Brown’s going to have an uphill battle to make the Rams’ roster, as the team already has first-rounder Todd Gurley and five other running backs with previous NFL experience: Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham, Trey Watts, Chase Reynolds, and Isaiah Pead. With that said, Brown was considered by many to be a draftable talent in the late rounds, and he could push someone like Watts or Reynolds for a roster spot if he shows strong skills on special teams.

The 5-foot-11, 224-pounder showed some solid skills as a collegiate player at Texas, particularly as a junior, when he ran for 904 yards and nine touchdowns on 214 attempts. He also showed strong skills as a receiver out of the backfield. Brown will have a challenge ahead of him because he has to prove himself as both a talented runner and special-teamer, but as one of the Rams’ more esteemed college free agents, he should have at least a solid chance to end up on the practice squad.
