Chargers to meet with Notre Dame WR St. Brown prior to NFL Draft

Could the Chargers add to an already crowded wide receiver room?

NCAA Football: Notre Dame at Miami Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Brooke Cersosimo of NFL Media recently sat down with former Notre Dame wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown where he announced the Los Angeles Chargers as one of three scheduled visits between now and the start of the draft.

St. Brown was a highly-touted prospect following the 2016 season but found his stock take a hit after his final season was plagued with inconsistent and questionable quarterback play. In 2017, he only collected 33 catches for 515 yards and four touchdowns after breaking out with a 58-961-9 stat line the previous year.

With a 6-foot-5, 214-pound frame, it’s easy to see why teams would initially fall for the wideout. At the combine, St. Brown clocked in a very respectable 4.48-second forty-yard dash and put up 20 reps on the bench press.

If his measurables weren’t interesting enough, his backstory should definitely draw your attention. St. Brown’s father is a two-time Mr. Universe and three-time Mr. World as a former weightlifter. He even spent some of his adolescence living in France and attended a French school while living in California.

NFL Analyst Lance Zierlein has St. Brown projected as a third or fourth round draft pick which would be awfully rich if the Chargers chose to spend this high of a pick on another receiver.
