A.J. Brown, who finished third in the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year category a year ago, said he feels like a different player heading into training camp compared to last year, when he spent a good part of the offseason getting ready for the NFL Draft.
Earlier this offseason, Brown said part of his plan includes catching 1,000 footballs a day.
"I am definitely in a better place (physically), and I'm in a better shape mentally as well," Brown said. "Last year I was flying and going places, and I never could really sit still and put in the work."
We've heard this from rookies before, how their second season training and not having to worry about the draft is a big deal for progress. The story said Brown felt tired in the fourth quarter and is working to fix that and feels overall he's in better shape. We think he's a nice, fourth-round value in fantasy drafts.
