USC has had quite the roller coaster over the past two decades. From starting out in the early 2000’s as a juggernaut all the way through the down days after Pete Carroll jumped to the NFL, we haven’t seen the Trojans in a better spot then they are now in years. A lot of that has to do with the emergence of offensive coordinator Graham Harrell and the implementation of the air raid offense. Amon-Ra St. Brown has played well in the offense over the last two seasons, amassing 118 receptions for over 1,500 yards and 9 touchdowns. The younger brother of Packers receiver Equanimious St. Brown, Amon-Ra has carved out a nice career as a Trojan.

Amon-Ra St. Brown
Weight: 195 lbs
Strengths: A member of the all chirp team, Amon-Ra is a scrappy player. Goes after defensive backs with physicality and attitude. Is a crisp mover in the open field. Shows the capability to track the ball in the air. Has solid body control in contested catches. Utilizes his quick feet to maximize his strong releases. Displays strong hands in catching the football and does a good job catching the ball away from his body. Has a knack to find the open hole in the zone.
Weaknesses: While route running is crisp, St. Brown does not do a great job of separating. Too many unnecessary contested catches. Doesn’t drop his hips consistently in and out of breaks. Isn’t the most physical receiver at the catch point and has alligator arms at times.
|Grade||69.5/100 Fifth Rounder|
Amon-Ra St. Brown is overall a good receiver with skills that translate to the next level, but there are a lot of questions I have about his potential at the NFL level. Having trouble separating against the PAC-12 does not bode well for that skill improving at the next level. I believe he will go on day two but I personally wouldn’t touch him until day 3.
