2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Vincent Brown, WR, San Diego State

by Cory J. Bonini on April 8, 2011 @ 01:58:11 PDT

 


San Diego State senior wide receiver Vincent Brown is an interesting prospect in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Brown exploded to the tune of 69 receptions for 1,352 yards and 10 scores as a senior. He totaled 109 catches, 1,409 yards and 11 scores in his two previous seasons.

Strengths

  • Excellent hands and footwork
  • Not afraid to go over the middle
  • Quality route runner
  • Football smarts 
  • Vincent Brown, draft prospect
    Average speed and size isn't all bad
    Big-play threat
  • Mild kick return experience
  • Quite aggressive - willing to throw his body around
  • Fairly elusive in the open field
  • Finds holes on zone defenses

Weaknesses

  • Average speed (official 4.68-second 40-yard dash; 4.57 at his Pro Day)
  • Thin frame (5-foot-11 1/4, 187 pounds)
  • Injury concerns (torn thumb ligament in 2009)
  • Played lesser competition on a weekly basis (Missouri was his only BCS opponent last year)
  • Could struggle to block at the next level

Expected draft placement

Brown is probably a third- or fourth-round pick in the draft. At that stage, predicting a landing spot for him is a shot in the dark. He has recently met with the Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers, teams that could both use another wideout.
