The 2012 NFL Draft is less than a week away and the speculation continues to swirl about who the San Francisco 49ers will pick in the first round.
The ex-LOT projects very well inside at the NFL level. He's got great "OG" footwork and an impressive initial punch and recoil. He fights through the whistle with impressive upper-body strength and physical hands. The Niners have invested several high round picks into the interior offensive line in recent drafts. Some good (Iupati) others not so (Rachal). But small-schooler Brown may need time to develop.
