Keenan Brown arrived to Oklahoma State as a 205-pound wide receiver. He joined the Los Angeles Rams out of Texas State as a 250-pound tight end.
Unable to crack the wide receiver lineup at OSU, Brown switched to a fullback “Cowboy” role after his redshirt sophomore season. A move to TSU though helped him break out in a new way at tight end with more than 50 receptions and five receiving touchdowns along with two rushing touchdowns as their bulldozer back.
Clearly, there’s a baseline athleticism to work off of.
Will that be enough?
I suppose it depends on what position he’s looking at, but I’m not sure he has one on offense. If we’re taking him on as a tight end, he’d be fighting for a TE3 spot against Johnny Mundt and Kendall Blanton.
I think at this point though, it’s more honest to look at him as fighting for a special teams spot.
No, but given his frame he’s going to be impossible to ignore once we get to training camp.
Chances of making the final roster (1.5/10)
It’s a thin shot, but it’s a shot. If the coaching staff finds his offensive potential intriguing, that might be enough to get him to the practice squad. His only shot at the 53-man though is going to be on teams.
