Amon-Ra St. Brown
WR - DET
As you assess the Lions receiving corps, it's impossible to not be excited about St. Brown and his opportunity in this offense. With players like Breshad Perriman, Tyrell Williams, and Quintez Cephus above him on the depth chart, St. Brown has the talent to work his way into a starting role as early as Week 1. With Jared Goff's tendency to keep the ball close to the line of scrimmage, we could see St. Brown peppered with targets in 2021. The scoring opportunities might not be plentiful with this offense, but there's a world in which St. Brown leads all rookie receivers in catches this season. My Very Early Projection: 71-834-3 receiving.
The competition for targets from Goff should be pretty wide open. Keep an eye on this rookie when training camps start.
If there's a depth chart that would allow a fourth-round pick climb into a fantasy viable role, it's the Lions. They brought in Tyrell Williams and Breshad Perriman, two receivers who have very little experience in the slot. St. Brown is someone who is projected to be the slot receiver for them, which is a role that suits Jared Goff's strengths. Will he start right away?
(112) 6'1" 195 lbs, 21 yrs old, early declare, "Broke out" as a true Freshman
• 30%+ dominator
• One of the more technically sound WRs in this class. He's physical in blocking game, punt return ability, and position versatility lining up inside and outside. NFL pedigree as well. @RayGQue
Played on the opposite side of Pittman in 2019 but mostly in the slot. Set up Pittman nicely on at least 1 TD with a nice rub route. Was still able to garner 21% of the teams receptions(77) and 24% of the yardage(1042).
Led the team in receptions his rookie year.
- Physical Blocker that can sustain the block if he gets on you. Can also get run over, sooo..
- Finds soft spots in zone
- Sure hands 90% of the time, but does that make him not sure handed? Haha had some concentration drops year 2. Video of him working out with jugs machine in the offseason, but who doesn't? Idk, at least we know there is some work ethic.
- Good burst off the line when he chooses to do so
- Decent jab step at full speed. Speed is good, not great
- Lateral ability is a bit clunky at slow speeds, not great for crisp routes and can allow defenders to get around him on blocks, but is just crafty enough for decent YAC ability(ball in hands reminds me a bit of Keenan Allen)
- Knocked around easily sophomore year
- A bit of wasted motion off the snap in year 2 as well, wonder if it's intentional though?
Might lack a top gear
