Biography

 
PRO: The Titans selected Jayon Brown in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.  The 6-foot, 226-pound defender was identified as an immediate candidate to participate in subpackages and to be a key contributor on special teams.  He possesses tremendous speed for the position and excels at covering tight ends and running backs.  At UCLA, he was a two-year starter and led the team in tackles during his junior and senior campaigns.
