For the sake of full disclosure, I had a hard time finding film. Most of what I was able to watch was highlights.
Justin did a good job finding opening in the zone. He also showed ability to post up defenders so he could catch the football.
When watching the tape, I kept expecting Southern Utah to line him up in the slot but I couldn’t find any plays where he was lined up there. Justin’s route running was pretty crisp and his hands look to be pretty consistent. He did a good job locating the ball across all routes. He didn’t turn his head until he had secured the ball in his hands. He ran across the field and wasn’t afraid of contact.
Justin Brown has good game speed. He was able to get behind defensive backs. I look forward to seeing what Justin’s 40 is. He will be at BYU’s proday on March 25th. According to an interview, Justin runs a 4.4 40. That will garner some attention at his pro day.
I think Justin is effective in the intermediate passing game. He could be a possession receiver that could potentially thrive in certain systems.
NFL Comparison: Chris Harper
I feel really good about this comparison. Both guys look similar. Same style of play. Same measurables. Justin has a little more speed and has more reliable hands. I think Justin finds his way to a roster spot.
