Levi Brown was here in Indy.
No, not the Cardinals’ right-soon-to-be-left tackle/Pro Bowl alternate Levi Brown, but the Troy hoping-to-get-drafted quarterback Levi Brown. Levi the QB has some size – 6-foot-3, 220 pounds – but Levi the tackle “is a little bit bigger than me,” he acknowledged.
(Levi the tackle? 6-5 and 324. Just a little bit bigger.)
If Levi the quarterback wasn’t aware of Levi the tackle once upon a time, he certainly was in April of 2007. “It’s weird,” Levi the QB said. “A couple years ago when he was coming out, people saw it on the news he got drafted and I had some people calling me, sending me text messages and asking my parents, ‘Did Levi get drafted already?’ I was like, ‘I’m only a sophomore. How am I going to get drafted?’ ”
At the time, Levi the QB was actually in the middle of transferring. He had been teammates with current Cardinals running back Tim Hightower at the University of Richmond. He sat out 2007 while transferring to Troy. And now he comes out for the draft after throwing for 4,254 yards and 23 touchdowns as a senior, projected to be a mid-to-late-round draft pick in a year where the Cardinals are expected to draft a quarterback in the mid-to-late rounds.
He could be reunited with Hightower. Or meeting his eponymous tackle.
“Maybe there will be two of us on the same team,” Levi the QB said with a laugh. “That would be interesting.”
