Brown was listed as my No. 1 receiver in this draft class due to his versatility and pro-readiness. Unfortunately, he landed with the Titans, who already have Corey Davis, and signed Adam Humphries to a big contract this offseason. That means Brown will be relegated to the perimeter, which is not where you'd hoped he'd play, as he did most of his damage in the slot at Ole Miss. He's a rock-solid player who's stuck in a very hit-or-miss offense, limiting his upside.

Brown has the skills to thrive in this system. It is not an ideal landing spot, but could quickly become one if Mariota improves, or if he does not and they move on to a more talented rookie next year.

He won't have the draft capital of Metcalf, but I think Brown's game will produce a safer floor. Landing spot will determine if Brown's place in the rankings after the NFL draft.
