High school career

Browner was a Prep Star West All-Region and All-Valley Mission League selection at Sylmar (Calif.) High School as a senior. He also earned Mission League MVP honors. As a junior, Browner played at Monroe (North Hills, Calif.) High. During his prep career, he competed as a receiver where he accounted for 1,726 career yards and 24 touchdowns, and on defense as a cornerback where he recorded 16 career interceptions. As a senior, he also returned three punts for touchdowns. At Monroe, Browner lettered in track, competing in the high jump and 200 meters.

College career

Browner played in college for Oregon State University. Browner redshirted in 2002 at Oregon State. He then went on to start in every game he played in for the Beavers. Browner was named to the Freshman All-America teams by the Football Writers Association and The Sporting News in 2003. He was chosen Pac-10 Conference Freshman of the Year and was a member of the All-Pac 10 second team. He ranked ninth in the nation with six interceptions and recorded 43 tackles (37 solo) with six pass breakups, two forced fumbles and three stops for losses as a redshirt freshman. He helped the program weather the 2002 departures of Dennis Weathersby, Calvin Carlyle and Terrell Roberts.

Browner added All-America and All-Pac 10 Conference honors from The NFL Draft Report in 2004. Lining up at right cornerback, he regularly faced the opponent's top receiver. Browner recorded 44 tackles (37 solo) with a sack, nine pass deflections and a blocked kick in 2004. He finished his two-year collegiate career with 87 tackles (74 solo), a 2-yard sack, five stops for losses of 16 yards, two forced fumbles, 15 pass deflections and six interceptions for 74 yards in returns and a touchdown.

Pro career

Browner was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Denver Broncos in 2005. Browner impressed coaches with several interceptions and aggressive play in training camp and was a strong defender in goal line and red zone drills. But the promising undrafted rookie from Oregon State fractured his left forearm Aug. 20 against San Francisco. The Broncos placed him on injured reserve August 25, 2005 and he missed the entire 2005 season. On July 24, 2006, the Denver Broncos waived him to make room for other players.

Browner signed with the Calgary Stampeders of CFL in 2006. His speed and competitive effort have made him a fan favorite in his short time with the team.
