Austin Brown from Miami (Ohio) received interest from the San Francisco 49ers. Brown is 6’1 and 296 pounds. Brown is an underrated free agent rookie out of the class of 2014. He was with the Texans during the 2014 training and subsequently signed with the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League.
College2Pro.com stated in 2013: Brown put on a clinic for NFL scouts at the school’s Pro Day. His forty-time of 4.97 would have placed his third amongst all NFL Scouting Combine invites at the position. Brown played in 10 games, making eight starts, in 2013. He finished the year with 37 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss and one sack. He had a season-high six tackles versus Central Michigan and blocked a field goal versus Cincinnati. To coincide with this impressive forty, Brown pumped out 32 reps of 225 at this Pro Day. Compared to the 28 defensive tackles at the NFL Scouting Combine, only two finished with more. Interest from just more than the 49ers is likely to follow Brown after an impressive Pro Day. In comparison to Aaron Donald considered the top defensive tackle in the nation and Brown’s number’s are similar across the board.
