Brown is as versatile a defensive back as you’re going to find, and I am sure that is part of the appeal for Fleck and defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae. He is physical enough to be a safety — and likes to lower the boom — but also possesses the speed and quickness to succeed as a cornerback. I could also see the staff utilizing Brown at the nickel position.
