A.J. Brown certainly came into the NFL last season with much less fanfare than his college teammate D.K. Metcalf, but the Ole Miss product quickly showed he belonged just as much, if not more. Brown racked up 1,051 receiving yards and 8 TDs on 52 receptions, averaging more than 20 yards per catch.

Heading into his second season in 2020, CBS is predicting Brown will take a leap forward on those already impressive numbers, saying he will haul in between 1,100 and 1,200 receiving yards.

These types of numbers would more than likely land him in the top-10 at the position and give proof the Titans have a true star on their hands for years to come.

While it might not seem like an incredibly bold prediction based on last year's numbers, players have been known to take a statistical dip in their sophomore campaigns. Not to mention, the Titans had some losses on their offensive line, mainly with Jack Conklin leaving for Cleveland in free agency. Plus, you can't exactly assume that both quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry will both put up career years again in 2020 as they did in 2019.

So while it might not seem like a big bump for Brown himself, it's not crazy to assume the offense around him won't be as good, which could potentially hurt his prospects.

Regardless, anytime someone is predicted to put up almost 1,200 receiving yards, especially in his second season, it's worth taking note. Titans fans should be very excited about the future of Brown in Tennessee.
