Marquise Brown Stats
Marquise Brown arrived at Oklahoma in 2017 and made an immediate impact. He led the team with 1,095 receiving yards and hauled in seven touchdowns in his first season in Norman. His 2017-18 numbers earned him an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention, and he followed this
Brown is a speed threat who has developed adept route running that should translate well at the NFL level. A fair comparison would be Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton, as someone who has the ability to run past safeties, yet still understands the nuances of defeating coverage.
Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown, a projected top 15 pick in April’s NFL Draft, underwent surgery for a LisFranc injury last month that will prevent him from participating in the combine and his Pro Day, but he still is expected to be ready for summer training camp, per league sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 18, 2019
However, Brown does have some major concerns with health issues. While he doesn't have a history of injuries, surgery to repair a recent LisFranc injury has now caused him to opt out of appearing at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine.

Marquise Brown Draft Predictions
Green Bay Packers (No. 12), Oakland Raiders (No. 24), Philadelphia Eagles (No. 25)
Brown's foot injury could drop his draft stock, but Mel Kiper Jr.'s Mock Draft 2.0 still had Brown projected as a Top-15 pick. There just aren't many teams in a position to take a luxury offensive player like Brown in the early first round this year. The Packers are a good fit, as Brown could be a lid-lifting slot receiver to take over Randall Cobb's role. Aaron Rodgers also hasn't really had someone with serious speed at his disposal in recent seasons in Green Bay.
The Raiders are in need of a No. 1 receiver after trading Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys last season. The Raiders were relying on Jordy Nelson and Seth Roberts to anchor their receiving core, but it just didn't work out.
The Philadelphia Eagles desperately needed explosive plays in the passing game that just weren't there consistently last year. Brown would be their deep threat opposite Alshon Jeffery and Golden Tate, should he be re-signed. But if the Eagles aren't able to lock up Tate, Brown could start his career in the slot position there as well.
