2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Kerry Brown, OL, Appalachian State
Brown started four of eight games during his freshman season of 2004, starting at the left guard position all of the team's 15 games during his sophomore campaign. He repeated the feat in 2006. Following that season, Brown was named Southern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2006. He also earned first team Division I-AA All American honors. He has had a solid senior campaign, again starting all of the team's games at left guard and again he took first team All American honors. Brown ended his collegiate career by being selected to play in the Texas vs. The Nation All Star Game on February 2, 2008. Brown is an experienced starter. At times he looks to be a "man against boy" while playing against his team's weekly competition. He has a good frame and weight distribution. He is a good pass protector being able to stay low and maintain good leverage. Brown moves laterally with ease and is very smooth while changing directions. He moves well in the second and third blocking level and can play under control. While he uses his hands well, he needs to improve his mechanics. He doesn't have great speed (5.24-40) and will have trouble with edge rushers. He definitely needs to add weight and strength because he gets pushed around. Another concern is that he needs to learn to sustain blockers better. Brown's competition level is somewhat of a concern. Brown is a hard worker, he can play with injuries and is willing to learn the position. The fact that he sometimes dominated against his opponents means that the level of competition label could be a wash. He is not a great athlete and did not posses any overshadowing trait. Brown is currently forecast to be drafted late in the draft or could even become a free agent.
