RB Malcolm Brown - Los Angeles Rams
|5-11, 224||Born: 5-15-1993||College: Texas||Drafted: ---|
2018 Week 2 vs ARI (12 / 46 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Brown took lead back duties from Gurley with 2:23 left in the 3rd quarter. On his first third down in the game, handled blitz pickup great, de-cleating a free blitzing ILB so Goff could make the conversion on a big catch-and-run to Kupp. He showed extreme reliability as a pass protecter throughout the game. Because of the Rams lead, he got quite a bit of work to close the game out - even with the Rams staying aggressive and throwing into the 4th quarter. He is a bit of a one-speed runner and is not particularly fast, but understands blocking concepts, has patience, and has enough physicality to run through arm tackles.
2018 Week 7 vs SF (13 / 65 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Brown got a decent amount of rotational work in this game, as the Rams seemed to feel like they had no reason to run Gurley into the ground against an inferior opponent who kept turning the ball over. While he had no flashy plays, Brown was efficient as an inside runner while spelling Gurley.
2017 Week 17 vs SF (14 / 54 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 7 / 0 rec)
Malcolm Brown filled in for Todd Gurley who rested for this game, and the difference was noticeable. Brown who ran a 4.62 40-yard dash runs hard, but speed is his biggest weakness while power is his biggest strength. He was able to make the most of a 20-yard pitch play in which he caught the ball and made contact with the initial defender about 9-yards downfield but was able to carry defenders for 11-yards. Brown did show off the trust in the receiving game as he was a check-down option for Mannion catching four of his five targets.
