Default Zach Brown Question

Zach Brown is slipping, largely due to questions about instincts, awareness and physicality plua a deep LB class.

He does have buckets of speed and athleticism along with good coverage skills and tackling ability.

Do you think Brown could move to SS? Sure there would be a learning curve, but it could suit Brown's strengths.

Considerng the safety class is so weak, is this something that should be considered?

No.

Zach Brown has actually been bulking up (Almost 250 lbs IIRC) during the pre-draft process. Assumedly this is to improve his ability to shed blocks and take on blockers.

Also, a move to safety would only exacerbate his instincts/awareness issue.

A guy who fits between LB and SS is a bad place to be in today's NFL. I think in most cases a player in this situation would fair better trying for LB - safeties more and more have to be good cover guys by DB standards.

Couldn't have said it better myself. In today's NFL if you are in that situation the best course of action would probably be to try and max out your frame and just be an athletic/coverage linebacker. With the speed and passing in today's game switching linebackers to safety is just asking to get destroyed.

Nope, he's got pretty poor coverage skills, he gets lost covering a RB let alone a WR

Instincts aren't good - looks very good when he's given the green light to fly up the field - but read and react skills are poor. Not as instinctive as Lavonte David or Sean Spence for sure.

Prolly a Will maybe even a Mike in a 4-3. not a safety ever, thomas davis was the last hybrid ive seen and he had to play linebacker because insufficient cover skills, might have been fast enough but didnt have the cover skills.

Zach Brown is simply not a good football player.

I have no idea why everyone is so infatuated with him. Just watch him play. He's not good.
