2020 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted seventh overall after being named SEC Defensive Player of the Year, Brown is expected to quickly emerge as a dominating presence up front. The 6-5, 325-pound defensive tackle finished with 54 tackles, including 11.5 for loss, and four sacks in 12 games during his senior season for Auburn last year. Along with his size and strength, he sports impressive quickness for an interior lineman, making for an all-around skill set the Panthers hope will propel their defense back toward the top of the league.

January 12, 2021
Brown finished the 2020 season with 34 tackles (21 solo), two sacks and four passes defended in 16 games played.
Brown was drafted seventh overall last year and immediately became a starter in the middle of the Panthers' defense. At 6-5 and 318 pounds, Brown proved to be a disruptive interior presence, playing 70 percent of Carolina's defensive snaps overall and pitching in with a pair of sacks of Aaron Rodgers in Week 15. The 22-year-old will now aim to elevate his game further heading into his second season.
