Career Statistics: 132 catches, 2,413 yards (18.3 ypc), 17 TDs
Why Marquise Brown Is Here On The List: Way too small, and way too wispy, he has earned the Hollywood nickname with flash-of-lightning quickness and playmaking ability in the open field – even if he really got it because he’s from Hollywood, Florida.
He’s got the deep speed, he’ll rip apart everyone on the move, and he’ll scare the hell out of every secondary and every defensive coordinator. Don’t expect him to block, and he’ll be erased whenever anyone lays a hand on him, but he’s a big-time competitor with the fire and attitude to match the game.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Really, how quick is he? He’s a first rounder without question, but with his size he might end up going around the late 20s. If he’s just that fast and looks the part of being that much more athletic and quick than everyone else, hey might grow into a top 15 pick.
Bottom Line: You know what you’re getting. He’s among the most exciting players in the draft, he’ll be a devastating No. 2 guy, and he’ll instantly energize a fan base, an offense, and make a quarterback very, very happy. He’s not going to be a franchise target, but for those fantasy types who care about long touchdown passes and yards per catch, he’ll be a must-have.
