If you’re looking for a relatively unknown pick to click in training camp, who could possibly play well enough in the preseason to make the 53-man roster, or at least the eight-man practice squad, James Brown might be the guy.
Brown is a 6-foot-4, 306-pound offensive tackle from Troy with better-than- average athleticism, but he went undrafted partly because of concerns about his work ethic and dedication.
Brown struggled at right tackle early in camp but has played better since offensive coordinator Mike Tice moved him to left tackle.
“He’s got some athletic skills,” Tice said. “But I’m not thinking of moving him ahead of J’Marcus Webb or Chris Williams.”
Those two will decide who starts at left tackle, but Williams is a developmental project who has enough physical skills to play in the NFL.
