How did AJ Brown’s rookie campaign compare to the NFL’s best?
Every NFL star gets their start somewhere. For some, it’s a quick rise to dominance and fame as the skills developed at the college level transfer over smoothly to the NFL game. For others, it’s a slow burn to the stop as they adjust to the speed of football at its highest level.
For the Titans star in the making AJ Brown, it looked like elite-level play was second nature at times last year, despite the 2019 season marking his first in the league. For stretches of his rookie year, it looked as though Brown was ready to be an elite receiver from the second he stepped on the field.
With the skills he showed and the numbers he put up, Titans fans along with the rest of the NFL world began to take notice of what AJ Brown has the potential to be– a top-level wide receiver, in the same camp as Davante Adams, or even DeAndre Hopkins.
Not only will the tape show Brown’s potential, but the stats will show it as well, and not just his own. When breaking down the numbers of the NFL’s best of the best pass-catchers, the Titans’ receiver compares more than favorably.
From Hopkins to Adams to Julio Jones, AJ Brown’s rookie season was either on pace or outpacing many of the rookie years from the NFL’s household names. Don’t believe me? Well, let’s take a look.
