Super Sleeper Alert: Marlon Brown

What a story this guy has.

Once a top recruit out of Memphis, and the winner of Tennessee’s Mr. Football Award in 2008, Marlon Brown had a very injury plagued and inconsistent career at Georgia.

He flew off of teams draft boards due to a torn ACL last November, but the defending Super Bowl champs took a chance and may have struck gold after signing the former Bulldog as an undrafted free agent.

He’s a physical specimen at 6’4 and fits the mold as an outside receiver. As of today, the Baltimore Ravens have Jacoby Jones listed as their No. 2 receiver behind Torrey Smith, but let’s get real – Jacoby Jones is not a true receiver, he’s a return man. Enter Marlon Brown. He’s caught the attention of everyone leading the Ravens in receiving this pre-season, hauling in 10 catches for 169 yards and 2 TDs.

The Ravens need a true No. 2 and Marlon Brown fits the mold.

If you’re in a 14-team league or higher, he’s worth a bench spot.
