Kansas City Chiefs Select Jalil Brown, CB, Colorado

With the 118th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected CB Jalil Brown from Colorado.

Scouts Inc. assigned a rating of 74 to Brown and ranked him as the 14th CB.

It’s hard to get attention when you play with troubled (and supremely talented) Jimmy Smith, but Brown is plenty talented in his own right.  He spent five years at Colorado, so you he brings with him plenty of experience, including 29 starts.

At nearly 6’1″, Brown gives the Chiefs a big, physical corner that will be best served playing up on the line of scrimmage.  As Kansas City’s safeties continue to improve, a player like Brown could prove to be valuable in press coverage.

I bet you can guess this already, but Brown was a co-captain for Colorado.  He also took home a team award for hard work, dedication and toughness in the weight room.  Another good citizen for the Kansas City locker room.
