My second day at the Texas vs The Nation game was much more interesting than the first. Instead of watching from the primary area of the press box, I moved over to an individual room where there was more action.

Good size, solid speed, excellent tackling are all qualities teams are looking for when they scout out a linebacker. Arthur Brown brings all that to the table and more. Brown was a preseason All-American and made first team All-Big-12 by the years end, living up to his preseason hype. On top of all those awards he finished the year with 91 tackles, a sack, and two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.  This was enough to earn him Big-12 Defensive player of the year. All these awards are impressive but let’s take a look at what he truly brings to the table in terms of talent and skill. (more…)

By BBD Editor Matt Elder

This game is in it’s second year and has made a few key changes this year. First off they no longer are allowing declared juniors to play in their game so for the first year the NFL will allow their scouts to attend. Secondly the game has paired with ESPN to both televise the game and also show four hours of practice coverage on Thursday January 17th.
