Notes: Also earned two letters each in basketball and track, in addition to playing safety, running back, quarterback and seeing action returning kicks as an Arizona prep. Redshirted in 2006. A reserve defensive back in í07, saw action in all 13 games (27 defensive snaps) and was the teamís top special-teams performer, notching 13 tackles. Started 6-of-12 games as the nickel defender in í08 and logged 52-4-1 with three tackles for loss. Had offseason left shoulder surgery for a labrum tear but played in all 13 games in í09, starting the final 11 at left cornerback, and tallied 66-15-2. Started all 12 games at LCB in í10 and logged 46-5-3 with two tackles for loss. Team captain.

Positives: Good size and speed. Has big hands. Feisty, competitive playing temperament. Experienced in press man coverage and can jam and disrupt receivers at the line. Quick feet and good balance. Shadows receivers in short area and tries to jump routes. Has special-teams experience. Solid character and work ethic. Maintains less than seven percent body fat.

Negatives: A bit rigid in his pedal and tight transitioning. Gets beat over the top. Average instincts. Downfield ball skills are lacking ó puts himself in position but does not have great hands and isnít a finisher. Can be outmuscled, loses positioning in the air and will struggle to contend with big receivers. Occasionally opens his hips too early and is susceptible to double moves. Lacks an extra gear to recover. Struggles to disengage from blocks. Drag-down tackler. Struggled in one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl and looked mechanical in movement at the Combine.

Summary: Good-sized, aggressive, self-confident scrapper with good height and timed speed, though he lacks starter-caliber ball skills. Will not be intimidated, has a special-teams mentality and shows the makings of a functional sub-package contributor.

NFL projection: Third- to fourth-round pick.

Scott Porter: What do you feel are your biggest strengths?

Jalil Brown: I feel my overall athletic ability is one of my biggest strengths. I also feel that you don’t find many cornerbacks that have the size and speed combination that I have. There aren’t many 6’0/200 lbs. CB’s that can run and be effective in press coverage like I am. I have been blessed to be coached by a DB coach who produced two Jim Thorpe award winners in Deon Figures and Chris Hudson while at Colorado. I feel I have been well coached and understand the game very well. I am good at throwing the timing off of WR’s and QB’s and disrupting route running.

Scott Porter: What are your goals for the NFL?

Jalil Brown: My main goals are just to make an impact right away wherever I end up. A goal of mine is to make an impact playing either the CB position or the nickel but if not I want to make an immediate impact on special teams. Wherever I go I just want to make that impact. I don’t want to wait around for playing time. I want to learn and go in there and get a feel for the NFL early on.

Scott Porter: What player in the NFL most reminds you of yourself or is there one you model your game after?

Jalil Brown: That is a good question. I don’t really have one that comes to mind. I feel I am an interesting player because of my style for being a bigger CB and the things I am able to do as a bigger CB. I do like to watch the Jets cornerback. Darrell Revis is a big press guy and I like to mimic what he does on the field. He is one of the best in the game so to pick up on things that he does and learn by watching him is something I find myself doing a lot of. I try to pull things out of his game and plug them into mine to be a complete CB like he is.

Scott Porter: What do you feel are your biggest football accomplishments?
Jalil Brown: One that really stands out to me is my first ever interception at Colorado. It came vs. Colt McCoy while playing Texas. He threw the ball and I made a good play by reading it and stepping in front and making the interception. I ran 50 some yards down to the 17. It happened so fast and it was a great feeling. I feel my overall career is a great accomplishment. I am very happy and satisfied with how I played while at Colorado. I had great coaches in Greg Brown and Ashley Ambrose and feel I am well prepared.
Scott Porter: What type of a person is an NFL team getting in Jalil Brown?
Jalil Brown: They will be getting a person who has a great character and makes good decisions. I am always up beat and I am a leader. When people start complaining I often remind them of the big picture. That is success comes with sacrifice. To be successful you work hard at it and the sacrifice you make will be worth it in the end. I always give 100% effort. I am very respectful. I am the type of person that I accomplish whatever I put my mind to. I am very determined and work hard for success.

Scott Porter: Who has been your biggest influence throughout your playing time at Colorado?

Jalil Brown: I would say it is a combination of people. My dad has always been a great support to me. He is my biggest fan and my biggest critic. When I lose focus he makes sure I get the focus back. He is always there to encouragement and helps me grow as a person and player. My position coach Greg Brown has been a major influence to me as well. I didn’t play cornerback when I came to Colorado. He helped develop me and he has developed me into the player I am today. I am very thankful for him. He is a big reason why I have been so successful and he has been a big reason why I am in the position I am today.

Scott Porter: What do you feel will be the toughest transition from the college level to the NFL level?

Jalil Brown: That is a good question. I feel I have been blessed and fortunate to have the physical characteristics that a lot of players do not have. I guess I would say perhaps the biggest transition will be getting the mental aspect of the game and the technique down in the NFL. I will have to adjust to the technique needed to be at the top level in the NFL. Everything has to be on point, the technique and the mental aspect of the game. I have to work on getting my mind right and just work hard and be prepared that all of this is on point with each other to be the best player I can get at the next level.

Scott Porter: What hobbies do you have off the field?

Jalil Brown: I enjoy reading. My family, my aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents etc. were always big into camping so that is something I have always enjoyed doing. I like snowboarding out here in Colorado when I get the chance. I like hiking and watching and playing a lot of different sports. It allows me to see the hard work that goes into each sport and helps me with my football skills.

Scott Porter: Do you have any pre-game rituals?
Jalil Brown: Yes, I do. My mom always sends me a
before every game. It is of a bible verse so I read that and I pray before each game. I put my headphones on and listen to a game day tape to get myself ready for the game. I always visualize the game before I go out on the field. Whatever team we are playing I visualize that color in the stands, and I always visualize a positive outcome to keep myself positive and ready. I go everything in my head to get ready for the game mentally

FYI just know that alot of football minds out here both CU and Broncos thought Jalil was better than Jimmy. Mayock even said a similiar thing this a.m.:thumb:

Another good pick:clap:

Looks like we're back to picking Jesus-loving hard-working nose-to-the-grindstone smart team captain players.

I'm fine with it. ESPN just said he was the best CB available and that the 4th round was appropriate.

People act like we don't need CBs. We need depth everywhere. This is a fine pick.

The one thing I will say about this is you just never know who you're going to be able to pay and who you won't be able to pay. We probably can't pay both Carr and Flowers.

He's 6'1, 205lb. He'll be on the outside in dime packages. Arenas has the nickel spot locked down.

Good value. I think Pioli has guys like Gates in mind with this pick. He's big, and physical enough to jam TEs at the line of scrimmage, and slow them down long enough for Hali, and Houston to kill the QB, and eliminate the quick dump offs.
Arenas can lock up on the Harvin type slot WRs, and this guy can lock TEs down. In what has become an air it out or die league, you can never have enough good DBs.
Looks like Pioli is sticking to his board, and picking what he believes to be the best player available later in the draft.

Flowers is getting big money, and after Carr's elevation from a 5th round pick into a guy who would start for just about any team out there, he's gonna want to test the market.

Exactly, I am overall pleased with this pick...we needed DB help and for those who think otherwise need to consider how much nickel and 4 DB formations we run considering the pass happy NFL.

Actually after the raping we took in the playoffs, this is spot on.

We couldnt cover the TE all season long last year...

Not saying it won't cost some money, but unless a new, lower salary cap is imposed, they should have no problem making it happen.

Okay, we can go back and forth on this all day. I'll say this - with the Chiefs developing roster, if we are at a point where we are already drafting with the intent of jettisoning young, productive, starting players, then we will never contend.

Excellent point. We were absolutely murdered by TEs over the middle last year and had no answer for it. Maybe this is the plan rather than a replacement for Carr or Flowers.
