Analyst's take: ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay on ESPN's draft show: "His ability to adjust and track the football is as good as anybody in this draft. He's a natural hands catcher."

Tim Twentyman's take: St. Brown can line up inside and outside, and was a 1,000-yard receiver in 2019. The Lions have a long-term need at receiver, and St. Brown is a refined route runner with terrific hands.

Mike O'Hara's take: Adding a versatile receiver with the ability to work in the slot opens the receiving game for everybody. St. Brown was productive in college, and playing for a school that's had a history of sending good to great receivers to the NFL is a positive entry on his resume.
