I was really impressed with this kid. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see him starting by season's end. Granted, that's due in part to my expecting a certain FA acquisition to flop. But I think Brown is a guy who could be a #1 target soon.

When I watched him play, he reminded me of DRC in 2009, when he was an upper echelon corner. I think I read that DVD is expected to start, and I'm interested in watching him develop.
He definitely showed the ability to shadow a WR and stay in his hip pocket. Trouble is, he's one of the least aware CBs I've ever seen. Over at Black Reign, people have taken to calling him "Traffic." As in, the guy he's covering will get credit for catching a pass in traffic. A pretty easy feat against DVD since he never looks back for the ball or seems to expect it to come his way.

Still, the fact that he can stay in such tight coverage without a lot of grabbing caught the eye of a lot of fans. If awareness is something you can teach, the potential is there.

He's not expected to start, however. If Spencer or Bartell doesn't perform, though, DVD might be the first guy off the bench to vie for the job...unless the new coaching staff values tackling ability.
