    Arthur Brown: New Steelers ILB in the 2nd?

    If you follow my twitter account you’d know by now Arthur Brown/LB blew up his workout. He tipped the scales at 236lbs and posted 21 reps on the bench; a terrific number for someone who was dealing with a shoulder issue. His forty times ranged between 4.58-to-4.62. During drills Brown was sensational, showing a quick change of direction and losing no momentum altering his angle of attack. He was fast in every direction and really solid in ball drills. We are hearing late first round is now a possibility. Late word is the Jacksonville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers met extensively/had dinner with Brown.

    He's a guy I like quite a bit in the Farrior role for our defense. He's a stud.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Played OLB at the U in their 4-3 and moved inside at Kstate. He has played both very well. Not an OLB in the 3-4.

    Nice writeup on him. I was going to post that I kind of liked your last years LB Bobby Wagner better. But looking at their profiles they are quite similar.

    Name: Arthur Brown (Transfer from Miami)
    College: Kansas State Number: 4
    Height: 6-0 Weight: 241
    Position: OLB Pos2: ILB
    Class/Draft Year: rSr/2013
    40 Low: 4.52 40 Time: 4.62 40 High: 4.74
    Projected Round: 2 Stock:
    Rated number 4 out of 247 OLB's 46 / 2910 TOTAL

    Name: Bobby Wagner
    College: Utah State Number: 9
    Height: 6-0 Weight: 241
    Position: OLB Pos2: ILB
    Class/Draft Year: Sr/2012
    40 Low: 4.42 40 Time: 4.46 40 High: 4.58
    Projected Round: 2 Stock: High: Early 2 Low: 3
    Rated number 4 out of 135 OLB's 49 / 1971 TOTAL

    He has gained a lot of weight in a short time.

    TS will probably not be able to get him. He has moved up too high. But that is probably because that is not a deep grouping. I am beginning to think that ILB is a very hard position to fill.

    Is it me or do the Steelers like 4-3 OLB's for there ILB's?
