Chris Brown, who started 39 games at tight end/H-back for the Tennessee Vols, has joined the NFL's…
Recent Jaguars Signing a Convert to H-back?
Among Brown's physical attributes include impressive size and bulk, and very good hands with an ability to make spectacular catches. Brown has a lot of experience and is a solid blocker. As a senior at Tennessee, Brown caught 41 passes for 282 yards, and 6 touchdowns. For his career, Brown caught 92 passes for 736 yards, and 8 touchdowns, while playing in an impressive 50 games.
What kept Brown from being selected in the draft was his odd size, which makes him a ‘tweener. Brown is also a poor route runner who isn't nearly aggressive enough on the football field.
Can Brown make the Jaguars roster? Although there is competition at tight end, the team has no true H-back. Marcedes Lewis is the only player with a guaranteed roster spot, and his backup, George Wrighster has battled injuries throughout his career. Greg Estandia, Richard Angulo, and Isaac Smolko showed flashes last season, but none of the three would be considered by anyone as accomplished. Brown will have to compete with those players as well as fellow undrafted rookie Adam Bishop. Brown will have to likely make a special teams contribution to garner a real look at a roster position.
