Strengths 

Size and brute strength are his biggest assets and he used all 360 lbs to mask his flaws both athletically and mechanically while at Bama. Deonte forces DT's to take the long way around, stone walls bullrushers, and moves bodies with easy in the run game. Explosive at the point of attack with a ton of power and leg drive to finish his blocks. Solid anchor ability as a pass blocker who was rarely every gave up ground, as well as a estructive down blocker who's a reliable source in short yardage and goalline.

Weaknessess

Carries a lot of unnecessary weight but has already begun slimming down. Heavy footed, lacks lateral agility and is inefficient in space. Decent athlete for his size but may struggle against the NFL's elite. His reach and hand size are below average forcing him to lean into his blocks instead of sitting low in his pass set. Decent hand placement but shows little to no punch or attempts to hand fight.

Big Picture

This massive Alabama guard certainly has some key deficiencies to his game but his wide frame and power mask his flaws very well. He's effective both as a run and pass blocker but was often asked to do things most teams don't ask 360 lbs guard to do. If Brown can continue to lose the excess weight while maintaining his stellar power, he's got series potential. Best suited for a run heavy man or gap scheme that likes to go downhill. Should be considered a mid to late day 2 high upside project type with impact player potential in the right situation.
