Jason Brownlee Catching on for Gang Green as Undrafted Free Agent


Recommended Posts

For those Jets fans unfamiliar with undrafted free agent wide receiver Jason Brownlee, it might be time for you to get to know the Missouri product.

We first took notice of Brownlee back in January before listing him among five sleepers the Jets should be keeping a close eye on come combine time.

At Missouri, Brownlee stood out by continually making one play after another.  Whether it was a one-handed grab falling out of bounds and keeping his fee in bounds, taking a  short pass the distance and outrunning an entire secondary as he did against Louisiana, or by simply showing incredibly strong hands by pulling the ball down in the middle of multiple defenders.

Watch a few @SouthernMissFB games and you're bound to see WR Jason Brownlee make at least one highlight reel grab. Big play receiver who posted 16 TD's over past two seasons while averaging 15.9 YPC over the course of his college career. pic.twitter.com/LjxZ11rNwj

Brownlee then put himself on the map in OTA’s when quarterback Aaron Rodgers named him as a receiver who has stood out early on.

Now in the opening week of training camp, we’re seeing the 6′ 2” Browlee continue making a name for himself.  Day after day we hear about a Brownlee highlight, including what was reportedly the catch of the day on a Zach Wilson deep ball on which the wideout made a leaping grab over Bradin Echols that saw him rip the ball away from the third-year corner.

One day after another, Brownlee continues to make one play after another.  With Denzel Mims out of the picture, it’s a name you may not know now that you’ll want to start taking note of for the future.

He is very likely going to make the team or at least he PS and is probably why Mims was so easily expendable.  He received a $30K bonus and a guaranteed salary of $216K which is a LOT for an UDFA.  So someone in the building really likes him.

Boyle got 75k - so that seems like a big vote of confidence.

I like what he brings.  I hope he makes it.

That is a good write up. 
 
His RAS is not attractive. You look at his size and think he needs to add 10-15lbs, then you look at his speed and think, maybe not. The speed and agility are poor, but he looks like he can move in his highlights. Being able to make contested catches consistently is a fantastic trait, though. Coming in as a UDFA and ripping the ball from a third year CB is pretty cool, and reading that article suggests that that’s his m.o. That he’s so confident with contested balls that he’s lazy getting separation because he doesn’t feel the need. If he just tests poorly but has decent football speed, he could be a solid possession type receiver.
