USC football fans were not surprised when NFL Trojan WR Amon-Ra St. Brown took the NFL by storm. He's the same guy who once had 1,000 yards in a season on 77 catches along with six touchdowns as the NUMBER THREE receiver for SC.
After then shining with an insane 41 catch, 478 yard, seven touchdown season in the shortened six-game 2020 year in his first crack at being a No. 1, St. Brown was destined for greatness at the next level. That being said, he likely surprised even the most diehard SC fans out there with this godlike feat that Field Yates found and posted on Twitter:
This isn't a stat among rookies. This is a statistic that pertains to ALL NFL wide receivers. No other receiver with zero drops had more catches than St. Brown. Every USC fan knew that St. Brown would develop some of the best hands of any receiver in the NFL, but not every USC fan expected him to enter the league from the jump with ALREADY some of the best hands in the game.
Amon-Ra St. Brown has turned into one of the most sure-handed receivers in the NFL after his USC football career.
Amon-Ra St. Brown has been a standout at every level, even before he was with USC football. He was elite at Mater Dei, he was elite despite playing in horrible offensive systems at USC, and now he's already established two of the surest hands in the game at the NFL level.
As a rookie in a terrible situation that he walked into with Detroit last year, he put up 912 yards on 90 catches in 2021. Those 912 yards went for the most yards out of any rookie in Detroit Lions history. He also passed Calvin Johnson's franchise record of catching eight or more passes in consecutive games, hitting six straight contests in 2021.
St. Brown will continue to build off of what he did in his rookie year in the NFL. It's what he did at USC. He got better every single year, and he outperformed his fourth-round draft selection by a landslide this year. The Lions were geniuses to take him that late once they had the chance, and he's already proved how wrong the rest of the league was about him.
