Overview:

Brown was highly productive at Shepherd, where he played in 49 games, had 249 receptions, for 4071 receiving yards, and a whopping 43 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, he was a go-to receiver for Shepherd, he is sure handed, he is an offensive play maker, he is a tough nosed player, and he is a great deep threat. He also does a good job of beating his man, he also does a good job of getting yards after the catch, he is a good blocking receiver, he breaks tackles with ease, he is a good route runner, he is a good redzone threat, and is a big time mismatch for defensive backs. On the other hand he does not have great speed, but that does not hurt his game, and playing in Division 2 may be seen as a negative. With that said, I see Brown as a day 3 pick, somewhere in the 5th to 6th round range when it is all said and done.
