Strengths: Brown brings an explosive offensive presence to the floor. He is very quick and crafty with the basketball, making it hard for defenders to stay in front of him. He is a very good perimeter shooter, is able to create space for himself, and possesses a quick release. Brown has a good first step, which translates into him often getting into the lane and creating shot opportunities for teammates.
Weaknesses: At 6'2" with sneakers on, Brown doesn't have ideal size for a point guard. His slight build makes it tough for him to fight through screens. Physically he could struggle against bigger guards. While his assist numbers did improve last season, Brown still isn't a true point guard. He is more of an undersized combo guard. Despite his explosiveness, Brown doesn't often drive all the way to the basket, resulting in a low number of free throws attempted.
Outlook: Brown has a wide range of possible suitors in the NBA. He could go anywhere from late-first round to late-second round. He may be the best kept point guard secret in his class though. Brown isn't a pure point guard, but he has tremendous explosiveness and good court vision, skills that could make him a great back-up.
