What are your measurements (height, weight and forty
I am about 236 pounds right now. I was about 6’1 at
Kansas State. The last forty time that I recorded
was a 4.46.
What schools recruited you when you were coming out
of high school?
It got down to five schools. Kansas State, North
Carolina, Alabama, USC and Miami, FL.
you eventually choose Miami, FL?
It was a decision that I made with my parents. We
all thought that it was a very conducive environment
for me not only as a player, but as a young man.
The main reason what drew me to Miami was my
position coach Micheal Barrow. I felt like he could
mold me into a player and a young man which was
important to me and to my parents at the time. That
was one of the main factors which drew me to Miami.
The campus, the people and the environment were the
right fit for me at that time.
Describe your career at Miami to us.
It was a learning experience to say the most. In
two seasons, I played majority of the snaps on
special teams. I played on kickoff and punt
returns. I didn’t see playing time at the LB
position. But it was just a growing process and a
learning experience for me. It is something that I
am thankful for.
Why did you decide to leave Miami?
It was a decision that was made along with my
parents. I wanted to come back home. I received
the advice from my father. He recommended that it
would be best for me to come back home.
Why did you decide to transfer to Kansas State?
I wanted to make the decision that was best for me.
But it wasn’t a decision that I made on my own. It
was a family decision. My parents felt that it
would be best for me to attend Kansas State.
Tell us about your career at Kansas State.
It was definitely more of a highlight for me. I
redshirted that first year. I had the opportunity
to come into a new system and learn it. I had the
opportunity to grow and develop as a player. I had
the chance to adapt to new personnel. I was very
productive the following year on the field. I had a
lot of help from my teammates. A lot of my
achievements couldn’t have been accomplished without
the help of my teammates. I give credit to them.
What makes your head coach Bill Snyder so
He is a great person and that contributes to his
success. He cares about people. He is a guy that
doesn’t look for the top talent. He is looking for
guys that care for others. He is looking for guys
who are willing to sell out for their teammates. He
is a great coach. He knows how to put the pieces of
the puzzle together. He knows the guys on the team
very well. He is able to bring new guys who will
compliment those guys that are already on the team.
What are your strengths?
It is my ability to use my speed and agility from
side to side. I can impact the game in so many
different ways. I am a playmaker. The key asset to
my game is speed.
What areas of your game are you trying to improve
I need improvement in all areas. I need to have a
better understanding of the game and the system.
Tell us about your Senior Bowl experience.
I wasn’t able to participate in the practices
because of a shoulder injury. It was hard because I
wasn’t able to compete against the rest of the
guys. It was a valuable learning experience for me
as a whole. That is why I stuck around throughout
the week. I wanted to see it from a different
perspective and take it all in. It was kind of like
an introduction to the next level.
Is this a serious shoulder injury that you are
dealing with? Or was it more of an injury
precaution to sit out the Senior Bowl week?
It was more of a precaution from my side, my
parents’ side and my agent’s side. I wanted to do
more rehab in order to strengthen it. I wanted to
be truly ready for the next step.
What did you learn about yourself during that week?
I learned that football is still the same. But
there is a business component that is added to it at
the next level. That was the introduction for me to
the NFL. I learned that you have to come in with a
business mindset. But you still have to enjoy the
Did you bond with any of the players at the Senior
Khaseem Greene was my roommate. He is an OLB from
Rutgers. He was a great influence on everyone. He
had a drive. He is a great player.
What can we expect from you at the Scouting Combine?
I plan on participating and being there throughout
the whole week. I plan on participating fully. I
will hold off on doing the bench press. My training
has been geared more towards field drills rather
than the weight room. I plan on doing pretty much
everything else. I hope to show my versatility at
the combine. I want to show that I can be
productive in any scheme.
Are you looking forward to the Combine? Is it
something that you are thinking about a lot?
I am not really thinking about it a lot. I am just
preparing physically and mentally for it. I am not
sure what to expect. But I am ready to perform for
whatever is to come.
What is the highlight of your football career up to
I would say that having the opportunity to come back
home. My parents got to see my college experience.
They had the opportunity to see me play at Kansas
State. I was also part of the team that understands
the value of team work. They really embraced it. I
am so appreciative of Coach Snyder. He is truly
about the team.
What separates you from all of the other players at
I really don’t know. I haven’t had the chance to
look at the other guys at my position. But the one
thing that does separate me is my commitment. I
definitely have an attitude. I will strive and
invest the time in being successful.
Who is your favorite NFL player?
I couldn’t point one out to you in particular.
What did you enjoy the most about playing college
It was mostly the relationships that were built
throughout time. Camp was also very memorable. It
was probably the most stressful time. It was the
part of the year that we all had to come together.
I think that it is the time when guys grow closer
and the relationships are built.
What is your definition of a leader?
It is someone who is willing to do whatever it
takes. It is someone who understands that his
success is depended on the success of others around
him. It is someone who cares for other guys and
leads those guys. He has to understand that he is
also in position of following. He has to depend not
only on himself, but on his team.
What is the greatest lesson that you have learned in
life thus far?
To make the most of the opportunities. You also
need to value the time and the people that you are
Who is the best player that you have faced over your
I played with some great guys on the defensive side
of the ball. Meshak Williams was a great leader for
our team. He was a great player. Collin Klein is
another exceptional leader. He was truly a guy that
I looked up to.
Why was Kansas State so successful this past season?
I would say that it was our leadership. It started
with Coach Snyder. We understand that he cares
about us not only as players, but as people. We are
all 100% behind him. We all bought into his
system. We believed in it. We believed in one
another. We played for each other day in and day
What are your hobbies?
When I am not on the field or training, I enjoy
spending time with my family. I speak to my mother
and father constantly throughout the week. If I am
not in direct contact, I am on the phone with them.
I speak to friends as well with the little spare
time that I do have away from football.
What has your brother Bryce Brown told you about the
Our relationship is not built around football. It
never has been. But it is something that we have
always participated in together. I haven’t talked
to Bryce a whole lot about the NFL. But I have been
able to watch him play and see him grow. I have
seen his whole approach to the game change. He
approaches the game differently now. I just have to
remember that it is a business. I just need to keep
everything in perspective. Enjoy the game and make
the most of the opportunities.
What do you plan to do with your life after your
football career is over?
No, I haven’t thought about it. I am taking it one
step at a time. I don’t want to get ahead of
myself. My next step is to perform and do great at
the combine. I don’t want to look past it.
At this point, is the NFL a dream or a reality?
It is a little bit of both. I have been playing the
game of football since second grade. I realized in
high school that I had the opportunity to take it
even further than I have ever dreamed of. Now I am
in the position to have this opportunity. I have
the opportunity to play at the next level. But I
feel that it is a dream that is unfolding into
Finish the sentence, Arthur Brown is….
I am a laid back guy. I am soft spoken. I
definitely have a passion for what I do. I know the
impact that I have on my family and others around
