When the Carolina Panthers selected defensive tackle Derrick Brown, they instantly improved all aspects of their defense. Brown has the potential to be an all pro player within three years depending on the skill of the Panthers’ new coaching staff.
Here are a few highlights of Derrick Brown.
What isn’t instantly obvious is just how much Brown will improved the Carolina Panthers pass defense. Brown provides the push up the middle that even quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Drew Brees struggle with.
Brown is a mix of what KK Short and Star Lotulelei brought to the table for the Panthers. He has the ability to play anywhere along the defensive line, even lining up at end in some cases at Auburn.
In short, Brown is what the Carolina Panthers had hoped fellow first rounder Vernon Butler would be. Lets hope Brown lives up to the hype.
