ARTHUR BROWN READY TO JOIN HIS LITTLE BROTHER IN THE NFL

Posted by Kevin Bowen on March 5, 2013 – 6:58 pm

Last season, Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown would watch his younger brother carve up NFL defenses.

The appreciation and joy of watching a family member fulfill his aspirations was there for Arthur but while he was still playing college football, it was his younger brother Bryce (running back for the Philadelphia Eagles) that became the first to play at the professional level.

“It was (difficult at times) but it was exciting for me and my family to see him have the opportunity to live out his dreams,” Arthur said at this year’s NFL Combine.

“It was a little weird to say the least but interesting. I enjoyed it.”

The Brown brothers are separated by just 11 months and Arthur will get his crack at the NFL this fall.

Since growing up in Wichita, Arthur has been pegged as one of the finest linebackers in the nation.

He was a USA Today High School All-American in 2007 before attending the University of Miami from 2008-2009.

In February of 2010, Arthur transferred back home and finished out his college career with Kansas State.

Arthur was back in his comfort zone and playing at just 227 pounds, he was a dominant force in the middle of the Wildcats defense and was named the 2012 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.

An 18-pound increase during the offseason has Arthur ready for the physicality of an NFL linebacker but he promises that his speed is still there.

“Pursuing to the ball is a key element to my game and any defensive game,” Arthur said. “That is something I strive to always consistently do, aggressively downhill, always making plays in the open field.”

Next fall, Arthur will hopefully be chasing down his little brother after Bryce turned in a 564-yard rookie campaign.

Football has always been there for the Brown brothers and now it encompasses their entire life at the highest of stages.

“It was helpful to watch Bryce and his mentality, his approach, not necessarily to the game but the business side of it.” Arthur said.

“It has helped me in this process leading up to the combine and the draft. It is a business and you have to approach it in that manner and that has helped me keep it in a proper perspective.”
