LOOK: Antonio Brown tweets pre-draft scouting report after signing new deal

Antonio Brown, seven years ago, was a little-known player from a small school that hopping to impress the NFL Combine. After 632 receptions for 8,377 yards and 50 touchdowns, on Monday, one of the league’s best wide receivers signed a shiny new deal which worth nearly $73 million.

But Brown, who was the Steelers’ sixth-round pick in 2010 — and 23rd wideout selected that year — hasn’t forgotten the skeptics. Here’s what he tweeted shortly after signing his new deal:

However, the Steelers’ sixth-round pick in 2010 and 23rd wide-out selected that year, has not forgotten about the skeptics yet.

There is a few things: just the latest evidence that the draft is as much art as science. While it is a cliché, a draft guide cannot even measure a player’s work ethic – and Brown himself won’t be outworked, according to everyone who comes into contact with him. As for the lack of “functional strength,” this Week 16 touchdown will be serving against the Raves that helped the Steelers to the AFC North title.

To be fair: Brown actually was a late-round pick, and it had a lot to do to leave school a year early, which was his decision to did so. However, it is hard to defend the rest of the scouting report, since it has been disproven through Brown’s exploits on the field. Now, he is the league’s highest-paid pass-catcher.

Why @AntonioBrown is worth it: 2014-2015 are 2 of the 10 best WR seasons since 1988 by DYAR. Ranked “only” 7th in 2016. Also, he’s FUN.
