Penn State linebacker Cam Brown was the Nittany Lion’s fourth player selected in the 2020 NFL Draft on Saturday when the New York Giants selected Brown in the sixth round with the 183rd overall pick.

Brown only started two games during his career at Penn State but played in 51 of 52 games for the program over the last four seasons. After quality freshman and sophomore seasons, Brown really took steps forward in his junior and senior seasons.

This past year, Brown set a career high in tackles with 72, which included 5.5 tackles for a loss and two sacks. He also had four pass deflections, a forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries. For his career, Brown finished with 199 career tackles, including 15.0 for a loss, and 5.0 sacks.

Brown will be reunited with several former Penn State teammates in New York as he joins running back Saquon Barkley and cornerback Grant Haley. All three were teammates in Happy Valley during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. You can read more on Brown by reading his “So You Drafted” profile.
