The Los Angeles Rams have selected Northwestern defensive lineman Earnest Brown IV with the 174th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The 6-foot-4 1/2, 270-pound Brown took home All-Big Ten honorable mention recognition in 2020 – his first season as a starter – after collecting 32 tackles (8.5 for loss) one sack and four pass breakups. His 8.5 tackles for loss ranked second on the Wildcats last season.
It was a bounce-back response by Brown to a 2019 junior season in which he played only six games due to injury and posted 15 tackles (2.5 for loss), two sacks and two pass breakups as a reserve.
