Vincent Brown improves forty time

San Diego State wide receiver Vincent Brown had a terrific Senior Bowl week, but his postseason momentum hit a speedbump at the combine when he ran the forty-yard dash around 4.7.

Brown improved that time drastically at his pro day on Thursday according to Adam Caplan of FoxSports.com, running between a 4.52 and 4.57.  Brown isn’t known as a burner, but he has good hands and excellent route running skills.

“Well, I play much faster than my 40-time says. I can be a deep threat and I have a pretty good feel for the game,” Brown said.

Brown fits the profile of what the Chargers usually look for in a receiver, and they  seemed to show special interest in him throughout the draft process.   He’s likely a mid-round prospect.
