Brown, who measured at 6-foot-5.5 inches and 310 pounds, participated in workouts on Friday and Saturday and performed in the top 25 consistently during the combine. He recorded a time of 7.43 seconds in the three-cone drill, which ranked No. 5 overall among offensive lineman. The top time was Jeff Baca of UCLA at 7.26. Baca also had the top 20-yard shuttle time at 4.44 seconds along with Eric Fisher of Central Michigan. Brown ranked No. 15 at 4.7 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle.  

A Salt Lake City native, Brown ran a 5.2-second 40-yard dash to rank No. 19 overall among all offensive lineman timed and also ranked 19th with a vertical jump of 28 inches. Terron Armstead of Arkansas-Pine Bluff achieved the top marks in both categories with a 4.71 40-yard dash and 34.5 vertical jump.  

Brown did 26 reps on the bench press, which ranked 23rd overall. Ohio's Eric Herman totaled 36 reps to lead the way. Brown's 100-inch broad jump ranked 26th with Lane Johnson of Oklahoma having the top distance of 118 inches.
