According to Joe Everett of RookieDraft.com, the New England Patriots, in addition to the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns, have set up a private workout with Texas cornerback Chykie Brown.

Brown, who stands at just over 5'11" and 190 pounds, missed the end of his senior season at Texas, breaking his forearm in a game against Kansas State.  Brown, similar to Devin McCourty, isn't the tallest, but has long arms and a long build.  He also has good speed, running a 4.49 at the combine just a couple of weeks ago.  Brown is best in man coverage, he has good technique and is good at breaking up passes.  Brown isn't going to amaze anybody with his recognition or football intelligence, but he's an intriguing prospect who certainly has a very high ceiling considering his length and intelligence.

Brown is projected by many to go sometime during the early parts of day three of this April's draft, likely between the mid-fourth and early sixth round range.
