Washington wide receiver Dyami Brown talks Fitzpatrick & other things

While Dyami Brown was Washington’s second third-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft and fourth overall choice, he may be the player fans are most excited about next season.

Brown recently joined Brian Mitchell and JP Finlay on 106.7 The Fan’s “BMitch and Finlay” and talked about several topics from his time at North Carolina to his current quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Last week was the first time Brown took the field with Washington’s veterans for the voluntary OTA sessions. Brown was so excited to be on the field he wore his pads all the to the practice field, which is not permitted in OTAs.

Head coach Ron Rivera had to tell Brown to remove his pads. But, in defense of Brown, he said he wasn’t the only member of the WFT to be on the field with pads.

Brown is certainly ready for his NFL career to begin and get to work with Fitzpatrick. In OTAs last week, Fitzpatrick connected with Brown on at least one deep throw, which impressed the rookie wideout.

“Oh man, that’s the guy right there,” Brown said with a laugh. “That’s the guy. I like him a lot. You know he’s composed; he likes to throw deep. I have seen him throw it deep a few times, and he has a great arm.”

Brown believes offensive coordinator Scott Turner’s offense is perfect for him:

Oh, I definitely think it works. You know, we do go deep sometimes, and that’s what I’ve been in for the last few years. I think it’s helpful because it allows us to move around and have different matchups.

The combination of Brown, Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel and Adam Humphries gives Washington a much-improved wide receiver corps in 2021. That, combined with the addition of Fitzpatrick, means the Football Team will likely be more aggressive through the air in 2021.

One of the more exciting parts of Brown’s game was his ability to make big plays. Not only does he have outstanding speed, but he wins on contested catches. That is something Rivera pointed out after Washington selected Brown.

Brown was asked about his ability to win in those scenarios.

“For me, it is see ball, get ball,” Brown said. “A 50/50 ball is never a 50/50 ball to me; it is 100% to me.”

There are plenty of reasons for Washington fans to be excited about Brown. And, if he is anything like the WFT’s last third-round receiver (McLaurin), the team could have one of the better wide receiver corps in the league.
