”Heart bigger than my body”
Last season A.J. Brown took the league by storm from his very first NFL game after reaching the 100-yard threshold in his pro-debut and looked like a man amongst boys for much of that game.
The rest of his rookie year was much of the same, especially once he got settled in with the man he refers to as “sniper” following the mid-season Quarterback change. His presence provided an immediate impact to an often-stagnant passing attack and gave this fan-base a shot of life that this franchise hasn’t seen in many years (if ever).
Standing at 6-foot-1 and tipping the scales at a mammoth 226 pounds, Brown is a physical specimen who is a nightmare for defensive backs to cover. For whatever reason, A.J. was relatively overlooked coming into the league despite having fantastic college tape at his disposal. Many of the scouts felt that he wasn’t “athletic enough” to survive at the next level which led to him falling to Tennessee with the 51st pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Despite that silly narrative, The Titans’ talented wideout was the only rookie receiver to score a grade over 92 on the production score, despite coming in with an absurdly athletic score of 73.
Unfortunately for Next Gen Stats, they don’t have anything to measure someone’s heart and dedication to greatness because that is something that Brown would undoubtedly score at least a 99 on. The rookie receiver states that his ”heart is bigger than my body” which should be alarming for opposing defensive backs considering the fact that the physical specimen known as A.J. Brown is only getting started.
