RD 1 – Malcom Brown, DL, Texas

“Given that opponents frequently run the ball in an attempt to keep Aaron Rodgers and the explosive Packers offense on the sideline, perhaps it isn’t surprising that no NFC playoff contender ranks worse against the run than the Packers. The 6-4, 320-pound Brown is a stout run defender who add bulk and strength to an otherwise undersized front”–Rob Rang.

Brown would be a great pick for the Packers at the end of round one.

He’s not only a massive man and stout run defender, but he also offers a lot as an interior pass rusher. He gets great push off the line and possesses incredible quickness and athleticism for a 320-pound defensive lineman.

Brown also plays with a high motor and is very active in shedding blocks. His 6.5 sacks, 13 tackles for loss, and seven hurries this past season attest to his ability for making plays behind the line.

He would fit in well alongside Mike Daniels and Letroy Guion on the line, who are improved run defenders in their own right.
