When it comes to receivers around the country, many analysts think Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown has the potential to be the best in 2018.
After leading the SEC with 1,252 yards last year, Brown is back for his junior year and ready to become a household name.
Recently, NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah analyzed Brown’s game. In the article, he named the NFL player Brown most reminds him of, comparing him to second-year Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster:
They both have outstanding size, play strength and competitiveness. I think Brown might be a little faster, but neither player relies on raw explosion to win one-on-one battles. They use their strength and craftiness to create space, and once they get the ball in their hands, they refuse to be tackled.
Smith-Schuster was a second round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. In 2019, Brown has a chance to be the first receiver off the board.
Brown will strike fear in opposing defenses this fall, and if he has another huge year, he could be playing on Sundays during 2019.
