Ravens selected Kansas State LB Arthur Brown with the No. 56 overall pick.
The Ravens stop Brown's slide. He was viewed by many as a first-round prospect. Brown (6-0, 241) earned 2012 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors, tallying a team-best 100 tackles -- seven for loss -- and two interceptions in the middle of Kansas State's 4-3 defense. Brown ran forty times of 4.67 and 4.68 at his Pro Day and performed 21 reps on the bench. Based strictly on tape study, Rotoworld prospects guru Josh Norris considered Brown a top-10 overall player in this draft for his stack-and-shed ability, consistent physicality, and range in coverage. He should step in immediately as a starting inside linebacker in Baltimore. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 08:12:00 PM

Draft insider Tony Pauline writes that Kansas State's Arthur Brown and UConn's Sio Moore are the two fastest rising players at the LB position.

Finally. "Several people on the inside continue to tell me Brown is a definite first round pick, which like means Kevin Minter or Manti Te’o are likely out," Pauline writes. "I’m told teams love Moore not only for his measurables but also because he’s scheme diverse." Pauline went on to mention Moore could be a top 50 selection and the Jets are showing strong interest.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown is visiting the Patriots on Tuesday.

It is an interesting visit, since the Patriots have invested early round picks in their linebacker group. However, their current starts do like coverage ability in the form of speed, and Brandon Spikes is on the final year of his rookie deal. Brown is an outstanding talent and can play inside or on the weakside.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown visited the Jaguars on Wednesday.

We consider Brown a top 10 talent, but he will likely be selected within picks No. 20 to 40. The Kansas State product and Miami transfer has the athleticism to play on the weakside behind a four man front, but also the physical mentality to work inside. He is a viable option at No. 33 if available.

The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein believes the Bears aren;t a lock to take a LB in the first-round.

Kansas State's Arthur Brown has been commonly mocked to the Bears, along with Notre Dame's Manti Te'o and LSU's Kevin Minter. Zierlein feels the Bears' "nice feeler contract with D.J. Williams" means they will wait on finding a middle linebacker. Perhaps a second day pick on a weakside linebacker, like Missouri's Zaviar Gooden, is more likely.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown has four visits scheduled this week, with the Bears, Rams, Jaguars and Bengals.

Brown could play inside or weakside linebacker for any of these teams. There were some questions about his health earlier in the process after missing the Senior Bowl, but Brown was no asked to medically rechecked at the NFL Combine. Our own Josh Norris considers him a top 10 talent.

The Chicago Tribune's Vaughn McClure reports Kansas State LB Arthur Brown will visit with the Chicago Bears.

Brown is considered a recent "riser" up draft boards, potentially landing in the first round. The Bears could be one of the teams that select the linebacker, as they hold the No. 20 overall selection. Brown was recently named a "top of the second-round" talent by NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah. He is six foot one and 236 pounds.

After watching one final tape on Kansas State's Arthur Brown, former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah considers the LB a top of the second-round talent.

"Sideline-to-sideline range, instinctive, productive," Jeremiah tweeted. "Inconsistent take-on player." Brown isn't of ideal size for an inside linebacker, but we think his aggression and strength to shed makes up for his "undersized" frame. He is an immediate starter.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown "is looking more and more like a top 32 pick," according to USA Today's Tony Pauline.

It is about time. Brown is a top-15 talent in this class and projects as a weakside linebacker in a four man front or inside due to his aggression and strength at the point of attack. We aren't sure what took so long, possibly his lack of participation in the Senior Bowl due to a shoulder injury, but Brown is an absolute stud.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown was dealing with a strained left quad during the NFL Combine to go along with the previously reported shoulder issue.

The shoulder injury kept Brown out of the Senior Bowl, and some reported that it could have been a serious issue. Both injuries have seemingly healed, since Brown completed a full workout at his pro day and looked healthy while posting good times.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay did not include Kansas State's Arthur Brown among the five 4-3 LBs in his updated two-round mock draft.

Dion Jordan, Alec Ogletree, Manti Te'o, Kevin Minter, and Sio Moore were the five who made the top 62 selections. This worries us a bit, since Brown has dealt with a shoulder issue throughout the draft process despite not missing a game during his time at Kansas State. We think his talent warrants a first-round pick.

National Football Post's Russ Lande writes that Kansas State LB Arthur Brown is a "favorite" among coaches and scouts.

"No doubt shorter than ideal at 6’0, his ability to read and react to the play so quickly, elite speed and explosive closing burst to give him sideline range has teams confident he will be a three down linebacker in the NFL," Lande writes. "Not only an outstanding player on the field, but regarded as a team leader with all the intangibles, Brown is a favorite amongst scouts and coaches. Although Brown may not make it into the first round of the Draft, we hear it is 50/50, he is viewed by many teams as the most complete inside linebacker in the Draft who has no character issues."

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown has "met extensively" with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

The Steelers would use Brown inside next to Lawrence Timmons while the Jaguars could slot Brown on the weakside in Russell Allen's spot or possibly at inside linebacker to supplant Paul Posluszny. We expect the Kansas State product to be a first-round pick.

According to draft insider Tony Pauline, Kansas State LB Arthur Brown "blew up" his pro day workout.

We already blurbed that Brown weighed in at 236 pounds and recorded 21 bench press reps, a notable number since some of have speculated he is dealing with a shoulder injury. Brown's forty time ranged from 4.58 to 4.62 seconds and during the workout he "was sensational, showing a quick change of direction and losing no momentum altering his angle of attack," Pauline writes. "He was fast in every direction and really solid in ball drills." We consider him a top 10 talent, although he might be selected much later.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown did 21 reps of 225 pounds at his pro day.

The 21 reps quell concerns about Brown's shoulders, which were said to be potentially a medical issue. Brown also had a 32.5 inch vertical and weighed in at 236 pounds. He's widely considered to be a 4-3 outside linebacker and is highly rated by the draft community.
