Here is a great story as former Penn State safety Ji'ayir Brown gets drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in third round pick 87. Brown is an excellent player that will bring toughness, making the necessary plays to prevent the opposing player from catching a ball or scoring. His stats were great last season with Penn State playing 13 games, 74 tackles, 4 interceptions to finish off a strong senior year. Brown is a ball hawk which fits great with the 49ers defense and fans will love him.
49ers have a history of having fantastic secondarys throughout the years, Ji'ayir Brown and rest of the defensive backfield could be that next generation. This is a great value pick for them in the third round getting a player like Brown. They were targeting him from the beginning as he was high on their draft board. Plus no fourth round pick got them and felt concerned that someone else would draft him so they ended up trading up to get Brown. Ji'ayir could be a steal in this draft in my opinion with the productivity he brings from Penn State.
Last year Ji'ayir Brown made an appearance at a Trenton Thunder game live from Arm and Hammer Park as he threw out the first pitch. Before the game we had the opportunity to interview him as he talked about what is it like being back in Trenton visiting, helping the community, throwing out the first pitch, playing with Penn State, advice he got from other NFL players and continuing to improve as a football player. Brown is humble, interactive, hard worker, loves winning and focused.
Congrats to Ji'ayir Brown on getting drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, being a great story from Trenton New Jersey and they are getting a fantastic player.
