When Malcom Brown hit the field, everyone else stopped to watch. Brown, a projected mid-first round pick, was the star of Texas' pro day as expected Tuesday. The coveted defensive tackle stood by his NFL scouting combine testing numbers but did perform positional drills run by three NFL defensive line coaches: the Colts' Gary Emanuel, the Lions' Kris Kocurek and the Bengals' Jay Hayes.
Before Texas begins its first season under Charlie Strong, we're taking a deep dive into all the talent he inherits in 2014. Our Burnt Orange Breakdown series will take a closer look at each scholarship player returning this fall and what we can expect from them.
Editor's note: This is the first part of a weeklong series breaking down Texas' most important spring position battles when the Longhorns begin practice in two weeks. Moving on: Texas is losing, statistically, one of the best wide receivers in its program's history in Mike Davis.
We've been counting down the 10 best games of the year in the Big 12. Here's No. 6, a true nail-biter that nobody saw coming.
