DeAndre Brown Scouting Report
DeAndre Brown
DeAndre Brown - Southern Mississippi (HT: 6-6 - WT: 239)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 24 of 50

Positives: Size and speed ratio are as good as any receiver in this class... Strong, a good blocker, can simply push smaller defenders around... Above-average hands, has big mitts and routinely makes the tough catch... Very fluid, everything looks like it comes easy to him... Hard to bring down after the catch, can run through arm tackles and is a load when he gets to full speed... Elite jumping ability, can go up and get the football with the best of them, will be a terror in the red zone... Truly a special athlete and great deep threat.

Negatives: Lazy route runner, rounds his cuts, gears down when changing direction... Numbers have dropped every year he's been at Southern Mississippi... Broke his leg at the end of the 2008 season... Missed seven games in 2010 due to injury... Major character concerns... Gives up on plays that aren't designed for him... Pouts when he's not getting the football... Had verbal disputes with coaches on the sidelines... Has bad body language on the field... Not intelligent, has been rumored that he did not qualify academically for most high level schools coming out of high school which is why he ended up at Southern Mississippi... Really needed to come back to school for his senior season, is a first round talent who will fall to the late rounds... Boom or bust type of player, has absolutely every physical tool a team could ask for but is not mentally prepared for the NFL.
