Summary

With the Bengals missing out on Devin Bush in the draft, Preston Brown is set to be the starting middle linebacker. With Vontaze Burfict moving on, Brown is set to be a three down player. This will not be his first time in that role. Brown was a starter with the Bills at the beginning of his career. In Buffalo he reached 80 solo stops and 60 assists in both 2016 and 2017. Brown is not a big play linebacker but is adequate in coverage along with being a quality run stopper. He worked mostly as a two down middle backer for the Bengals last season before being lost to injury in week ten. As a three down linebacker Brown projects to have fantasy value as a solid LB3.
