LB ZACH BROWN
(on if this is where he expected to be drafted)
Yeah, late first or second round. I went second, so I'm happy where I am at right now.
(on if he knew the Titans liked him)
Yeah, they said they were going to make it happen. I am just ready to roll now.
(on if he is more comfortable at strong or weak-side linebacker)
It doesn't matter to me. To me I can play both, so really I am just waiting to see where they put me at so I can get going.
(on if he knows any Titans players)
I know DT (David Thornton) used to play there. I don't know anybody, but I played against some of them.
(on his relationship with David Thornton and how they met)
That's like my big brother… He was down at Carolina for like two years and we became close.
(on if they talked about the Titans)
As a matter of fact he just texted me and he was like 'alright now,' and that's when you called me. Me and him will have a good conversation.
(on if his game is similar to David Thornton's)
No, we have a totally different game. I just do me and just play as me.
(on the advice that David Thornton has given him)
Just to keep your head up even when we have been going through the adversity of the last couple years at Carolina, to just keep playing.
(on if football was ever not fun because of the adversity at UNC)
Football was always fun even though we were going through adversity. I was still trying to do what I had to do to help the team win. I just tried to do what I had to do to help the guys out and move past it.
(on his strengths as a player)
I can do a little bit of everything. I can blitz, I can cover, and I can stop the run. Put me out there and I'm a linebacker; if you ask me to do something I can do it.
(on if his speed helps him at linebacker)
I think it helps me cover the slot receivers and the running backs and the tight ends. Not a lot of linebackers can do that.
(on how he got the news that he was being drafted by the Titans)
They just asked me if I wanted to be a Titan and I was just happy to be a Titan. Right now, I'm a Titan and it feels good.
(on people saying that he is not a physical linebacker)
We are just going to have to see now. Everybody that said that's the nock, they are going to find out when the season comes.
(on where else he visited in the draft process)
Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and the Jets.
