RB Brown’s play not a surprise to Marrone

He’s not going to be a starting running back in Buffalo, but Bryce Brown’s performance against Carolina Friday night was anything but a surprise to head coach Doug Marrone. As he sees it, he’s got the luxury of having a starting caliber back in Brown, who at best sits third on the depth chart.

Brown led the team in rushing Friday night and averaged almost six yards a carry against Carolina’s second teamers. That’s why Marrone wasn’t shocked to see Brown do so well.

“In my mind Bryce Brown is a very talented running back that has the potential to start in the NFL,” said Marrone. “So I think what happens a lot, when he is in the game I think he is one of the better players on the field. So, his production is not surprising for any one of us.”

Naturally Brown himself has the confidence in his own abilities to believe he could be a starter in the NFL.

“I feel like I could start in a lot of places. I feel like I could start here,” he said. “That’s my main goal. We’ve got some great guys in the room with me right now and I think that’s an advantage for me because I look at all those guys and having them in the room gives me a lot I can learn from and apply to my game as well.”
