That sucks for us.

definitely sucks for us, but i suspect it's going to suck for him as well, especially in the long run.

I'm conflicted about this, but overall not upset. Good for him to go and get paid and hopefully be successful in the next level. Sucks we won't have him next year, but it's been way too long since we've had anyone get drafted, this could be great for recruiting. Especially if he gets some playing time as a rookie.

I'm guessing you are saying that because he could have really put up some numbers next year, correct?

Thus improving his stock, and signing a better rookie contract?

yup. this is an incredibly deep tight end class, and i'm guessing he doesn't get picked until day 3 if at all. in a league that values measurables above all else, he's not going to show well vs his peers at the combine, if invited. he barely got on the radar this year, so parlay that into some pre-season buzz, be the big beneficiary as the best receiver in a pass-first offense, and go from there.

can't fault a kid for looking to get paid though, especially w/ a new coach and the uncertainty that goes along w/ that.

I agree with drum here. Sucks but I'm happy for him. His next season is a total unknown. He was only with us for 1 season but it's nice to see a Bobcat get the accolades he's received. WVU's best TE (a Senior TE on a very good team) had 352 yards and 1 TD. Brown (on a very bad team) had 577 yards, lead the team in receiving yards, and had 5 TDs. I honestly can't say he'd have an improvement next year. I'd look for our receivers getting a big bump next year, but not Brown.

I don't really follow draft boards that much, but all I have heard is that this is a weak TE class. Why do you say it is a deep class?

yeah, on the one draft board I read (Walter Football), they are talking about this being one of the weaker TE classes.

Granted, I haven't looked at others, but I always thought he's been pretty spot on.

ehhh...don't forget that wvu has an incredible wr corps right now. 2 of the 3 will be playing on sunday next year, and the 3rd is damn good as well. no one in their right mind would prioritize the te w/ that stable of pass catchers. we would have had the exact opposite going into next year.

Luckily, the 2019 tight end class is among the best in recent memory.: https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/dallas ... fit-safety
https://www.drafttek.com/2019-NFL-Draft ... -Draft.asp
walter has 19 te profiles, and doesn't include brown: http://walterfootball.com/draft2019TE.php
that should give you an idea how deep it is. for reference, 2017 and2018 both had 14 te drafted.

I like the guy in the comments that thinks he will go 1st or 2nd round. I agree that he will go late if at all. Best of luck to him. He was fun to watch and has a great size and skill set.

Haha! I don't think so based on his profile.

He needs to go make that money if he can. Way too much risk (injury mostly) to stick around, especially since he probably wouldn't improve his draft status much.

If Texas State is going to make the jump to the next level, we got to start putting more players in the league.

Rooting for him big-time!!!

This was my thought too, and I can’t blame the guy for wanting to get paid.
So I’m an idiot when comes to declaring for the NFL draft... if nothing comes his way can he come back and play for us next year? Or does he get ruled out of eligibility?
