Arthur Brown of Kansas State has overtaken Manti Te'o of Notre Dame our new top-rated middle linebacker, and it has nothing to do with a girlfriend hoax. While Te'o may have the power advantage, his BCS National Championship game performance showed he has limited range. Brown, comparatively, can make plays all over the field. Brown could have the same kind of impact on a defense that Navorro Bowman does in San Francisco.
