NFL Draft

Brown was drafted in the seventh round (212th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Cowboys. He attended college at Cal Poly, a Division I-AA school, and started for the Mustangs for four years. Courtney is reported to have run a 4.39 40 yard dash by Scouts Inc and ran a 4.32 40 at his Pro Day work out at San Jose State Universitymarker before the draft.

Professional career

Although being projected to be drafted as early as the 4th round, Brown dropped into the seventh round possibly due to playing in Division I-AA. He appears to be fully healed from his knee injury. His speed and size are expected to give Brown a good chance to earn a spot on the 53 man roster of the Dallas Cowboys. During the Cowboys' 2007 training camp, head coach Wade Phillips moved Brown to free safety because of an already deep corps of cornerbacks and because of agility issues.
