AJ Brown Scouting Report

AJ Brown Scouting Report
(USA TODAY Sports)

Strengths:

  • Size
  • Routes are fast, but he adds speed variance when needed
  • Competitive
  • Route running is elite for this class
  • Ball skills
  • Strong hands
  • Wins contested catches
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Versatile-can play from outside or slot

Weaknesses:

  • Was dominated against elite competition
  • Focus drops
  • Needs to prove he can work downfield against NFL speed
  • Sometimes too much finesse in routes

Analysis: AJ Brown is our second-ranked wide receiver prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft and comes in at number two solely because we have his Ole Miss teammate, DK Metcalf, ranked higher based on his ceiling. Brown is the better receiver right now, and should be the one of the first receivers off the board. A fiery competitor, Brown has the size and demeanor to take on a relatively heavy workload as a rookie for any QB. He is a solid route runner and has strong hands to win contested catch battles. I did not like seeing him get handled by the elite SEC competition, specifically LSU and Alabama, but that should just be an outlier in his game.

Size: 6’0 226lbs
