Okay, so AJ Brown is just freaking sick....

They're completely different body types.  It's a terrible comparison.  

 

It's actually a pretty good comparison. If you watch the way that Brown and Mason both move right after they catch the ball, it's VERY similar. Mason had that same ability to just sense where the tackle was coming and make a move to avoid it. This often meant backing up for just a second while the guy dove past him. Brown did that same thing in college. I remember thinking it reminded me of DMase a LOT. Obviously, they have different bodies, but their route running and the way they get YAC is very similar.

It's actually not a good comparison unless you really stretch it but okay.  You do you.

Our top three receivers all have different skill sets that seem to complement each other really well: a big athletic long striding number one, a slightly shorter but more muscular guy who's good for yac but still has enough short space quickness to get open, and a small slot guy with great short space quickness.

If AJ Brown really is as good as I think he is, I'm very excited about our receiving corps. Davis, Brown, Humphries, Walker back. Went from bad to pretty good in just a year.

Pretty good?  That's a stellar unit.

Brown is still a rookie though and he's your 2. And CD is very good but I wouldn't say he's some top 10 WR right now. And as much as I love Delanie he's coming off a bad injury and he's 35, so he's going to be managed in terms of snaps. Don't get me wrong, it's still a good unit. But I wouldn't say we're the Chiefs, Eagles, or Texans in terms of receiving corps.

With Mahomes, Watson, or Wentz throwing the ball to our receivers, I'm sure that you'd feel differently.  We know that they are all good.  We just don't know how good.

In the end, does it really matter who AJ Brown reminds us of? Whether it's Mason or Boldin or Owens or whoever... if he turns out like any of those guys in terms of production or impact: cha-ching!

He has a really natural confidence about him. An authentic energy. There’s always been something off about the personalities and confidence in past Titans WR draft picks (including Corey Davis imo). Every time I see video of Brown he exudes a different energy from those guys.
