Many interesting 2021 NFL Draft prospects will compete at the Senior Bowl this week as they prepare for the next level. With the NFL Scouting Combine essentially canceled this year, the Senior Bowl will be one of the only opportunities for these prospects to impress teams prior to the 2021 NFL Draft in April.
Prospect stocks will go up and down many times throughout the week, but one guy who particularly has a great chance to make a lot of money is Northern Iowa offensive tackle Spencer Brown.
Brown stands out as an interesting prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft class. He is a massive man, listed at 6-foot-9, 321 pounds, and he moves extremely well in space for his size. He entered college as a tight end, but bulked up and made an extremely successful move to the right tackle position. Now, Brown enters the 2021 NFL Draft as one of the most interesting FCS prospects in the class.
While he was completely dominant when he was on the field at Northern Iowa, it is fair to question Brown because of his level of competition. He was not exactly lining up against SEC defensive linemen on a consistent basis, but he took care of business against the players lined up against him.
Brown has tremendous arm length at the offensive tackle position which obviously helps him a lot in pass protection. He does a great job of getting into his pass sets quickly and can win against most speed rushers on the edge.
Brown is also a tough and physical run blocker who shows impressive natural power at the point of attack and has the mobility to have success as a second-level blocker. Simply put, he has the size and skill combination to be an impact pass protector and run blocker at the next level.
At the Senior Bowl, Brown will have a great opportunity to silence many questions about his game. The UNI product will face off against many top-tier 2021 NFL Draft prospects and with a strong performance, his stock will undoubtedly rise. He is already an interesting prospect but Brown has an opportunity to soar up draft boards in a big way this week.
