North Carolina wide receiver Dyami Brown was among the many dynamic playmakers featured in the Tar Heel offense over the last two seasons. In 2019 and 2020, Brown had 1,000 receiving yards in each season while collecting 20 receiving touchdowns and averaging more than 20 yards per reception. Brown is a terrific athlete and vertical route-runner that excels at getting deep where his burst to the football and ball skills led to big plays down the field. Because he’s such a good vertical receiver, it opens up a world of possibilities for him to snap off routes and get open in the intermediate areas of the field. Brown is an elite competitor who battles as a ball carrier, gives great effort as a blocker, and is fearless working the middle of the field. When it comes to growth areas for Brown, developing his ability to clear press coverage and adding more functional strength are the most notable. In addition, he ran a simple route tree in college, so expanding his route tree will be necessary at the next level. Brown has the potential to become a solid No. 2/3 receiver at the next level for an offense that likes to air it out. 

Ideal Role: Top-three receiver that plays both from the slot and out wide.

Scheme Fit: Air Coryell.
