I would really love Brown to be the Packers' first pick, more than Orakpo.
Seems like he has the speed, tools, technique and killer instinct to be a perfect fit for our pass rushing, either as a 4-3 DE or a 3-4 OLB.
Imagine him and Jeremy Thompson after a couple of years, they can be one of the most feared speed rusher tandems in the league. The future would be theirs.

Even before the announcer said, "That's the old Reggie White club move," I was wondering if this kid had studied game tape of #92 -- his mechanics and style are eerily similar. Imagine what an awesome defensive coach like Dom Capers could get out of Brown; he might even have the talent to provide an immediate impact next season.

I'm getting more and more excited everyday about the direction this team is taking. Given the talent present on the Bears' squad and the talent brought in by the Vikings, we may very well be witnessing the re-emergence of the old Black and Blue Division.

I now believe I want him more than Orakpo. He has great speed and good moves to get around the tackle. I just hope he can rush from a standing position.

he does remind me of the minister with the club move, but seems to be 100% faster at the same time

He does seem faster, but the angles he takes and his gait seem dead ringers for old #92, despite the fact his body proportions are different (he feels "blockier" to me than the MoD).

Good coaching from Capers will help him out a LOT. I can only imagine what he'd be like if Capers had him for a few years.

Huge FSU fan and have seen plenty of FSU games with Brown. When he is able to pin his ears back and go, he is a mad man. He did not drop back into coverage that much, so not sure how he would be. He was compared to lawrence Timmons (Steelers) and Wimbley(Browns), prior FSU DE's. Would like to see him ad some bulk, but keep his speed. would've loved him return to FSU for his final year, just to tear it up, but would also enjoy if the Pack took a shot at him.

I had him projected to the Packers as well in my first mock. He fits the 3-4 defense very well actually.

I like this kid, and I hope GB drafts him. However, this kid is the complete opposite of Reggie White. Reggie was a natural DE at 6' 5" 290. Brown is 6'4" 250

Still my top choice, although Raji has closed the gap some, and I won't be upset with Jenkins or an OT.

I would prefer to trade down in the 1st and go for Clint Sintim who has already played in the 3-4 in college and been very effective at getting to the qb from the outside with 11 sacks in '08 alone
