Scouting Report: Tony Brown, CB, Alabama 

Beaumont, Texas | 5116 | 198 | 4.41E | 2018

A magnetic player who draws the attention of positive and negative publicity but an extremely talented skillset, featuring speed, athleticism and toughness. Possesses keen instincts and strong ball awareness; tracks and locates the ball well. Shows fluid change of direction, squares up and tackles like a linebacker—big hitter. In addition to being the fastest member on the Crimson Tide, he’s also known to be one of the funniest and is credited with raising the team’s energy level. Registered eight special teams tackles in 2015 on punt and kick coverages. Was suspended four games by the NCAA for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams (Chargers) in 2016 and reportedly failed a drug test leading up to the playoff game against Michigan State. An Olympic-level hurdler, Brown recently recorded the fourth-fastest 60-meter hurdle time in the university’s history and has been timed in the mid-4.3 range. Both of his parents were student-athletes at Texas Tech. Has started at safety when Eddie Jackson went down to injury, has also started at slot corner but is talented enough to play outside and projects as a solid starting number two cornerback at the next level.
