Brown (5-11, 184) is a second-year wide receiver out of San Diego State University. The Chargers selected him in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
The Chargers stayed close to home with their first of two picks in the third round in the 2011 NFL Draft, grabbing Vincent Brown from San Diego State. He was the 14th former Aztec drafted by the Chargers and the first since quarterback Jesse Freitas in 1974. Brown was the third all-time leading receiver in school history with 209 catches and 3,110 yards, and he was a two-time All-Mountain West Conference selection.
The Chargers had high hopes for Brown’s rookie season, but the NFL lockout and a training camp hamstring strain combined to stall the rookie’s progress. Brown worked through those issues and he began to contribute during the second half of the season with several catches that made highlight reels across the nation. He made his first start against the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers and a week later caught his first touchdown pass against the Oakland Raiders. Brown appeared to catch a second touchdown against the Raiders, but instant replay overturned the call despite video evidence that proved to the contrary. Brown later added a second touchdown in another nationally-televised game in Jacksonville and he finished the year with 19 catches for 329 yards and an impressive 17.3-yard average.
Nicknamed V.J., Brown enjoys listening to music and playing drums. He learned to play when he was six years old.
This spring, Brown finished his coursework at San Diego State and earned his degree in philosophy. He participated in the school’s graduation ceremonies in May.
The Chargers stayed close to home with their first of two picks in the third round, grabbing San Diego State’s Brown, the third all-time leading receiver in school history with 209 catches and 3,110 yards, and a two-time All-Mountain West Conference selection. Just the 12th 1,000-yard receiver in school history as a senior in 2010, Brown’s 1,342 yards were fourth-best on the school’s single-season charts. Brown, who ranked fifth in school history with 23 career touchdowns, helped the ’10 Aztecs to their first bowl win since 1969. Brown is the 14th Aztec drafted by the Chargers and the first since quarterback Jesse Freitas in 1974.
In his free time, Brown enjoys playing the drums.
