Dyami Brown - Commanders WR

When the Washington Commanders selected Dyami Brown at No. 82 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, this was seen as the physically imposing wide receiver missing from the passing game. After a sensational college career at North Carolina, most projections pre-draft thought he could carry this on at the next level.

Despite these lofty goals, Brown's been an afterthought over his first three seasons in Washington. With 62 targets - 29 of which he's brought in for 476 receiving yards and three touchdowns - there's just something missing where the wideout is concerned.

Even when Sam Howell became the Commanders' starting quarterback, Brown couldn't become more influential. This was the most damning indictment of all when one considers how this partnership flourished with the Tar Heels in college.

Brown wasn't the only pass-catcher who struggled under Eric Bieniemy last season. But looking at how things unfolded for the player before that, it might have been his last chance to carve out a prominent role for himself.

The Commanders will be busy on the recruitment front this offseason. They need better options at the skill positions - especially if they take a quarterback at No. 2 overall. This makes Brown a potential cut candidate depending on how many wideouts Washington manages to acquire.
