Junior wide receiver A.J. Brown announced Tuesday his decision to forgo his final season of eligibility at Ole Miss and declare for the 2019 NFL draft.

The 6-foot-1, 225-pound wideout will wrap up a productive career with the Rebels; he accumulated 85 receptions, 1,320 yards, and six touchdowns in 2018, leading his team in each of those categories.

Brown was named to the All-SEC first team in 2017 and figures to be part of the 2018 squad as well.

The former four-star recruit is widely expected to be a first-round pick and stands a chance to be the first player selected at his position this coming April. Brown possesses ideal size and strength for a receiver prospect.
