Player Bio
 
Dyami (pronounced dee-AH-mee) Brown made an impact for the Tar Heels as a true freshman, starting six of 10 contests played (17 receptions, 173 yards, 10.2 average, one touchdown) after enrolling a semester early as a four-star recruit and all-state receiver at Charlotte's West Mecklenburg High School. His game stepped up another level with Sam Howell playing quarterback at UNC in 2019, as he garnered third-team All-ACC honors by ranking ninth in the country with 20.3 yards per reception (51 receptions, 1,034 yards) and tying the school record with 12 receiving touchdowns in 13 starts. Brown was dynamic in 2020, as well, earning third-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-ACC status by leading Carolina in receiving (55 receptions, 1,099 yards, 20.0 average, eight touchdowns) in 11 starts. He did not play in the team's bowl game. His brother, Khafre (pronounced CHA-free) is also a receiver at UNC. -- by Chad Reuter

Overview
Feast or famine deep-ball specialist with build-up speed that surprises cornerbacks who are tardy to open and run with him. Brown is a little thin, but has good length and excellent ball-tracking talent with the ability to follow the flight over his shoulder and bring it in for the score. He's a willing combatant when his quarterback allows him jump-ball opportunities. However, his lack of short-space foot quickness and agility allows coverage to hitch rides on his short and intermediate routes, which could limit his overall effectiveness as a pro. More importantly, he simply doesn't display trustworthy hands, which could cause quarterbacks and coordinators to lose faith if it's not corrected. Brown's talent to extend the defense has value, but he could have a limited ceiling as a scheme-dependent outside target.
Strengths
  • Took on the role of home-run threat for the Tar Heel offense.
  • Averaged 20-plus yards per catch over last 100 grabs.
  • Had eight touchdowns of 40-plus yards during career and scored every 5.3 catches since 2019.
  • Builds up and into vertical separation downfield.
  • Stem acceleration on posts created by subtle juke to loosen coverage.
  • Maintains positioning once cornerback is stacked.
  • Over-the-shoulder tracking talent with consistent focus.
  • Creates decent leverage for landing areas on deep balls.
  • Long body with long reach.
  • Battles for jump-ball positioning.
  • Shaved slants tighter.
  • Speed opens up comebacks and deep digs.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't have short-area agility to uncover.
  • Labored footwork in and out of breaks underneath.
  • Might need to work a limited set of routes.
  • Needs to create more vertical push off the snap.
  • Doesn't allow some routes to fully mature and manipulate coverage.
  • Several touchdowns scored off very basic double moves.
  • Below-average hand strength with disturbing drop rate.
  • Allows ball to beat him up.
  • Below-average strength to sustain blocks.

A couple of times tonight i think. At least once 

Just saw it.  So I’m not thrilled they have the camera facing directly at the draft board.  I don’t think you could read it but I’m not sure I love that.

In some of my mocks, I took Dyami - in the fourth.

Good value pick but man we are really skating on thin ice at TE. After Thomas we have literally squadoosh there. Maybe in round 4...

I am so excited about our draft, man. A few reach type picks I’ll admit but the schematic fits have been so good. We are selecting guys who are physical and productive with good traits left and right. This is a very solid draft strategy. 
 

So excited, man. Haven’t felt this way in a long time with this team.
