Rookie Rundown: WR A.J. Brown, Ole Miss

A true junior prospect, Ole Miss wide receiver A.J.
Brown enters the 2019 NFL Draft as one of the most highly rated players at his position.
His blend of size, sneaky athleticism and mental makeup will attract plenty of suitors.
Height: 6-foot Weight: 226 pounds 40 time: 4.49 seconds Brown was a four-star prep recruit played in every game as a true freshman, starting one.
A year later, he would be on the national radar after earning third-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-SEC recognition.
He would be a first-teamer int he SEC again as a junior and set the school record for yardage.
WR A.J.
He participated in the extended spring practices each of the past three years.
Tremendous route-running skills to create separation and master timing routes — extremely quick-footed Big-bodied receiver with an impressive build Highly competitive and easily coached Hands catcher and has a vault of film displaying his ability to lay out for a ball Dynamic out of the slot due to his ability to change direction, run multiple routes, shield defenders, and get nasty after the catch Tracks the ball well over his shoulders Quality blocker with room to improve Shows multiple gears going up and down throughout routes Difficult to bring down in the open field Tough, gritty, durable Needs a step to outrun most NFL defensive backs Could struggle to adjust to facing NFL speed and physical cornerbacks jamming him at the line Occasional drops — appear to be concentration lapses and may be correctable Could have a capped ceiling in the NFL of a WR2/glorified possession receiver Fantasy football outlook Brown looked freakish at times in college and has the makings of an NFL starter.
Brown is a late-round fantasy choice this year and has an outside shot of topping 50 balls, in the best-case scenario.
