Equanimeous St. Brown, Notre Dame
Sure, recent history will tell you buyer beware when it comes to Notre Dame receivers. The Cardinals themselves unfortunately know this all too well.
Of course the past should not be factored into the decision making, but you can’t deny that the thought likely enters minds of many fans and NFL executives. That said, St. Brown is his own player and certainly worth taking a risk on.
St. Brown’s biggest asset is his size. At 6’5 he can certainly leap up and grab balls out of mid air. The Cardinals could use such a guy, especially after the retirement of Fitzgerald.
He had 92 catches for 1,484-yards and 13 touchdowns in his three seasons with the Fighting Irish. His time at Notre Dame though was not one of consistency.
Injury played a bit part in that during his freshman year. He had a very good sophomore season, by far the best of his three. He caught 58 passes for 961-yards and nine touchdowns.
The 2017 campaign though he had just 33 receptions for 515-yards and four touchdowns. That seemed to be a by-product of the team though, as Notre Dame had bouts of inconsistency.
