Watch: Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown’s college highlights

Pride of Detroit

The Detroit Lions drafted Amon-Ra St. Brown with the 112th pick in the 2021 NFL draft and he will have a chance to compete for a starting role in the slot—in fact, he may already the front runner.

“He’s instinctive, he’s tough, he’s got grit, he’s savvy,” Lions general manager Brad Holmes said of St. Brown. “Usually I don’t try to put too much emphasis on blocking for a wide receiver, I just want to see if they’re tough enough and willing to do it, but he’s one of the most impressive blockers that I saw in this draft class. I just think in that phase of the game, the tenacity that he brings in that phase just says a lot about his intangibles and his football character. A guy that’s got savvy, knows how to run routes, has hands, and makes plays from inside and out, we’re really excited about him. He was a guy that actually we strongly considered yesterday (on Day 2 of the draft).”

Let’s take a closer look at what St. Brown will bring to the Lions this year by going back through his career highlights, starting with the video produced by the Lions’ media department.
