Steelers Bring In Oklahoma WR Justin Brown For A Pre Draft Visit
Georgia wide receiver Tavarres King is headed to Pittsburgh for his pre draft visit, and according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports on Twitter, Oklahoma wide receiver Justin Brown was in for a pre draft visit on Monday with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brown, who did not receive an invite to the combine, measures in at 6031 and 207 pounds, ran a 4.60 40 yard dash at his pro day had a vertical jump of 30.5 inches, a 9\’09” broad jump, a 4.31 shuttle time and did 8 reps of 225 pounds on the bench.
In his one season at Oklahoma at transferring from Penn State, Brown registered 73 catches for 879 yards and 5 touchdowns. In his three seasons at Penn State, Brown caught 73 passes for 1,067 yards and three touchdowns.
Brown is a very athletic receiver for his size and possesses very strong hands. He was targeted 117 times last season and had a 61.5% catch rate. While a nicely put together receiver, Brown lacks great speed and is not a very polished route runner. In addition to being a pass catcher Brown also returned 22 punts last year for 299 yards and a touchdown.
