Draft Scout A.J. Brown News
12/05/18 - Mississippi receiver A.J. Brown has announced that he will skip his senior season and enter this spring's NFL draft. The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Brown had a stellar three-year career for the Rebels, and was recently named an AP All-Southeastern Conference selection this season after catching 85 passes for 1,320 yards and six touchdowns. He is the school's all-time leading receiver with 189 career receptions for 2,984 yards and 19 touchdowns. Brown's decision was expected. He's widely considered one of this year's best NFL prospects at receiver. The Ole Miss football program posted Brown's decision on social media Tuesday. Brown thanked Ole Miss in a statement, saying "I'll never forget the place that turned me into a man." - AP College Football
12/04/18 - WR A.J. Brown announced on social media that he will forego his senior college season and make himself available for the 2019 NFL Draft. Since the Rebels did not qualify for a postseason game, Brown does not have to decide whether he would play in a bowl game. NFLDraftScout.com projects in its mock draft that Brown will be the 20th overall selection in the first round of the upcoming draft.
11/06/18 - WR A.J. Brown is projected as an early first-round draft pick. Ole Miss coaches have liked him in the slot as a matchup advantage, due to the coverage he's likely to draw there. The plan often works. His move last week to the outside, though, is a chance for Brown to further showcase his skills and versatility. He got off to a good start against South Carolina, with six catches for 115 yards, his 10th 100-yard game.
11/06/18 - WR A.J. Brown continues to climb Ole Miss receiving lists. He's fourth in career receptions with 170 and third in receiving yards with 2,584. He needs just 63 yards at Texas A&M this week to become the school's all-time leading receiver.
10/08/18 - Mississippi came within 7 yards of the Southeastern Conference record with its national season-high 826 yards of total offense against Louisiana-Monroe. It was the biggest output nationally since Oklahoma and Texas Tech each amassed 854 yards against each other in October 2016, and in the SEC since Paul "Bear" Bryant's Alabama Crimson Tide piled up 833 yards against Virginia Tech in 1973. The Rebels went over 500 yards for the fourth time this season and rank seventh in the country at 540.8 per game. They had 517 yards passing and 309 rushing and scored on their first nine possessions against ULM. DaMarkus Lodge, A.J. Brown and DK Metcalf each had more than 100 yards receiving in the 70-21 win. Ole Miss' 49 first-half points were its most since it had 42 in two quarters against Houston in 1958, and its 536 yards in the first half were most by an SEC team in at least 15 years. The only other team to generate 800 total yards this season was Boise State, which had 818 against Connecticut on Sept. 8. ULM, it should be noted, went into the game 112th in the nation in total defense, at 471.8 yards per game. The onslaught left ULM's defensive average to 530.8, which ranks 127th out of 129 teams. - AP College Football
