NFL Draft 2013 Seahawks sleepers: WR Justin Brown, Oklahoma

The "Seahawks Sleepers" series is a flurry of quick scouting reports on some players that I've identified as potential targets for Seattle. My goal with this series is to highlight a few players that John Schneider, Pete Carroll and their scouting team might be interested in, and to give a brief synopsis as to why. For the most part, I'm high on the guys that I'll be pointing out - and I'll be monitoring them during the Draft and in Rookie Free Agency. Also, for the most part, these are mid- to later-round prospects, because let's be honest, you're probably sick of reading about first- and second-round type guys.

Justin Brown - 6'3, 207; good sized, productive wide-reciever with a lot of experience fielding punts.

Transferred to Oklahoma after the Penn State debacle. Was productive at Penn State and was a consistent contributor at his new school. Brown stands 6'3, 207 pounds and at his Pro Day ran the 40 in 4.60 seconds. More importantly though, his 1.55 10-yard split and 6.96 3-cone time show elite burst and get off, and that's probably a big reason he was used extensively as a punt returner in college.

At Oklahoma his senior year, he averaged 13.6 yards per return and ran one back for a touchdown. That went with his 73 catches for 879 yards and 5 TDs.

Brown is projected to be a late-round to UDFA type prospect in the draft this year, but I could definitely see the Seahawks being interested.

Why Seattle?

The Seahawks have seemed to target former blue-chip recruits and recent transfers that have seen their stock fall in recent months or seasons. Brown fits that profile.
