A.J. Brown Stats
A.J. Brown was one of the best receivers in college football this season, tallying 1,320 yards and six touchdowns on 85 receptions. 2018 was Brown's second consecutive season of hauling in more than 1,250 receiving yards, as the talented junior amassed 1,252 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2017.
Brown is a technician, and while he isn't as athletic as some of his contemporaries, he more than makes up for it with his excellent route running. That being said, Brown's lack of athleticism might put a cap on his ceiling, as he'll likely never be as dynamic as many of the NFL's top receivers.
Brown projects as an excellent WR2 in an offense that utilizes possession or slot receivers. He should be a reliable receiver at the next level because of his strong route running, high football IQ and ability to consistently move the chains.

A.J. Brown Draft Predictions
Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 20), Oakland Raiders (No. 24/No. 27), Indianapolis Colts (No. 26)
The Pittsburgh Steelers might move on from Antonio Brown this offseason, and the Oakland Raiders must find a replacement for Amari Cooper soon. A.J. Brown is an excellent fit with the Steelers or Raiders, as Brown is the ideal complementary piece to JuJu Smith-Schuster in Pittsburgh and could compete for the WR1 position in Oakland.
However, the best fit for A.J. Brown could be with Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. T.Y. Hilton is undoubtedly a fantastic WR1, but he's more of a deep threat than a true possession receiver. Pairing Hilton and Brown together would allow Hilton to take the top off the defense, while Brown focuses on the short and intermediate routes.
