You’ve got to love hype, right? I’ll be the first to admit that I was through the roof when we drafted the guy, he absolutely fits our offense perfectly. Unfortunately, we’ve yet to see a full season of Vincent Brown’s true potential. In 2011, he played in 14 games catching 19 of his 41 targets for 329 yards and 2 touchdowns. He missed all of 2012 with a broken foot. Nowadays, everyone is predicting him as a breakout player for 2013.
NFL.com says: Vincent Brown, WR, San Diego Chargers: Brown missed the entire 2012 season due to a broken left ankle, but he’s fully expected to be back in action in time for training camp. A great route runner who will no doubt be in the plans of new coach Mike McCoy, Brown will have a chance to pushMalcom Floyd for the right to start opposite Danario Alexander. The San Diego State product will be a solid target for owners in the late rounds, even after the addition of rookie Keenan Allen.
ESPN.com says: In the 2012 NFL campaign, Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, all of them wide receivers playing their third seasons, broke out in a big way. The temptation, therefore, to expect a similar step forward in 2013 from third-year wide receivers Torrey Smith, Cecil Shorts and Vincent Brown might be irresistible.
So Chargers fans, you know more about your team than these national sports writers. Would you take Vincent Brown in the first 8-10 rounds of your fantasy draft or do you still want to see more from the young man? What are your season prediction for him?
