Marquise Brown’s life changed the instant he was selected 25th overall in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.
The newest Baltimore Ravens wide receiver wasn’t about to let that moment pass him by. Brown, nicknamed “Hollywood,” was overcome with emotion while discussing his selection with NFL legend Deion Sanders.
“I’m just happy to be here,” he said as tears filled his eyes. “It means so much.”
The former Oklahoma Sooner wasn’t entirely unprepared for the intensity and excitement of the evening. His cousin, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown, gave Hollywood a simple piece of advice before the draft: “Just enjoy this moment.”
