Weight: 225 lbs
Projected pick: Top 20 Pick
08/21/2011: Zach Brown is my top rated Outside Linebacker in this 2012 NFL Mock Draft. He is the third player to come off the board in my 2012 NFL Mock Draft from UNC. The first two are Defensive Lineman and Zach Brown is a very good outside Linebacker. However, he may not go as high as projected because a lot of teams are switching from a 4-3 to a 3-4. He projects as a 4-3 LB in the NFL so there would be limited teams interested in him and also an Outside Linebacker in a 4-3 is not as important position as most other positions in the defense. All in all Zach Brown is a good player and one of the top players in my 2012 NFL Mock Draft who projects to a 4-3 immediate starter.
