INDIANAPLOIS – Charles Brown is one of the top-rated offensive tackles in this year’s draft pool, and he’s no stranger to Seahawks first-year coach Pete Carroll or second-year defensive end Nick Reed.
The Carroll connection is obvious. Brown played for Carroll at USC.
“I saw coach Carroll today, so I’m already a little nervous,” Brown said at the NFL scouting combine this afternoon. “He’ll do great. He’s a competitor. As soon as they get some players they’ll be winners.”
But what about Reed? He and Brown played against each other in 2008. It was the fourth game of the season. Brown remembers. Or perhaps can’t forget is a better way to put it.
Asked when he allowed his last sack, Brown said, “It was Oregon. Nick Reed.”
