Trenton "Trent" Brown (born April 13, 1993) is an American football offensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for Georgia Military College and the University of Florida. He was drafted by San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Early years

Brown was born in Bastrop, Texas. He attended Westover High School in Albany, Georgia and played basketball his first two years of high school before moving to football his junior year. Brown graduated from Westover High in 2011.[1]

College career

Brown enrolled in Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Georgia in the fall of 2011. He played for the GMC Bulldogs for two years, where the Bulldogs running game average 188 yards-per-game.[2] After displaying his skills at the junior college level, where he was named a second team NJCAA All-American in 2012, Brown was recruited by several NCAA Division I schools, including Arizona, Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia, Kansas, LSU, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Texas A&M.[3] Brown eventually chose to continue his college career at the University of Florida, signing a National Letter of Intent in December 2012 and enrolling in May 2013.[4] Standing at 6-foot-8 and weighing 363 pounds, Brown was the Gators biggest offensive lineman since Max Starks, who played for the team in 2003[5] and is believed to be the biggest player to ever wear a Florida Gators uniform.[6] At the beginning of his first year at Florida, Brown was used mainly on field goals and "Jumbo" packages in short yardage situations. He took over the starting tackle job in the Georgia game after Tyler Moore was injured and lost for the year. Brown moved to starting guard at the beginning of the 2014 season.

On May 2, 2015, Brown was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the 7th round with the 244th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.[7] Brown started the last 2 regular season games of his rookie season and played in a total of 5 games.

After being asked in an interview to name the blocker that gives him the most trouble, Denver Broncos' defensive lineman and Super Bowl MVP Von Miller said, "I feel like Trent Brown has a very bright future in the National Football League. He's 6-foot-8. He knows how to use his arms, knows how to use his wingspan and he has length. So I feel like he's young and people haven’t really seen him, but I feel like he’s one of the better tackles in the National Football League."[8][9][10]

Brown started all 16 regular season games for the 49ers in 2016.[11]
