Training Camp: 5 Ravens Desperate To Prove Themselves
5. Arthur Brown:
Arthur Brown was drafted in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Ozzie Newsome felt so strongly about the Kansas State linebacker, that he moved up to Brown. Brown has been a disappointing player for the Ravens. He was expected to be the next great linebacker for the Ravens. Brown has not seen much time on the field, which really say it all.
So far, Brown has just 17 tackles, and half of a sack on his resume. In his rookie season, Josh Bynes and Jameell McClain got most of the playing time next to Daryl Smith. While Brown has suffered injuries that haven’t helped, that’s only part of the excuse. Brown was supposed to be a star. He was a freak athlete at Kansas State. He has all the physical tools. This talent has not developed into anything for the Ravens.
Brown has talent. If the light turns on he may be able to steal a starting role. One thing is for sure, he has to be competent on special teams. If he is not a starter and he is not a good special teams player, he won’t provide much value to the Ravens.
