Combine Interview: Zach Brown

Inside Carolina
Posted Feb 26, 2012

INDIANAPOLIS --- Inside Carolina was at the NFL Combine this weekend for the media interview session with UNC linebacker Zach Brown.


What are you expecting for your 40-yard dash?
“I want to run at least a 4.39. Low 4.4s or 4.3s, either one of them, but I just have to wait and see when Monday comes.”

How much does your speed set you apart from others in the draft?
“It sets me apart a lot, because I can run down backs and I can guard receivers and tight ends. A lot of linebackers can’t do all that, so it sets me apart a lot.”

As far as your play and character, what are you trying to show the NFL personnel and coaches here at the combine?
“I’m just trying to show them that I’m not that guy with a bad image. I’m not (like) the people who were here last year with all the trouble. I wasn’t involved in any of that. Just to answer all the questions about that.”

Everybody talks about your speed, but what do you need to show the NFL as far as being a physical guy who can take on offensive linemen and fullbacks?
“I use my speed for a lot of the stuff I do, but then again, I can overpower certain people like offensive linemen. I’m not as weak as they think I am. I can bull-rush an offensive lineman, so I can show them if I need to.”
