North Carolina State running back Andre Brown enters the 2009 NFL Draft as one of the better running back prospects. After earning Parade All-America honors coming out of high school in 2003, Brown spent 2004 at the Hargrave Military Academy (Chatham, Va.).
The 22-year-old rushed for 2,539 yards with 22 touchdowns scored in his career with the Wolfpack and is now looking to continue his career at the professional level.
Expected draft placement
Brown is one of the top five running back prospects in this year's draft and figures to be a borderline first-day selection. He is a big, tough runner who figures to fit in well in a zone-blocking running system but also could succeed in a limited role going along with a running back with a completely different style.
Brown has already conducted a private workout with the New England Patriots; he is scheduled to visit the San Diego Chargers, Tennessee Titans, San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars. He could be selected as early as the Patriots late in the second round and probably no later than to the Jaguars early in the fourth round.
