2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Zach Brown, OLB, North Carolina
Brown has a ton of experience, having played sparingly as a freshman before starting six games at weakside linebacker in 2009. His physical assets are not particularly impressive (he stands at 6'2'' and 230 pounds), but he makes up for any size deficiencies with speed. A member of the track team, Brown set a school record in the indoor 60-meter dash last season and he has been clocked as fast as 4.40 in the 40-yard dash. That is almost unheard of quickness for a linebacker. Furthermore, he is very strong despite his relative lack of build and is a sound tackler. He will be best at outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme. Brown should be a first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
