    Brown is an excellent athlete who took two years off from baseball at Western Carolina to play on the school's football team as a wide receiver, running back and quarterback. That speaks well of his athleticism, but it also leads to a quandry for scouts. If Brown was an 18-year-old high school kid, he'd be very intriguing as a center fielder with plus-plus speed and projection. Unfortunately, he's a 23-year-old college senior which means his rawness on the baseball diamond is harder to account for. The 6-foot, 185-pounder does know how to slap the ball, and his speed could make him a useful senior sign. He ranked eighth in the country with 34 stolen bases, helping Western Carolina win the Southern Conference tournament and earn a regional berth.
