Who is the 6-foot-5-inch 215 pound Equanimeous St Brown?
St. Brown the son of John Brown, the former two-time Mr. Universe and three-time Mr. World weight-lifter, is a local kid from Anaheim, where he played at Servite High School. His interesting name that means “to stay calm and cool under pressure”, is exactly how he played his collegiate career. When current Green Packer Deshone Kizer was the starting quarterback at Norte Dame in 2016, St. Brown had a great year. St. Brown ended up that season to lead the Irish with 58 receptions for 961 yards, and nine touchdowns. The 2017 season didn’t work that well for him as Kizer declared, and the quarterback talent declined. His tall frame and speed can make him a dangerous receiver at the next level. He has two other brothers that also are collegiate receivers Osiris St. Brown Stanford University, and Amon-Ra St. Brown who will be playing the University of Southern Cal.
Equanimeous St. Brown Highlights
Has the ability to play outside as a deep threat and huge target. Even more dangerous in the slot with good speed for his height. Polished route runner with deceptive speed whether taking the top off the defense or on comeback routes. Huge target allowing to shield off defenders on 50/50 balls. Ability to take short crossing routes for big gains. Not afraid of crossing the middle and taking bit hits. Ability to maneuver away from big hits and maintain concentration on catching the ball. Has great footwork, that allows him to deceive the defender when running his routes.
Tends to struggle with physical cornerbacks. Needs to use hands more to catch the ball instead of allowing to hit the body. Need to use his body more downfield to shield off the defender. Question on hand strength if he's able to catch ball despite being chopped at by defender.
Is he a fit for the Rams?
Yes, since the departure of Sammy Watkins and Rams sticking with Tavon Austin another year, St. Brown can be a huge weapon for Sean McVay's offense. With his large frame, he already poises as a red zone target and mismatch with his speed. Having the height of St. Brown and Josh Reynolds on the field together on the outside will raise high concerns of the defensive secondary, primarily the safeties. Running lanes are now open as well as St. Brown working underneath as linebackers are concerned with the running game of Todd Gurley. If he should drop to the third or fourth round which is unlikely, the Rams will get another steal in the draft as they did with Cooper Kupp and Reynolds.
