snapshot STOCK WATCH Ten former Cavaliers worked out for scouts from 30 NFL teams at UVA's annual pro day March 15 in Charlottesville, and the event provided an opportunity for them to boost their draft stock. Defensive lineman Andrew Brown (pictured) did just that by improving on the 5.03-second 40-yard dash time he posted at the NFL Scouting Combine Feb. 27-March 5 in Indianapolis, clocking a time of 4.84 seconds in his first attempt and a 4.9 in his second. He also checked in at 6-3 and 289 pounds, which was seven pounds less than at the combine. "I came in with the mindset that it's going to happen re- gardless," Brown, a former five-star recruit, told The Daily Progress when asked about the prospects of hearing his name called during the NFL Draft. "The process has calmed down some, but I still just have to put my head down and keep grinding." The general consensus on Brown's draft stock at the conclu- sion of the 2017 campaign was that he would be a sixth- or seventh-round pick, or an undrafted free agent. Following a strong showing at the Senior Bowl and his pro day perfor- mance, though, many draft analysts viewed him as a poten- tial third-, fourth- or fifth-round selection.
