Bobby Brown III is an interior defender that’s built like a brick house. He possesses a very mature body that helps him maintain leverage as a run defender on the interior. He’s proven to anchor well and has the lower-body strength to stand pat at the point of attack. Brown III does everything that you can ask a run defender to do on the interior of the first level. While he isn’t a big sack artist, he has the ability to create pressure strictly off of gaining penetration with his natural strength. Playing mainly the 1-technique, he has gained lots of experience against double teams. He’s routinely able to use his mature frame, power, and short-area quickness to create quick wins along the interior. While his value mainly shows up pre-third down, his presence in the middle causes constant problems for offenses when his motor constantly runs. On/off-ness is the biggest weakness associated with Brown III's game, especially as a pass rusher. There are times where he appears lackadaisical and won’t give much as a pass rusher when he’s shown to be much more consistent beforehand. He turns into a ball swatter instead of first trying to get pressure on the QB. His three-down value will always be a constant debate due to his motor and it leaves a lot to be desired because of the potential that he has shown in spurts with doing so.
