Vince Browne NFL Draft Profile

Vince Browne NFL Draft Profile

Vince Browne, Senior, Defensive End, Northwestern



Vince Browne has flown under the radar during his highly productive collegiate career at Northwestern, but the NFL will start paying attention. As a freshman Browne was the first sub to come in at the defensive end position and he showed a ton of potential. Browne missed a few games with an injury, but still tallied 7.5 tackles-for-loss, 4.0 sacks and two forced fumbles. As a sophomore Brown stepped into a starting role, but failed to increase his production  much.

The minor sophomore slump did not carry over into 2010. Browne emerged as the Wildcats main pass rushing threat and was the only player on the team who could consistently get into the backfield. He ended the year ranking sixth on Northwestern with 58 tackles and easily led the squad with 15.5 tackles-for-loss and 7.0 sacks.


Final Projection:

Browne was the Big Ten’s sack leader for a while in 2010 before being slowed by a shoulder injury. He did not miss a game, but Browne was used sparingly for a while and that certainly slowed his impressive numbers. If he can pick up where he started in 2010 during his senior season, Browne will start to garner some much deserved attention and work his way up draft boards.
