RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Patriots are counting on Brown, last year's first-round pick, to be a stalwart of the team's interior defensive line for years to come. The 6-foot-2, 320-pounder, who recorded 48 tackles and three sacks as a rookie in 2015, figures to see an uptick in snaps this season and in such a scenario, he could enter the IDP equation.
With the team looking to replace long-time DT Vince Wilfork, the team's selection of Brown in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, 32nd overall, made perfect sense. While Brown isn't the huge space-eater that Wilfork was in his prime, he's stout in his own right (6-foot-2, 320 pounds) and could morph into a disruptive lineman at the NFL level. As a rookie, he's have to overtake Sealver Siliga and Alan Branch to gain a starting slot, but such an outcome seems destined to occur at some point, if not to begin the 2015 season.
