Double check on Brown's status closer to the season, as there may be some overlap between he and Reggie Ragland, both of whom are regarded as pure MLBs. One could start at middle and the other outside...

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

With Buffalo switching to a proper 3-4 this year after previously deploying an incoherent 3-4 hybrid, Brown should be in position to log his best IDP season yet. He's been quite decent despite the burden of his team's surrounding dysfunction, logging 229 tackles and three interceptions in his first two NFL seasons. Turning just 24 in October, the combination of third-year progression and a more natural scheme give reason to hope fora 130-tackle push from Brown. There generally isn't much reason to expect the thumper to become a sack or interception source, though.

2015

With former teammate Kiko Alonso going down to injury entering last season, Brown was promoted to the Bills' starting lineup as a rookie and ultimately finished as Buffalo's leading tackler with 109 stops (66 solo) on the campaign. The rookie third-rounder also nabbed an interception and recovered a fumble, adding to an outstanding debut season. In fact, Brown's emergence surely factored into Alonso being traded this offseason, leaving him to start as new coach Rex Ryan's main inside linebacker and one that should see the field for all three downs. In that all-important role, Brown’s fantasy stock should continue to climb this season, especially when you consider the strength of the Bills' strong defensive front and its ability to shield blockers from Brown. Although he's yet to claim an NFL sack, Brown still projects as an intriguing high-volume - yet under-the-radar - IDP consideration this fall.

2014

The Bills selected Brown with the 73rd pick in the 2014 draft and are looking at him to contribute right away. You aren't likely to see many sacks from him and it is hard to predict rookie performance, but Brown has upside as another tackling machine in a defense that will need to replace Kiko Alonso's production.
