With the 51st pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans selected A.J. Brown. The receiver out of Ole Miss likely immediately fills the WR2 role for the Titans. With the run we saw in interior offensive linemen, Jon Robinson’s hand was forced a bit here.

Robinson definitely has a type at receiver. Brown’s production was some of the best in the class, going over 1,200 and 1,300 yards in his final two seasons at Ole Miss. Brown caught 19 touchdowns during his time in Oxford.

Brown weighed in at 6-0, 226 pounds at the NFL Combine, running a 4.49 in the 40 yard dash.

The Titans chose Brown over the likes of D.K. Metcalf and Hakeem Butler with the 51st selection.
