Brown is of the most underrated players in this Draft. He is tough against the run, but can also crush the depth of the pocket and hit the QB. Teams will always need interior linemen who can do those three things. He is a versatile guy who played in Texas' multiple front defenses. He played a lot of NT in 2013, and he played a lot of DT and 5-tech in 2014. "Yeah, we have a lot of 320-pound guys around here," BB said. "So we’ll see. Every guy is their own player, so we’ll see. [We’ll] work with him and see how it goes." So many DCs are going to fall in love with his Tape. He stays and plays low and mean, and uses his arms to hold the point. Two-Gap DCs are going to love this guy, because he is a great stack and shed player, and he had great feet for a NT. 4-3 DCs are going to love his Tape because he was aloud to shot gaps more and hit the QB last season.

He is one those versatile guys that all teams need. He did a ton of different things at Texas, from NT to 5-T to DT. "Yeah, again, he’s played a couple different systems," BB said. "I think you can see the guy do a number of different things. He’s not just always doing the same thing. There’s plenty of film on this guy against good competition." But he was getting up field with finesse bursts and his quick hands so much more this past season. He took his game to the next level with his ability to get up field. Plus he not only is disruptive moving forward, he finds the ball in the backfield.

They moved him outside more last season. So he was able to rush more. "I think it’s a little bit unusual for a guy that size," BB said. "He’s got a variety of skills, but it’s not unprecedented or anything. I don’t think this is something that’s never happened before. I certainly wouldn’t put him in that kind of category." He has great hands that he uses to control the blockers in front of him. He is great at punching and clubbing the OGs back and crushing the depth of the pocket. He tossed as many O-linemen to the ground as Shelton. The power and torque those two guys produce with their heavy hands is elite.

He was also able to get penetration on run downs a lot. That was a big factor in the evaluation. "We’re not, we’ve got to evaluate players based on what we see," BB said when asked about his run defense. "We give them a grade based on what we think they’ll do for us. We can’t really control who they play against or what system they play in or anything. We just have to take what we see and try to project it forward. I know we took Seymour. It was a big crisis because he only had half a sack in college and he couldn’t rush the passer. I don’t think that’s very accurate, but that was the big [problem]. [We] couldn’t get over that. I worry more about [who] they are when they get in our uniform and what they actually do. We take them based on what we think they can do. We’ve been right some. We’ve been wrong some. Just like everybody else in the league. It’s nothing really. It is what it is." Brown was terrific at holding the point this past season at DT. He play NT a lot prior to this past season, so he is used to get hit by multiple blockers and still holding the point. He is a great stack and shed power player at the point of attack. 

When he is on he has great heavy hands, and can put burst to power with great effectiveness. He can use speed to power to punch the OG back so he looks stunned for a second, and then break inside of him to the QB, and the OG can't get his hands back on him. That is a great weapon to have right in the middle of the line, and in front of the QB when he is trying to throw. He is also great at redirecting to the ball in the back field. A lot of guys, like Dominique Easley are great at exploding up field and disrupting the play, but not a lot of guys are also great at changing direction in the backfield and finding the ball. He has elite COD that he uses to find the ball carrier once he has burst into the backfield.

But he also has an elite burst and quick hands to make blockers miss. There are not a lot of guys who can club an OG to the ground, and then make a blocker miss on the next play. "Our coaches and scouts have been out all spring," BB said. "We’ve seen a couple hundred guys probably. I don’t even know how many it is, it’s been a lot. Guys that have seen different athletes were part of the [picture]. It’s a big mosaic and there are a lot of different components of it. That’s one. There are a lot of other ones, but that’s definitely one." That elite blend of power, strength, burst, and heavy powerful hands has garnered him a lot of accolades and awards.

Career at Texas: A three-year player who emerged as one of the best defensive players in the nation as a junior ... two-year starter who was named a 2014 finalist for both the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (top defensive player) and Outland Trophy (top interior lineman) ... earned 2014 All-America honors from Walter Camp, AP, FWAA, Sporting News, CBS Sports, USA Today and ESPN.com ... became the 47th Longhorn (eighth defensive tackle) to earn consensus first team All-America honors by appearing on the AP, Sporting News and FWAA squads ... he joined DTs Rodrique Wright (2005), Casey Hampton (2000), Tony Degrate (1984), Kenneth Sims (1980-81), Steve McMichael (1979), Brad Shearer (1977) and Scott Appleton (1963) on the consensus first team list ... a 2014 first-team All-Big 12 selection by The Associated Press, league coaches, ESPN.com and Austin American-Statesman ... played in all 39 games over his three seasons (26 starts) ... announced his intention to declare for the 2015 NFL Draft on Jan. 8 ... attended the 2015 NFL Combine ... ended his career having started 26 straight games which was second on the team behind Cedric Reed (32) ... in 2014 became the first defensive tackle to lead the team in tackles for loss and sacks since Tony Degrate in 1984 ... a member of the watch list for the 2014 Chuck Bednarik Award ... an All-American in high school .. rated as the second-best DT in the nation coming out of high school by ESPNU.

He would line up in front of the OLT and rush outside. The amazing part is that he had the burst and the power to turn the short corner on the OLT. He doesn't have the long speed of an edge rusher, but he can turn the short corner on the TE or the OLT and hit the quarterback. "He just played outside a little bit more this year than he did in the past," BB said. "I think for a guy his size to play out there and be a little bit more in space, you just saw him in some different situations, different match-ups than you did when he was between the guards, on the center or in the gap, or that kind of thing." It really is amazing to see him turn the short corner on the OLT or TE lined up outside the OLT.

He will line up at 5-tech. His burst off the snap is so great that he can hit the FB 3-yards behind the LOS as he gets the hand off. He is so quick. He not only gets to the other side of the line, he crashes into the RB and takes him down by himself. He explodes through QBs when he hits them. He makes QB's feet panic just by gaining the shoulder of the OG inside. He has a great burst off the snap that he uses to take away the depth of the pocket consistently, which always makes QBs uncomfortable.

I sure would like to see him as a 5-Tech for the Pats. "Yeah, again, he’s played a couple different systems," BB said. "I think you can see the guy do a number of different things. He’s not just always doing the same thing. There’s plenty of film on this guy against good competition." He has an amazingly agile spin move that he uses when they run to the opposite side he is slanting. It is amazing how he can gain the outside shoulder of the ORG, and then turn back when they run behind him and get in on the tackle. Elite COD when he is stacking the OG. He can hold him up and dance to either shoulder with his elite feet, as the RB dances to either side looking for a hole. He can also come off the rush when the QB takes off, and prevent him from reaching the LOS.

Excellent eyes. He does a nice job keeping his hands up on blockers, and then looking past them to the ball. He can shrug them aside with nice torque once he sees who the ball carrier is. He really looks the part. He takes on doubles well, and he is the one guy opposing O-lines doubled consistently last season. So he is well respected by opponents coaches. He had elite production last season and was a consensus All-American. Tops in Sacks in the Big-10 for D-tackles. The last time a DT had led Texas in Sacks (6.5) and TFL (15) was 1984. He also tied for the lead in pressures with 8, and garnered 72 tackles and 2 FF. He had one of the best seasons for a DT in a long time:

Started all 13 games at defensive tackle ... a consensus first team All-American ... named one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy (best interior lineman) on Nov. 25 ... named one of five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (top defensive player) on Nov. 20 ... a first-team All-America choice by the AP, FWAA, Sporting News, USA Today, CBS Sports and ESPN.com, and second-team choice by Walter Camp ... a first team All-Big 12 selection by The Associated Press and Austin American-Statesman, the league’s coaches and ESPN.com ... third Longhorn defensive tackle to claim first-team All-Big 12 honors from both the AP and coaches in the same season, joining Rodrique Wright (2005) and Casey Hampton (1999, 2000) ... earned semifinalist honors for the Outland Trophy on Nov. 20 ... a named to both the ESPN and SI.com Midseason All-America teams ... a preseason first-team All-Big 12 selection by Athlon and ESPN.com, and a second-team choice by Lindy’s and Phil Steele ... led the team in sacks (6.5), tackles for loss (15) and forced fumbles (2), and tied for QB pressures (8) ... sixth on the team in tackles with a career-high 72 ... became the first defensive tackle to lead Texas in tackles for loss and sacks since Tony Degrate in 1984, the year he won the Lombardi Award ... ranked tied for ninth (first among DTs) in the Big 12 in sacks (0.50 per game) ... one of just four Longhorns to record at least 3.5 sacks in the first three games of a season since 2001 (4, Eddie Jones - 2010; 4, Brian Orakpo - 2008; 3.5, Maurice Gordon, 2001) ... recorded three tackles, including one for a loss, and one QB pressure against North Texas ... tied his career high with 10 tackles vs. BYU ... also had career bests in tackles for loss (4) and sacks (2.5), and a forced fumble vs. the Cougars ... became just the 10th Texas player (11 occurrences), and only second defensive tackle (3.0 by Cedric Woodard vs. Texas A&M, 1998), to have 2.5 or more sacks in a game since 1998 ... recorded seven tackles, including three for a loss and a sack, and one QB pressure against UCLA ... had six tackles, one for a loss, and a quarterback pressure against Kansas ... shared the team’s defensive player of the game award with Jordan Hicks and Duke Thomas ... made seven tackles (five solo) against Baylor ... had four tackles and a pass breakup against Oklahoma ... had nine tackles, including one sack, against Iowa State ... also recovered a fumble to end the game ... made four stops against Kansas State ... had five tackles and a quarterback pressure in the Texas Tech game ... recorded seven tackles, including two for a loss, and two quarterback pressures against West Virginia ... recorded four stops, including two sacks, and forced a fumble against Oklahoma State ... was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Cowboys ... was named co-defensive player of the game (also Dylan Haines) by the coaching staff ... recorded four stops against TCU ... had eight tackles vs. Arkansas in the Texas Bowl.

Additional Game Notes:

BYU 2013: Very interesting 3-4 prospect. He can hold the point in the run, and burst up field with nice aplomb. When he gets his hands on the O-Lineman first, he can knock them down and get into backfield as quick as anyone.

Arkansas- He is so good at curling inside the OLT when lined up as a 5-Tech, and hitting the QB. He was a force rushing the QB against Arkansas. It seemed he was hitting him all game. He is so quick off the snap. When he stays low and uses his hands he can look unblockable without a double. He is so quick when he over-rushes a little, and they run a draw. He can turn back and dive on the RB as quick as anyone.

Baylor- I don't understand how a guy his size keeps getting up field in the rush like he does. He can use his hands to dismiss the OLT seemingly at will. Then he lined up at DT sometimes and is the best run stuffer on the team. Boy I'll tell you what, he can really look like Wilfork taking on the double when he is lined up inside. I would love to see this kid working with Wilfork on the Pats (ah, that made me sad;-). Great club. Elite burst to power. Heavy hands. He can toss the OG aside and hit the RB like a giant bolder rolling through the line.

Kansas ST- The more I watch Brown the more I would like to see him in BB's multiple defense. He could line up in so many spots and cause havoc. Texas plays defense a lot like the Pats, they are constantly changing fronts, looks, and responsibilities. He handles it seamlessly and dominates his assignment on almost every play.

UCLA: Steps out at 5-Tech sometimes. He looks real comfortable out there. Terrific heavy hands. You can see he plays in a read and react and is one of the best stack and shed D-linemen I've seen so far this year. Plus, he has unique explosion inside. So explosive inside, when a team foolishly doubles anther D-linemen, he charges into the backfield and finds the ball carrier. I'll take this guy on my team anytime. He hustles all over the field. He rushed up the gut and broke to the blindside, and flushed Hundley. Hundley took off to the other side and he chased him 10-15 yards down field. He finally hit him, as Hundley leaped in the air to avoid an LB in front of him, and injured Huntley's arm as he fell.

 

Malcom Brown Vs Arkansas:

I wanted to do Arkansas to see why I thought he was such a force against the rush. I will try to make this a short one as I already did his best statistical game of the year against BYU. He was a force of nature in that game. You are really going to love to watch that Tape. When he gets low it is amazing how he can just sneak past the OG and OC (:01). But what I really like about him, and you can see him here, is that he gets into the backfield with his head up. He finds the ball and consistently gets his hands on the ball carrier. (This is going to be another long one isn't it;-)

#90, at the 3-Tech. This is such a great example of how he uses his burst, hands, and feet to turn the short corner on the ORT. That is just incredible for a 320-pound man. He grabs the ORT's arms, and runs around him. Then watch the low dip and rip around the little RB like he is a speed bump, and he is looking to hurt the QB (:10). You have to remember that he is a 320-pound run stuffer who was a mostly nose tackle for two years before they moved into a more multiple defense this year. NTs are not suppose to be able to move like that.

He slices inside to hit the RB on the trickeration. But he doesn't stop. He was fooled by the fake, but he is still able runs outside and gets in on the tackle (:18). You could see him lined up at 5-Tech a lot for the Pats next year (:29). This is a stunningly great Tape for Pats fans. Because he lines up primarily at DT in the BYU Tape below, and Texas keeps going into Odd fronts here. He gets tripled teamed here and still gets to the QB (:39). Guys his size are not supposed to be able to test the edge like that.

Nose Tackle, where he often looks like Wilfork taking on the double. Watch the quickness and COD through contact, as he bounces from sides to side taking the OC shoulders at will. That is incredible run defense (:48). 5-Tech, but really more of a DT in an odd front. They really like to stand up a linebacker outside of him when they go into an Odd front (:57). It is amazing how he can bend that short corner around the OLT as a 5-Tech. That is elite agility for a 320-pound DT.

Short yardage. You know he is getting penetration up the gut here. He just lowered his head and ran through the ORG for his first pancake. I know that is a term for an O-linemen, but I want to keep count of how many times he throws O-linemen to the ground. He did about 5 or 6 times against BYU (1:07). Here is at DT. He is so good at using his hands to not let O-linemen grab his shirt (1:15). Watch how he uses his burst, feet, and hands to run around the OC and make the QB's feet panic.

Watch this great quick burst that lets him slip past the OLG and hit the QB (1:31). He has such an elite blast off for such a big guy that it is fun to watch. He burst through the OC again and forces the QB to throw too early to caused the incompletion in the Endzone (1:48). After all the dancing around the corner, watch his elite burst and power up field in the rush. The OLG pulls, and the OC does have the slightest chance to stop him from hitting the RB, but it is play action (1:57). He gets in front of the RB, but watch him grab the RB's arm and slice past him to the QB. What made him so special at Texas is that he not only got into the backfield, he was also elite at redirecting to the ball with explosive COD.

Back at DT. We saw the pretty, not the power. He powers right through the ORG and the OC and takes the OC and the RB down for his second pancake of an O-linemen (2:14). Watch the end, it looks like a pancake in the rush for the third (2:23). He gets knocked back about four yards by the double team but still fights his way to the RB (2:33). What makes him so special is not his agility and finesse, or his power and strength. It is the blend of those things that make him great (2:42). DT. Watch him take on the double at the point with power. He holds his ground with the strength in his base. But watch the amazing agility as he finesses the double off his shirt with a great spin move that moves him into the RB. I'm giving him another pancake as his spin move twisted the OLT to the ground.

Leverage and power. He gets lower than everyone else and digs under the OC into the QB (2:50). He slants to the other side of the line with power. Sees the RB cut back against the grain. Spins around with his great agility and dives on top of the RB (2:59). Watch the great power in his hands as he twists the OG aside and goes and dives on the RB again (3:06). Great burst up field to disrupt the play. But then he gets a hand on the RB as well, so a teammate can make the tackle (3:21). Watch this amazing submarine move for his fifth pancake (3:49). He fights through the double for another pancake (4:36). 5-Tech with power and agility (4:53). Watch him power the OLT inside to the hole. The RB cuts back behind the OLT. Watch the amazing agility to power spin back around, spinning the OLT, and grabbing the RB. That is as great a run stuff as you will ever see.

You see all the finesse. Now watch the power. He powers through the OC. Reaches out with one arm and grabs the RB. He flips the OC to the ground for his 7th pancake of the game as he tackles the RB as well (5:19). Watch the speed to power in the rush as he explodes though the OG for another pancake (5:59). Watch the heavy hands as he punches the ORG off, takes his inside shoulder, and finds a lane to the QB (6:08). He unequivocally has the heart and hustle of the mighty Vince Wilfork. He takes on the double. He tries to dig under them. But his knees wobble and he goes the ground in a heap of dust and half a ton of linemen (6:30). The QB takes off as poor little Malcom is pancaked into the turf. But the QB turns back inside. Check out who swings back on screen and tackles the QB. That's right. That is Malcom Brown, the steal of the 1st Round. He got up from the muck and mire of the double team pancake and made the tackle.

Short yardage inside the ten. He fights his way in front of the RB on a Dive to other side and protects the marker (6:42). He switches sides to the overloaded side to hopefully stuff him again. He explodes through the OG and ORT for another pancake, but slips down before he can get the RB for his 9th pancake (6:51). Watch the pure power as he bursts through the double team block for a double pancake (7:01). He burst through the ORG, under the ORT, and gets his hand out on the shoestring, but just can't hold on (7:09). That gave him ten pancakes in that game. Well if that Tape doesn't get you excited Pats Fans than you just don't like football.

Malcom Brown Vs BYU:

Let's end things with not just the best game of the 2014 season but the best game of his career. He he was a DT in 2014. You get a great look at his power and strength as he torques the blocker aside throwing him to the ground (for his 1st pancake;-), and crushes the RB. I'm sorry. Did you you say my comparisons to Vince were exaggerated (:07). He lines up here really as a 5-Tech. Watch his great hands and feet working together as he dances around the tight end. He smashes into the RB in blitz pick up, and shoves him off like an annoying puppy (:29). Then he gets in on his first Sack of the game. That is a great outside rush by a great inside player.

He is so good at holding his ground against the double (1:01). He holds up the point on short yardage. He goes and gets the RB. Then he sees it is play action. He sheds the OG and moves to the QB (1:16). You can see how he fights through the double from the OLG and OC with his hands to get a hand on the RB, but he can't hold on (1:38). He just looks like Vince sometime in run defense. I just thought that looked a lot like Vince fighting through the double team block with his huge bulk and oddly quick stepping feet.

He puts speed to power. Takes away the depth of the pocket, and helps force the QBs feet to panic. Then hustles downfield to get a little hit in on the QB (2:00). He uses his nice strength and power to take away the depth of the pocket again (2:28). This is a great play. He takes the outside shoulder of the OG, and forces the QB to the left. The OG seals him (2:36). But watch how he torques the OG, who has inside position on him, to the ground (second pancake). Then he dives into the RB. That is a great defensive play.

This is a pure stack and shed power play. Watch him shove the OLG up and a yard back, and grab the RB (2:45). It is amazing how he can use such great power, and then on the very next play become a speed guy. Watch this explosion. He burst inside the OC and OLG, shoves their hands off, and goes and gets the RB. But the RB is just able to scoot past him. However, Brown slows him down and gets some help. Then he amazingly redirects with his great COD, and he absolutely crushes the RB from behind. That was a devastating hit by Brown (3:08). It is amazing how he can play with such power. Than he speeds around the OLT with a little Rip, like he is a yield sign (3:25). He just takes the OLG inside shoulder (3:33). He powers him back and disrupts the whole play.

You get a great look at him playing in balance and tossing the OG to the ground again (third pancake. 4:01). Watch the speed to power as he tosses the RB back and hits the QB a little late (4:09). I love how he clubs the OG aside and hits the RB (4:21). Watch his great feet and hands working together in balance to finesse his way past the OG. Then just misses the Sack by a finger nail (4:39). Such nice Wilfork like power (4:56). He gets crushed by the double team block. Then fights through and makes the tackle. That is an elite run play. It is amazing how he can blend finesse and quickness on one play, and then pure power and strength on the next.

Again just pure power at the point. He stacks the OG, and then clubs him aside and jumps on the RB (5:03). Watch the speed to power as he pops the OG back and off balance, and redirects to the QB for the sack (6:38). First the punch to the outside shoulder that turns the ORG sideways. Then he clubs his inside shoulder and shove him aside, and runs through the QB (6:47). He just has elite hands. He grabs the OG's shirt and pulls his way past him and puts his helmet into the QB to cause the strip sack (6:56). You can see his hands inside on the OG's shirt as he is reading the QB (7:14). Then he rag dolls him aside, turns, and charges into the QB like a runaway bull, and rams into him with his helmet to pop the ball out.

The power and then the explosion. Watch him use the explosion in his legs and his hands to make the OG miss (7:32). He gets knock back, but then he tosses the OG to the ground (4th pancake) and jumps on top of the RB (7:40). He gets sealed. Then grabs the OG's arm and clubs his way past him (7:47). He uses his great hands and quickness to make the OG miss again, and helps him to the ground again (5th pancake 7:55). Watch the speed to power as he puts the OG on skates (8:01). That was a great game by a great college player.
