Brown is one of the few players who could read blocking very well as well as rush the ball when the need arises. Although he is argued to lack in physicality and size, his acceleration is mind-blowing. This has earned him quite a long list of awards and recognition some of which include Pro Bowl, First-team All-Pro and the NFL receiving yards leader.
