Draft Analysis:

Brown has good hands but lacks the special qualities to become anything more than a rotational receiver in the NFL. Kansas City adds some camp competition in this unit with this pick. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

Quarterback's friend. Opens wide and gives quarterback a very presentable target. Makes full use of his catch radius, snagging wild pitches in every direction. Very few drops. Natural, hands-catcher with ability to focus and make contested catches. Can run on jet sweeps, using stiff-arm as a weapon.

Weaknesses

Drifts into dig routes rather than sinking hips to brake. Marginal play speed, relying on build-up over acceleration. Stiff hips and upright through routes. Rounds his routes and gets little separation out of breaks. Very limited in routes he was asked to run. More of a possession receiver than dynamic threat.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Outside receiver with limited speed and athleticism who is heavily reliant upon his outstanding hands. Unlikely to be able to be able to find separation on the next level without requisite quickness.
