21 year old Dyami Brown was drafted in the 3rd round primarily as a deep shot field stretching wide receiver. Shortly after being drafted, the first conversation he had with a team mate was to discuss those deep connections with the franchises new quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. But it’s already starting to look like Dyami Brown might offer a lot more than that…
Brown ran a 4.46 40 yard dash time at his pro day at the University of North Carolina, and is impressing head coach with his game speed. Ron Rivera said at a media day a couple of days ago that Browns top line speed causes defensive backs to be cautious of him and therefore play a little looser against him, which then makes it easier for Brown to make plays on slant and dart routes. Here’s a clip:
His route running looks incredibly crisp and his ability to get a step on the DB in front of him has been shown in multiple clips on different types of releases coming out of training camp. One particular fan said that Brown looks like a ‘4th year vet’ in a tweet live from the offence vs defence at Washingtons home stadium.
If the 6 foot receiver, who looks to be dominating the pre season, can put all of this together on Sundays, then the Football Team have themselves a very legitimate receiving core heading into the season.
There’s a feeling about Brown similar to that of Terry McLaurin when he first arrived at Washington camp out of Ohio State. Mclaurin was drafted in the third round too, and these two may end up becoming the outside partnership for multiple years. With Curtis Samuel joining the roster from free agency, although currently recovering from an injury, there’s a real excitement around this offence.
Keep an eye on Dyami Brown, and if you’re drafting in a dynasty league this year, absolutely add him to your roster… (I have).
