Ji’Ayir Brown is a fourth-round projected safety and depending on the site you are reviewing scouting reports, is considered a top-five or a top-ten safety in this year’s draft.

He’s logged over 1,500 collegiate snaps and played in the competitive Big Ten conference.  Over the last two seasons at Penn State, he totaled 9 interceptions.  In his senior year, he added ten quarterback pressures and three sacks.

He made Bruce Feldman’s Freaks list, coming in at number 69.  Bruce had this to say about Brown:

"” In 2021, he made six interceptions, the most by a Penn State player in 15 years, to go with 73 tackles and two fumble recoveries. The 5-11, 208-pounder has elite quickness, clocking a 3.99 pro shuttle time this offseason. He also ran a 4.45 40 and bench pressed 370 to go with a 345-pound power clean.”"

No doubt he could turn some heads with an impressive performance at the combine and if he aces the interview process, he could potentially climb draft boards by the time the draft comes around.
