Brown showed he has enough talent to make plays in the NFL with a 32-yard run for a touchdown and a 45-yard reception for a TD, helping Detroit beat the Atlanta Falcons in an exhibition game Saturday.|||||||
Two days after the game, coach Jim Schwartz was quick to put the breaks on the Brown-related hype. "Let's not put him in the Hall of Fame yet for what he did in the preseason," Schwartz said.

The Lions drafted Brown out of TCU in the sixth round.
