Steelers Select WR Antonio Brown With The 195th Selection 26th Pick In The Sixth Round Of 2010 NFL Draft


Steelers selected WR Antonio Brown with the 195th selection 26th pick in the 6th Round Of 2010 NFL Draft. Brown led the nation in punt returns as a senior and could find a role as a return specialist in the NFL. He returned five kickoffs and punts for touchdowns at Central Michigan. Brown also had 305 receptions in three seasons for the Chippewas, the second-highest total in Mid-American Conference history. In 2009 alone, Brown caught a school record 110 passes for 1,198 yards and nine touchdowns. At his pro day, Brown ran a 4.47-second 40-yard dash after running a 4.57 at the NFL scouting combine in February. Brown is a slot receiver, but can work anywhere on the field. Brown likens his style of play to Santana Moss, DeSean Jackson and Roscoe Parrish. They are speedy, smaller, multi-faceted guys who can return kicks as well as play slot receiver. The biggest knock on Brown is he tends not to like to go over the middle of the field. He shys away from contact. Brown came out after his junior year after losing most of his coaching staff at CMU including his receivers coach. Brown will battle 3rd round pick Emmanuel Sanders for a roster spot and could be a practice squad candidate. His return capabilities could be the difference on if he makes the roster.

Below is some videos and video highlights of Antonio Brown:

    Good Luck to Antonio. I enjoyed watching him play at CMU. Don’t be surprised if he turns into a decent return specialist in the NFL!
