Jaguars interested in Kansas State LB Arthur Brown

Doug Pensinger

Brown was named the 2012 Big 12 Conference Player of the Year and was a Second Team AP All-American.

While the second overall pick is much too high and pick 33 seems too low, the Jacksonville Jaguars "are very, very high on" Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown, according to USA Today's Tony Pauline. So much so that they met extensively with him in addition to attending his pro day on Tuesday.

Pauline seems to be impressed with Brown as well, and tweeted that he "plays like Ray Lewis II"; however, he also said that he thought the 19th pick was a little too early for Brown, in response to a question from a Giants fan. In the latest mock draft from SB Nation's Dan Kadar, he agreed with that evaluation, sending Brown to the Green Bay Packers with the 26th pick:

26. Green Bay Packers: Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State
The Packers' defense needs an injection of pure speed and athleticism. There is no more athletic linebacker in the draft than Brown. While he's not a pass rusher, he can fly to the ball if he's kept clean.

Brown, 22, is considered to be a little undersized for an inside linebacker (6-0, 241), but doesn't play as such and was named the 2012 Big 12 Conference Player of the Year and a Second Team AP All-American.
