Marquise Brown Scouting Report

STRENGTHS: Marquise “Hollywood” Brown has unique, difference making type of speed…Brown has shown the ability to stretch a defense vertically as well as horizontally on crossing routes…he is a huge problem for opposing defenses—one in which they have to game plan for weekly…plays the game with a ‘chip on his shoulder’ mentality…a gamer…he sees the open field very well and does a good job of avoiding the big hit…great body control…an explosive, dynamic weapon in the downfield passing game—gamebreaking ability is second to none…

WEAKNESSES: Marquise Brown has wildly inconsistent hands—something that he will need to work on a great deal at the next level…his lack of size and stature is a HUGE concern…at just 165 lbs. you have to wonder if he can hold up to the physical nature of the NFL…is tackles very easily…he’s never going to help you as a blocker downfield…he is not going to develop into a red zone option—his size simply won’t allow for it…

COMP: DeSean Jackson/Brandin Cooks combo

OVERALL: Another one of the more fascinating prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft, Marquise “Hollywood Brown” has some tantalizing skills, but also some glaring weaknesses. Some will point to him as a “One Trick Pony” giving his speed element, but if he is indeed a “One Trick Pony”—it’s one heck of a trick. I think he is more than that, hence why I add in the Brandin Cooks comparison. Great after the catch, can work well on bubble screens, can cause real match-up problems. I like him more than most, so I would draft him towards the end of Round 1, but ultimately I expect to hear his name called in the 2nd round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
