Tennessee Titans rookie report card: Week 5
By Will Lomas
2nd round pick, A.J. Brown: A
It is hard not to love A.J. Brown. For the rookie mistakes and drops he had in Weeks 2 and 3, he was an absolute game changer in Weeks 1 and 4.
Showing off some of the best YAC ability from any rookie receiver that the Tennessee Titans have had in franchise history, Brown turns 15 yard passes into huge gains due to his power and deceptive speed.
Right now other teams are playing Brown like he is the WR1 despite running fewer routes than Corey Davis or Adam Humphries, which Mike Clay talked about yesterday.
Through four games A.J. Brown is on pace for 40 receptions, 900 yards and 8 TDs. In Titans history there has only been 4 WRs with more TDs than that in a season: Drew Bennett, Kenny Britt, Derrick Mason, and Rishard Matthews.
Very promising start for the rookie.
