3. Amon-Ra St. Brown, Detroit Lions

The Lions found a star in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Amon-Ra St. Brown is a reception machine. He had more than double the number of catches of any other Lions player last season. St. Brown spends most of his time in the slot, where he regularly gets open and makes big play after big play.

In his first two seasons, St. Brown has made an incredible 196 catches for 2,073 yards and 11 touchdowns while also adding 156 rushing yards and a touchdown.

St. Brown is a go-to target for Jared Goff, and for good reason. He added 516 yards after the catch last season, ninth-most in the NFL. Of his 106 receptions, 61 were for first downs. It's hardly surprising that Goff kept throwing the ball his way.

In only two seasons, St. Brown has become one of the best slot receivers in the league.

He does it all. St. Brown gets open with ease, picks up yards after the catch, and moves the chains. He is a reliable target who Goff knows he can trust to make a play.

St. Brown made his first Pro Bowl last season. It could be the first of many.
