In the Arizona Cardinals OTA and mini-camp there has been several players that were making a name for themselves and shinning over everyone else, but one name that has been in everyone’s mouth when asked “who is the best stand out in practice” by far that player has been third round draft pick out of Pittsburgh State wide receiver John Brown.
Granted the practices were conducted without pads and in shorts which Head Coach Bruce Arians has publicly reiterated, and is really anxious to see many players in full contact in the up coming training camp.
But for now Brown has been the buzz around the facility from coaches to his peers and the level of excitement is going through the roof of the potential this kid has.
As it has been well noted that Brown has had some very hard times while perusing his football career, mainly dealing with the loss of his brother in a shooting outside of a night club. Brown was very close to his brother and it shows in his passionate play on the field.
There is something driving this kid to be great, as a rookie he has already picked up some of the language of the complex offense and his route running was better than projected at the combine.
Passion for the game of football and playing every down for his brother is powering this kids engine, and when one has a passion lead by something this strong he can only do great things and its near impossible for him to fail.
Look for Brown to make an immediate impact to the team this year, with his 4.3 speed he will draw coverages, and score seven or more touchdowns of the deep variety. Based on his mini-camp and OTA this season look for him to shine even more in training camp and have an electric pre-season, along with a 50 plus catch regular season.
