Miner DB Cornelius Brown has signed with the Chicago Bears (first reported by NFL Draft Bible).  Three UTEP Miners have now signed free agent contracts with NFL teams.  Earlier in the day, safety Da'Mon Cromartie Smith signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Wide receiver Jeff Moturi has signed a free agent contract with Bear's rival Green Bay.

Brown had a spectacular workout at UTEP's pro day.  NFL.com's Gil Brandt reported that Brown had the following numbers:

CB Cornelius Brown is a solid draft-worthy prospect, and he enhanced his standing with a fine workout at UTEP’s pro day on March 11. Brown ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 and 4.47 seconds, had a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, a 31-inch vertical jump, a 4.35-second short shuttle and a 6.84-second three-cone drill.

Cornelius had 7 career interceptions at UTEP and led the Miners in INT's last season (3).  He also accumulated 7 pass breakups and blocked 2 kicks.  Brown's professional pursuit was spurred on by a terrific performance at the Texas vs. the Nation game where he was named the games Most Valuable Player.  Here's hoping Cornelius becomes another one of those Texax/Nation game success stories.
