Dyami Brown - Commanders WR

Dyami Brown's got all the physical tools needed to become a productive NFL wide receiver. It hasn't come together as yet during his three seasons with the Washington Commanders, but he's getting another shot under the new regime when all hope seemed lost.

Brown's ability to stretch the field is something that could be an asset if he proves himself to a coaching staff with no emotional attachment to the player. Rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels' deep ball accuracy is renowned. This is something the former third-round selection can benefit from greatly if he forces his way into Kliff Kingsbury's plans.

There's been signs of life from Brown over early offseason workouts. He flashed moments of quality and seemed to be developing an encouraging rapport with Daniels. It's a good start, but what comes next is more important.

If Brown wants to gain his fair share of targets under Washington's improved coaching staff, he must show out when things get more intense at camp. The Commanders would be wise to get the North Carolina product plenty of targets during the preseason. This will give them a broader perception of what he might be capable of in a competitive environment.

The opportunity is there for Brown. Whether he can capitalize on this is another matter.

He's flattered to deceive so far. Even when his old college teammate Sam Howell became the Commanders' starting quarterback in 2023, it didn't result in anything other than a minimal role for Brown. That was deeply disappointing and left many fans wondering if those in power would cut their losses ahead of time.

Adam Peters must see something in the wideout to warrant another look. The Commanders didn't do much to strengthen their wideout room this offseason - bringing in Luke McCaffrey and Olamide Zaccheaus. This indicates a role could be in the offing for Brown if he raises performance levels during the preparation period.

If not, the Commanders and Brown will go their separate ways.
