20. Vincent Brown
A one-time draftnik favorite, Brown entered 2013 as a certifiable sleeper. He exits it as a certified bust, having caught just 41 passes for a team that lost its No. 1 and No. 2 receivers. Leapfrogged by Keenan Allen and out-produced by Eddie Royal, Brown’s promise appears to have gone down with the fractured ankle that cost him all of 2012. He’s a tight end stuck in a 5-foot-11, 184-pound body.
That last line is painful. A tight end stuck in a 5-foot-11, 184 pound body! OUCH! It sounds about right though. That is the struggle with Vincent Brown on this offense. He didn’t have a lot of burst in the first place and the injury to his ankle might have taken away his ability to create any separation at all.
Philip Rivers will not throw the ball if you can’t get open. What are the expectations for Vincent Brown for next season?
