Draft Scout *Malcom Brown News
12/26/16 - DT Malcom Brown, the former first-round pick who started 13 of the first 14 games of the regular season, reportedly was late to a team meeting last week. He didn't play on defense until late in the fourth quarter of the win over the Jets.
12/19/16 - DT Malcom Brown was sidelined with what was officially announced as a stomach injury for portions of the win in Denver. But the second-year defender returned to the field and even notched a key sack in the fourth quarter.
06/22/15 - DL Malcom Brown, selected by the Patriots in the first round of the draft (32nd overall), signed a four-year contract Friday (June 19).
Brown started 26 of 39 games over his three-year career at Texas and finished with 165 tackles, 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and six passes defensed.
05/05/15 - Patriots fill need inside with Texas DT Brown...Married with two children, the 20-year-old Brown is perceived to be a mature presence off the field and a somewhat uniquely versatile force on it. "I'm just relentless," he said. "I want to be the best there can be and the best I can be, so I'm going to do that when I get there." Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia attended Texas' Pro Day earlier this spring and actually spent time breaking down film with Brown. Though Brown will clearly be asked to fill a more stout role for the Patriots' run defense in the post-Wilfork era, Belichick did acknowledge that his newest player is "athletic for 320." Of course, Wilfork brought his own unique athletic style to his role as a Pro Bowl defensive tackle.
While Belichick wouldn't elaborate on any potential trade talk, he did admit that he and personnel director Nick Caserio were contemplating a number of possibilities as the first round came to a close, not necessarily focusing on addressing a need at defensive tackle. "We tried to consider all the guys that could help our team at that point for value," Belichick said. In the end that resulted in the selection of the Wilfork replacement in Brown with the 32nd pick. A pick on a Malcom that was earned by a play made last February by a Malcolm Butler interception to clinch victory in Super Bowl XLIX. Anything to the Malcom/Malcolm thing? "Coincidence," a relaxed Belichick said with a smile. Belichick left the first round with a major need checked off and headed into the second and third day of the draft with eight remaining selections, including three the second day that should address other top areas of consideration including cornerback and guard. - The Sports Xchange
05/05/15 - Patriots fill need inside with Texas DT Brown...Despite the presumption that the New England Patriots would be trying to trade out of the 32nd pick in the first round of Thursday night's NFL Draft - and even a Twitter report from the Boston Globe that New England actually had dealt out of the spot a few slots ahead of the selection - head coach Bill Belichick decided to stay put to close out the first day of the now three-day affair. That led to New England filling out one of its top perceived needs by selecting Texas defensive lineman Malcom Brown. The 6-foot-2, 319-pounder certainly has the potential to fill the void left by the spring departure of Pro Bowl team captain Vince Wilfork, who'd been a mainstay along the New England line for more than a decade. It also marks the second straight year that Belichick tabbed a defensive lineman with his top pick, having taken Florida's Dominique Easley with the 29th pick last spring.
Despite the confusion of the possible trade - of which Belichick said simply "Well, we made the pick" - the coach seemed rather content when he met with the New England media shortly after the selection. "Based on the players that were on the board," Belichick explained, "we felt like he was the best player for us." Brown played a variety of spots across the defensive line during his career with the Longhorns, including more playing time on the outside this past fall under the direction of first-year coach Charlie Strong. - The Sports Xchange
