Saints Nation: Saints Pick Charles Brown 64th Overall in 2nd Round

Charles Brown is the newest selected player to join the Saints. He manned the left offensive tackle position for the USC Trojans this past season. Brown was rated as the best player available on most expert's boards, so the Saints likely went with the best player available. With Jammal Brown, Jermon Bushrod, Jonathan Stinchcomb and Zach Strief all currently under team control, I think this makes a Jammal Brown trade even more likely.

Below are his strengths and weaknesses, per

Strengths: "Brown has good height and adequate frame. Has long arms and an effective punch to get inside defenders. He is athletic with a quick first step and lateral agility. Bends knees well to gain leverage. Played in a pro scheme and has good instincts for the game."

Weaknesses: "Does not have the necessary bulk and will need to gain weight. Can lunge at defenders and does not have a strong initial surge. Does not play with a mean streak and is inconsistent finishing off blocks."
