Making final preparations ahead of the NFL Draft, franchises continue to evaluate players while composing a draft board. For those looking for an explosive receiver, there’s good news on the horizon. On Thursday afternoon, Marquise Brown was cleared to run for the first time since undergoing lisfranc foot surgery.

Known as a speedster with the ability to separate himself from defenders, Brown initially received a first round projection. Playing injured throughout the latter half of the collegiate season with the Oklahoma Sooners, the surgery forced the receiver to miss not only the NFL Combine but also Pro Day in Norman. As one of the fastest prospects in the draft, Brown’s stock should rebound provided the wideout shows no signs of slowing down.
In his final year at the collegiate ranks, Brown racked up 1,138 yards from scrimmage on 75 catches. Crossing the goal line ten times, the junior provided a spark each and every time on the field. With the right pedigree, this kid remains an interesting NFL hopeful. We’ll find out where Brown lands toward the end of April!
