While the numbers may be lacking in the position group, Ji’Ayir Brown still has the overall look of a player that will be drafted. The athleticism score from the NFL’s next-gen stats was a bit upsetting to see following his overall combine performance, but there are other strong indicators going in Brown’s favor as he approaches the draft.
What Brown lacks in athleticism compared to others, he more than makes up for in production. The NFL’s next-gen stats gave Brown the best production score among safeties with an 89. His athleticism score brought him down (56, 18th among safeties), but he still leaves the combine as the second-best rated safety with a total score of 79. And the overall assessment of Brown suggests Brown will eventually be a plus starter in the NFL.
So all in all, this combine experience appears to have treated Brown pretty well.
