NFL Draft 2013: Arthur Brown visits Rams, Jaguars and Bengals

Peter G. Aiken-US PRESSWIRE

Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown is keeping busy, with visits to the Rams, Jaguars, Bengals and Bears this week.

Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown has a busy week ahead of him, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports he visited with the Chicago Bears on Monday, the St. Louis Rams on Tuesday, and then on Wednesday and Thursday, he will visit with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cincinnati Bengals.

Brown is part of a very talented inside linebacker class that also includes Notre Dame's Manti Te'o and Georgia's Alec Ogletree, all of whom are considered likely first-round picks.

On top of that, Brown's stock seems to be rising of late. While Te'o has been unimpressive in workouts and may be watching his stock fall, Brown's is higher than ever. As to where he'll actually be selected in the draft, that's unclear, but there's some high picks involved when it comes to interested teams.

For now, Jaguars hold the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, though obviously it's very unlikely that Brown goes there. If the team is interested in trading down, they could land him, or they could be hoping that he will be available with the first pick in the second round. The Rams hold the No. 16 and No. 22 picks, the Bears hold No. 20 and the Bengals hold No. 21.

All of those picks near the middle of the first round seem to be the consensus of when Brown wouldn't count as a reach. Of those teams, the Bears and Bengals seem to have the biggest need at the position, with Brian Urlacher going elsewhere and Rey Maualuga failing to impress since being drafted.

Where Brown goes and whether or not he is the first inside linebacker off the board will be one of the more interesting storylines come draft day.
