Round 2, pick 63, WR Dyami Brown
I expect the Chiefs to go wide receiver fairly early in this year’s draft and the second round seems to be the sweet spot for a lot of prospects. That’s why I have the Chiefs taking North Carolina wide receiver Dyami Brown at No. 63.
Brown offers a lot as a receiver and I’ve really fallen in love with him as a prospect after watching his film. First, his pass catching isn’t even the first thing you notice when watching his tape. It’s his blocking. I noticed Brown consistently create extra yards for the ball carrier, and he is willing to do the dirty work just like Sammy Watkins who the Chiefs lost in free agency. In addition, Brown has plenty of speed and a great release at the line of scrimmage which allows him to get open easily as well as his size.
Brown moves well for a 6’1″, 190 lbs receiver and he is also very physical—almost like a running back with the ball in his hands and willing to put his head down for extra yards. He will need to work on his route running and concentration lapses at the next level, but if he can improve in both of those areas, I see no reason as to why he can’t be a good No. 2 receiver who can play the X role in Kansas City’s offense.
Brown showed he can thrive in a downfield passing offense as he eclipsed 1,000 yards and averaged an absurd 20 yards per reception each of the last two seasons for North Carolina.
