Each day we will take a look at one or two of the players with a little background information on them.
Today, we look at a small school defensive linemen in Wofford nose tackle Miles Brown.
Wofford defensive lineman MILES BROWN (6-2, 320) appeared in 50 games (49 starts) and collected 174 total tackles, 38 tackles for loss, and 13.5 sacks. As a senior in 2018, he led Wofford with five sacks and 9.5 tackles for loss to go along with 46 total tackles while starting all 12 games. A Cheverly, MD native, Brown was named to the All-Southern Conference first-team his final three seasons after being a second-team selection as a freshman. He was also a STATS and Phil Steele third-team All-American selection and was named to the Buck Buchanan Award Watch list last year.
From Emory Hunt:
Defensive Tackles Miles Brown (Wofford) and Rodney Jackson (Grambling) are your shorter defensive tackles that win with natural leverage, but also explosiveness and quickness off the ball. It’s easy to get fooled by their height, but that’s how many OL on Day 3 were fooled by that assumption.
From Tony Pauline:
Brown entered the season graded as a potential sixth-round selection but never elevated his play in 2018. He’s a short, sawed-off defensive tackle with above-average athleticism, but he has growth limitations. He doesn’t possess the power to be used as a pure nose tackle but could line up as a three-technique lineman or play on the nose in certain one-gap systems.
