Wide Receiver Noah Brown has been with the Dallas Cowboys since 2017, but only this year has he been getting the recognition he deserves. This is mainly due to Noah being a backup receiver for most of his career. Now that Noah is getting a chance at what he does best, it's a great time to look into his past and discover new things about the Cowboy.
Noah was born on January 6th, 1996. He was born in a town called Flanders New Jersey. He would then go on to join Pope John Regional Highschool located in Sparta NJ. After missing his sophomore year due to breaking his ribs, he then looked forward to his junior year where he would record 41 receptions for 630 yards and six touchdowns.
Going into his senior year, he would have 41 receptions again but this time for 857 yards and 21 total touchdowns. After joining Ohio State, He managed to do very well overall.
While at Ohio State, Brown played in all 14 games during 2014 including the National Championship game against Orgon, which Ohio State ended up winning. In 2015, Noah was all set up to be the starting wide receiver, until during spring training he suffered a foot injury that would make him a red shirt for the whole season.
When 2016 rolled around, Noah was finally ready to get things going again. He played in every game including a game against Oklahoma where he tied a school record of four receiving touchdowns in a single game. After a very good season, Brown thought he had everything he needed to go into the 2017 NFL Draft, aborting his 2 extra years of college.
This was perhaps a bad decision by Brown because Noah had to wait until the 7th round to hear his name. He was selected 239th overall by the Dallas Cowboys. One stat that many people probably don't know is that the Cowboys were never going to even choose Brown until Running back Ezekiel Elliott requested for them to draft him.
That's right, one of the only reasons Brown was selected was because of his teammate throwing in a good word for him. While in his rookie year he didn't play much, the Cowboys still threw Brown out on the field during special team plays and quick run plays to block.
Fast forward to 2022, Brown was still not getting many receptions or yards each year. This would soon change in 2022 when the Cowboys would have a wide receiver famine. After trading Amari Cooper and having Gallup still on IR, it was finally time for Noah to shine.
During this season, Brown already has 25 receptions for 339 yards. These stats are already a huge step up from his previous seasons. He also got his first NFL touchdown this season too! Noah has come a long way and it's a good thing he is on the Cowboys this year.
I'm sure as the year goes on he will record much more stats that will bump his career up even more.
