Washington Football Team Draft Grades: WR Dyami Brown
One of the goals for Washington entering the 2021 NFL Draft was to add some more speed to their roster. With their second pick in Round 3 of the draft, they selected Dyami Brown.
Brown is a speed threat receiver that averaged over 20 yards per catch during his final two seasons at North Carolina. He has a 6-foot-1, 189-pound frame and should add depth and competition to the Washington receiving corps.
The best thing about Brown is that he is a type of receiver that they don’t have. The Washington Football Team has some big receivers in Cam Sims, Kelvin Harmon, and Antonio Gandy-Golden. They also have some slot archetypes in Adam Humphries and Steven Sims. Then, there is Terry McLaurin, the great route runner with speed, and Curtis Samuel, a do-it-all, versatile weapon.
Brown is a pure speed threat. He will be able to stretch teams downfield and open up more space for McLaurin, Samuel, and Humphries to operate within. Ryan Fitzpatrick loves taking downfield chances, so having a player like this in the lineup will be important to match his playing style.
Brown could have been a late second-round pick and it wouldn’t have surprised many. Getting him in the middle of Round 3 is a good value. He adds another dimension to what is now a very deep-looking Washington receiving corps.
