RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Consistency has been an issue with Brown going back to his days at North Carolina, so it wasn't shocking to see him follow up his exciting rookie season with uneven play in 2013. Blessed with 4.4 speed at around 245 pounds, Brown has shown the ability to make a huge impact in both coverage and the pass rush. He has 9.5 sacks in his first two seasons, along with four interceptions and two touchdowns, so his ceiling is rather high. Unfortunately, he'll remain a boom-or-bust pick in 2014 since his exact role in Tennessee's 3-4 defense is unclear. The Titans have all of Brown, Akeem Ayers, Wesley Woodyard and Zaviar Gooden as potential inside linebacker starters.
It would seem at a glance as if Tennessee is crowded at linebacker, but a closer look hints at a big role for Brown in 2013 nonetheless. Akeem Ayers plays a limited snap count and splits his time between linebacker and defensive end, Colin McCarthy has a long history of injury troubles (12 games missed the last two years) and third-round pick Zaviar Gooden is a speedy linebacker whose skill set is redundant to Brown's. The Titans are in any case compelled to give Brown more work in 2013 after he posted 92 tackles, 5.5 sacks and three interceptions (two returned for touchdowns) in just 739 defensive snaps as a rookie.
