Let's be honest, Brown and Lamb are the two best wide receivers in the NFC East. There's also an argument for both to be at the top spot in this ranking.

Brown has been a superstar since he entered the league. The Tennessee Titans selected the Mississippi wideout in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft before trading him to the Eagles during the 2022 NFL Draft.

The move from Tennessee to Philadelphia helped Brown take his game to the next level. In his first season in Philadelphia, the 26-year-old wideout had a career-high 88 catches for 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Brown was a focal part of Philadelphia's offense last season and finished top-10 in targets (146), receiving yards, yards after the catch (543), and touchdowns. His 1,496 receiving yards ranked fourth in the NFL.

Brown is a two-time Pro Bowler and is widely regarded as one of the best wideouts in the NFL. He also made the All-Pro second team last season.
