Brown has one of the best packages of tools in the Big 12 Conference, but he doesn't always play up to them. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder has plus speed and raw righthanded power to go with solid arm strength and center-field defense. The question is how much he'll hit in pro ball. He has a hesitant approach at the plate, struggles against breaking balls and whiffed 53 times in 52 regular-season games. He also needs to get more aggressive to get the most out of his physical ability, which remains tantalizing enough that he could go as high as the fifth or sixth round.
