Former Michigan State CB Shakur Brown draws high praise from PFF analyst
Shakur Brown was one of the bright spots for Michigan State during the 2020 season. The cornerback had a big year in his final season as a member of the Spartans.
Brown totaled 25 tackles, 5 interceptions and 4 pass break-ups last season, making his biggest contributions during MSU’s upset win over No. 8 Northwestern. The cornerback had 5 tackles and intercepted two passes off Peyton Ramsey in a 29-20 victory.
Even in a year when Michigan State finished with a 2-5 record, Brown was stellar. And Pro Football Focus (PFF) analyst Mike Renner agrees. As Brown prepares for the 2021 NFL Draft, Renner had a strong review of the former Spartan CB.
“You don’t need much tape on Shakur Brown to know you want to go to battle with him,” Renner said.

Over the last three seasons at Michigan State, Brown has been responsible for 54 tackles, 9 pass break-ups, 7 interceptions and a pick-six. He’s been a key defensive player for a team that has thrived on that side of the football over the past three years.
PFF is high on Brown’s draft status, listing him as a Top 100 prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft and ranking him as the No. 13 cornerback in this class.
