It’s crazy to me that Ole Miss may have two receivers go in the first two rounds. Metcalf kind of shadows over Brown, but he’s has a great season. With his skills in the slot and after the catch, he could be a great addition to a lot of teams.
The Ravens desperately need a receiver. Their core is clearly lacking. Brown wouldn’t be able to fill the void that John Brown has left but he would be a solid addition that would help the core as a whole. AJ Brown could be a reliable passing target for Jackson and could help his growth. If the Ravens still lack weapons, they may make him play on the outside which wouldn’t be a major issue for him. Overall, he may see a lot of coverage and it may not be the most beneficial place fantasy-wise.
The Steelers are another team that I hunk would make perfect sense for Brown. Juju will probably move to the outside, so they can draft Brown to fill in as the slot guy. He would help take some pressure off of Juju and could help to make up for the loss on Antonio Brown (That’s the third person I’ve mentioned named Brown). Obviously he won’t be the same, but I think there’s a good fit for him. There’s a role that he can fit into and he would definitely benefit with Big Ben as his QB. We’ve seen Juju have great success in that role and Brown could be due for some too if that’s where he goes.
The Patriots can also use some more weapons and I think they take Brown round 2. He would be relevant there with Brady as his quarterback, but it depends what else the Patriots do in the draft, like if they take one of the top three tight ends. With too many weapons, it’ll be hard for Brown to stay relevant. I wouldn’t be bouncing on Brown in preseason, but if it seems like he has a good role carved or for him early on, then I’d certainly take a shot off the waiver wire. It’s kind of a boom or bust scenario if it happens.
It’s very close to me going Steelers or Pats, and while I think the fit is better with the Steelers, I think they’ll end up taking a different receiver 👀
