Where does the former top ranked recruit stand in the 2012 draft?


 Wes Bunting
National Football Post

February 08, 2012



The breakdown…
 
Brown definitely has the talent to play in the NFL.


 
RB Bryce Brown: Kansas State (6-0, 220)


 Possesses natural girth and muscle tone through his upper body. But, looks a bit thin and lean through the lower half. Exhibits a longer set of legs and isn’t a real compact runner once he gets his wheels churning. Displays a good first step when pressing the line of scrimmage and runs initially with a good forward lean. He displays a good feel when asked to press the line of scrimmage or edge on perimeter runs and looked very comfortable in Tennessee’s zone scheme in 2009. Felt defenders well around him, displayed good lateral quickness when asked to put his foot in the ground and accelerated quickly into the open field. Showcased some natural wiggle as well as a cut back guy, setting up blocks and using his foot quickness/burst and make a man miss and burst into the open field. Once he collected his feet, did a nice job finishing runs, lowing his pad level and falling forward on contact.
 
However, would allow his pad level to rise when trying to be sudden and make a defender miss. Would expose his lower half inside and subject his frame to some bigger hits and could be wrapped up easily at times between the tackles despite his size. Didn’t keep a real wide base and/or great knee bend when looking to change directions and could easily be knocked off balance at times. Not overly dynamic/shifty when asked to make defenders miss who can square him up, looks to use strength and burst to gain an angle and run toward daylight.
 
Caught the football well out of the backfield and accelerated quickly after the catch. Has a good first step and looks like a low 4.5 guy on tape. Wasn’t asked to play much on third down however and pass blocking is going to be an initial concern at the next level.
 
Left the Tennessee program following the 2009 season and transferred back home to Kansas State. Sat out 2010 and only played in three games in 2011 for the Wildcats before leaving the team and spending the rest of the semester in Tennessee.
 
Impression: Watching him run in Lane Kiffin’s zone scheme as a freshman, the guy was an impressive back with a lot of natural talent. He was the number one ranked recruit out of high school, ahead of Trent Richardson in 2009 and no doubt has the skill set to play in the league. The biggest question mark for him going forward is his overall character.

Where will he hold a workout, since he doesn't belong to any college program, and didnt receive a combine invite??

Good question.

It will be interesting to see if a team takes a flyer on him.  He was the number one high school kid in the country at one point.  The dude ran for 7000 yards in high school. Dallas area.  He was called "Cant miss Bryce Brown".   Now look where he is.      SMH

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

If we are drafting players based on High School hype and freshman season cant we just draft Maurice Clarett?

Would have no problem using a late-rounder on Brown.

Here's another RB that had tremendous talent and might be a late round or UDFA that could be amazing. Kenny Turner, RB from New Mexico State. Went to the same High School with CHris Johnson and Mike Sims-Walker. Of the three he was suppose to be the best of the three. Got himself into some trouble and went to prison. You can read the article on him (which is very well done, worth reading for sure)

If he goes undrafted he would be free to sign anywhere.  And with the KU connection perhaps Freeman gets in his ear.

Can't see a guy with prison on his record coming here this season. I think they clean that off the team not add to it.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Agree.   And it makes you wonder if they shy away from Janaris Jenkins also.

He really didn't do anything to say he has bad character. It's more a case of a young kid being surrounded by bad people. His father and uncle/agent are shady as hell and have completely screwed up this kids career. They have made all the divisions so far for this kid. The question is, if he gets a shot in the NFL, does he wise up and separate himself from his scumbag father and uncle? Or is it just more of the same? Chances are this kid's family continues top drag him down and he never accomplishes anything is the NFL.....but he has amazing abilities and low miles. Some team will take a chance on him late in the draft.

Just read that he didn't get a combine invite.....so that pretty much guarantees he will go undrafted. He'll make a great UDFA for some team.

 I would put Tolbert in at FB, and move Lorig to TE.
