Dynasty Rookie Draft Profile: Chase Brown

Chase Brown Dynasty Rookie Draft Outlook

Chase Brown has good vision on zone runs and with finding cut-back lanes. He does hesitate at the line when he should explode through the hole. However, he ran with more conviction as the 2022 season progressed.

He’s a runway back. Brown doesn’t display the ability to make the first tackler miss in the hole, but once he’s into the second level, he displays a good second gear and the ability to set up his blocks. Brown isn’t blessed with overwhelming lateral agility. He gets himself in trouble when he hesitates at the line or tries to bounce some runs outside. He doesn’t have the raw athleticism to get away with this. 

But Brown does display soft hands in the passing game, mostly utilized as a check-down option or on the occasional rail route.

Chase Brown 2023 NFL Draft Outlook

Brown is a pretty good pure runner with a strong lower body, and good footwork, who proved that he can carry the load as a workhorse in a highly productive senior season.

However, he is on the small side for the position, lacks special athleticism and is a relatively straightforward safety valve in the passing game. He definitely put himself on the map this season, but he will probably end up in a running-back rotation, paired with a receiving back and perhaps a more dynamic option. Looks like a mid-round pick.

Projection: Round 4-5
