A.J. Brown is a special player, not only because of his college production, but also due to his rare size for a wideout that occupies the slot. Don’t get me wrong, A.J. can play on the outside, but sharing the field with Damarkus Lodge and D.K. Metcalf allowed him to play in his most fitting role. When’s the last time you saw a 226 pound slot receiver? Honestly, I can’t name one. The most similar player in the NFL right now is probably JuJu, who measures in at 6’1 215, but even at that stature, Brown outweighs him by over 10 pounds and ran a faster 40 (4.49 to 4.52). Brown even laid a very JuJue-esque block (the one he pulled on Vontaze Burfict) against LSU this past season, further displaying the similarities in their games.
