NFL Future Watch: Amon-Ra St. Brown Football Cards, Detroit Lions – Amon-Ra St. Brown was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. He’s a classic later-round selection that has a chip on his shoulder to prove the world, and especially the teams with no interest in him, wrong. So far, this rookie wide receiver is exceeding his draft standing and reaching his potential.
St. Brown attended Servite High School in Anaheim, California. As a senior, he caught 72 passes for 1,320 yards and 20 touchdowns. As a top recruit, he committed to the University of Southern California.
In his freshman season, this talented wide receiver caught 60 passes for 750 yards and three touchdowns.
In 2019, his sophomore season, St. Brown caught 77 passes for 1,042 yards and six touchdowns. He added 60 yards on the ground with one touchdown, as well.
In 2020, the pandemic limited the team and St. Brown to just six games. As the team’s captain, he caught 478 yards on 41 catches with seven touchdowns. St. Brown also worked on punt and kick returns as well. He was voted to the 2020 All-Pac 12 first team.
He decided to forego his senior season to enter the NFL Draft. Heading into the NFL Combine, St. Brown was trying to up his draft status. He ran 4.51 in the 40-yard dash with a 38.5 vertical jump and 20 reps on the weight bench. Even with a good showing he still slipped in the draft.
Starting in Week 13 against the Vikings, St. Brown caught 10 balls for 86 yards and a touchdown. By Week 17 against the Seahawks, he had 134 total yards with a touchdown on the ground and in the air. Headed into the final week of the season, St. Brown had 82 catches for 803 yards and four touchdowns.
One card to get is his 2021 Panini Prestige autographed rookie. St. Brown is pictured in his USC uniform, and he’s carrying the ball, ready to gain some big yardage.
His 2021 Donruss Rated Rookie shows him in his Detroit Lions gear. With a look of determination on his face, he is once again going for a gain. St. Brown’s speed is great, and he’s a player that can get good yardage after the catch.
Another fun card is his 2021 Panini Absolute Football Rookie. Pictured with the ball, he’s clutching it with both hands. His hands are terrific, and that means he will be a top receiver for the Lions for many years to come.
