No. 2 Brian Brown

Obviously, a lot of Richmond’s success will hinge on how Lauletta does running the offense. However, he does have some phenomenal weapons to throw the football to. Junior Brian Brown is as versatile a wideout as you will see. Brown was Richmond’s second leading receiver as he caught 79 passes for 1,089 yards and four touchdowns. The Richmond native is a guy that can be a possession receiver and just camp out over the middle.

On the other hand, Brown also is a deep threat that has no problem getting behind the defense downfield. Brown has extremely good hands and can make catches with little room to breathe from opposing defensive backs. If all that weren’t enough, he’s a quick player that also can return kicks if the Spiders choose to use him in that capacity. This is one of those players that the Terps will need to account for on every play. Brown was a preseason All-CAA First Team selection and for good reason.
