To say that the 2013 season was a disappointment for Vincent Brown might be an understatement. Or was it? After being selected in the third round of the 2011 draft, Brown has had a tough time making his mark. Despite flashing great ability, on a team that has hoped he would be a major contributor, Brown has yet to make a major impact in the NFL. And without sounding like I am piling on the former Aztec, he had a few issues on route progressions as well. It has appeared, at times, that he is not on the same page with San Diego’s favorite son, Philip Rivers.
When Brown was selected by AJ Smith I must admit that I was stoked. He came into the league as a solid route runner with great hands and an ability to high point the ball and attack it with his hands. Brown’s route running more than makes up for his lack of blazing speed. The question remains whether or not Brown can be a consistent and effective number two wideout in the league.
As much as I would like to continue to believe in his potential, I must be honest and cognizant of the fact that the “P” word will get your ass sent out of the league in a hurry.
That being said, I expect Vincent Brown to have a breakout year in 2014…… Say what?!?!?!
I have expressed my opinion regarding the need for Brown to step it up, and I expect him to do just that.
“Wait a second, Booga. You have made it clear by taking a wide receiver in the first round of your mock draft that wide receiver is a huge need??”
Yup, it is. But who the hell am I? I still have hope that Brown will be the PERFECT compliment to the 76th pick in last year’s draft. But how much stock should I put into my own beliefs? I tend to think that I have a decent grasp on the NFL and its workings.
I’ll leave the question to you. Do you think Vincent Brown will rebound in 2014? Let me know by voting and supporting your vote while leaving a comment below.
