NFL Draft: Penn State Football Safety Ji’Ayir Brown Heading to Shrine Bowl

Penn State Football safety Ji’Ayir Brown has been one of the Nittany Lions‘ most dominant defensive players the past two seasons, and has accepted an invite to the Shrine Bowl, ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Brown capped his senior season with 66 total tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery, as a true difference-maker in the Penn State Football secondary.


A former three-star cornerback prospect, Brown wildly exceeded expectations across his three seasons in Happy Happy Valley. Brown produced 145 total tackles with nine interceptions, three sacks, three forced fumbles, and 10 pass breakups.

Brown, 5-foot-11 and 210 pounds, is expected to be one of the top safeties chosen in the 2023 NFL Draft, especially because of his coverage ability and versatility to drop into the slot at times, as well.

The East-West Shrine Game is slated for Feb. 2, 2023, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, and is gaining traction in recent years as one of the higher profile All-Star showcases ahead of the NFL Draft.
