    Brown may very well run in the 4.4s.

    Just looks slower, IMO, because he's smaller and doesn't take a lot of false steps. Ogletree looks like he's sprinting across the field quite a bit.
    Was just about to same something like this. I was watching some footage of Brown dropping into coverage against WR's and running stride for stride with them.

    Arthur Brown, at least to me, doesn't look like he lacks for explosion at all.

    Seems there's a chance Ogletree is gone in hthe 1st & Brown/Greene are gone in the 2nd....one of those 3 would be nice

    Watch the Baylor video. Towards the end of the video he chases rg3 down like nothing.

    Just watched it....impressive. I just finished watching him against Oklahoma too. Can't really say who he reminds me of....he's like a hybrid of different LB's I've watched in the pro's. Anyway here's the link to the OU game

    t 3:20 he murders a wide-out.

    He reminds me of bowman a lot to be honest. Similar type of range and physicality.

    as of now he is more polished than ogeltree,,but ogeltree has much more athleticism and upside, he could wind up as one of the best players in this draft. the questions with brown are he is undersized and will he be able to hold up in the NFL with out being pushed around? or cover bigger WR's and TE's? I would be happy with either.

    Brown isn't undersized. Unless Willis, ray Lewis, and Bowman are undersized too.

    Ogletree doesn't have a lot more athleticism. I'd say they are about equally athletically. Ogletree just has a bigger frame and is 2" taller

    so if you stand brown next to these guys mentioned you are saying they look the same? not even close,,,those LB's you mentioned are well put together dudes whereas brown is smallish for 230, and probably cant get much bigger, ogeltree can and will.

    Brown is almost the exact same size as bowman, Willis, and the current ray Lewis. All of them are about 6'0-6'1 235-245 pounds. A difference of five or so pounds is nothing significant.

    Now that's assuming brown measures in the size his school reports...

    Agree. In my eyes he looks or " plays " taller than his actual size report. The combine will strip away any doubts.
