Donald Brown -- Words and Deeds

This Washington Post feature about the UConn running back, who led the nation in rushing yards and is part of the best draft class in school history, discusses how he's doing just as much off the field.

My opinion on the guy--he will be a durable back for 6-7 years--never the flashiest guy, but one who gets the job done. As a Saints fan, I see a career like Deuce McAllister--around 6,000 yds, 50 TD's, fan favorite.

Sounds like a pretty good player. He'll need a good nickname, though, if he is to become a fan favorite. I suggest "Duck." Rather obvious, yes, but that's why it'll be so memorable.

I loved his International Bowl performance.*

Caveat - I'm a UConn alum.

As someone who grew up in CT (and is at UConn for law school), I think it would be great for the program if Brown was a success in the NFL. If he could have a career like Deuce...all the better.

Joe Pisarcik Magnate - I too loved his International Bowl Performance. I felt for him a lot of times this season, because it seemed like he completely carried them.

D Brown going to be great rb in Nfl. Goodo chance he get draffted by s aints , browns, cardnals, pakcers or jets, Jaguars or Redskins,. Jagars could be good team for him if think about it. f Taylor gone to ne so Jagasr ned other guy to play in rb pisition to give rest when Maurice Jonesdrew need rest or spot time. so Brown come in there and give quail play when needed
