Dominique Brown only participated in 1 workout at the NFL Combine, and that was the bench press. He got 17 reps, which was good for 20th overall with running backs. Listed below are his measurements as well as an analysis from I must say, the scouting report on Brown pretty much lines up with what Bobby Petrino said about him during the season. The knock on him seems to be effort, and that is not a good thing.

Height: 6’2″

Arm Length: 32 3/8″

Weight: 234 lbs

Hands: 9 1/2″

Analysis from


Big back with power potential. Adequate vision with lower-body strength to dismiss angle tackles lacking commitment.


Rarely uses his size to punish. No wiggle and only gets what is there. Stiff hips and gears way down to make rounded cut. Not enough burst to accelerate through smaller creases. Urgency and desire missing as a runner.

Big back who doesn’t usually run like it and rarely imposes his will on second-level tacklers. Content to do just enough to get by, according to key evaluators in the league, and his loss of playing time was about effort and work ethic, which isn’t going to sit well with NFL teams. Brown’s size gives him a shot, but he doesn’t have the creativity as a runner to make it if power isn’t his calling card in the NFL.

Grade from

4.96 – Should be in an NFL training camp
