come as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

In a way it depends on where they veiw Wake as being a better fit. SOLB or on the weak side behind Porter. Brown is definately a weak side guy and would be a really good developmental player learning behind Porter. On the other hand if they view Wake as a back-up to Porter they would need a player to compete/develop behind Roth. Brown I do not believe can play that position he doesnt have enough bulk and probably can't put it on at his size with his frame.
