I actually remember this guy getting a little hype coming out of Texas and was said to have fallen in the draft only because of character concerns. Not sure if that's the case, but he definitely has a future on the team.
A little hype???
Tarrel Brown was considered the best corner in the country before his off field incident that got him suspended for the Ohio State game between two top ten teams.
As a matter of fact...I remember vividly that people questioned whether or not Texas would still win without Brown on the field on defense.
He was always considered a top flight prospect...the "character issues" caused an inexcusable drop and I was estatic when we took him in round 5. One of the steals of that draft.
