Cowboys Draft Target: Reggie Brown

One wide receiver prospect quickly moving up the draft boards of many teams is Georgia's Reggie Brown. <BR><BR> The Dallas Cowboys have already shown interest in this speedster, including scouting him at UGA's Pro Day just last week. <b>We've also included photos from Brown's workout, in this extensive report.</b><BR>

Reggie Brown (6-1.5, 195) may not be a name that many fans were familiar with in recent months, but after a strong showing at Georgia's Pro Day last week, the future NFL wide receiver is starting to make a name for himself.

Brown finished his senior year at Georgia by catching 53 passes for 840 yards (15.9/avg) and six touchdowns. The Associated Press and the SEC coaches also named him to their All-SEC first teams. As a junior, he caught 49 passes for 662 yards and three scores.

"He's an athletic receiver that's displayed a steady line of progress the past two years," notes one NFL scout.

"He's a strong pass catcher that easily gets off jams at the line of scrimmage, then fearlessly lays out to make the difficult catch in a crowd. He can take the big hit yet holds onto the pass. He also does a good job extending to catch the ball away from his body, and he's quick in all aspects of his game."

Reggie Brown's Pro Day Info: 6-1 ½; 195 lbs; Arms 32 inches; Hands 9 ¼ inches; 13 bench reps (5 not counted by scouts in attendance for not keeping butt to the bench mat or DNQ); 4.37 40-yard; DNP Broad Jump; DNP Vertical.
Brown has enjoyed tremendous success during his collegiate career. In fact, he was part of team that posted 42-10 record from 2001-04. And like his team, he also consistently improved his numbers every single season.

Brown went from six catches as a freshman, to 23 as a sophomore, to 49 as a junior, and finally to 53 as a senior.

That same consistency has been demonstrated by Brown in his offseason workouts.

At the NFL Combine, Brown ran a 4.48, but at his Pro Day in Athens, Ga., he was clocked as fast as 4.38.

"This is a guy that has consistently improved his game," added the scout. "He's moving up draft boards and overtaking his highly regarded teammate Fred Gibson."

In terms of the upcoming draft, Brown is quickly positioning himself to be one of the top five receivers taken. And for the Cowboys, he should be available when Dallas goes on the clock with the No. 20 overall selection.

He could also be available later on if the Cowboys decide to trade down. However most mock drafts are now suggesting that he may not be available by the time the Cowboys select their second round pick.

"Teams around the league are really starting to like this guy," adds the scout. "He's coachable, and he's got the skills to succeed."
