Houston Texans Draft: 5 potential targets at No. 67 overall
By Brian Emory
No. 2: Dyami Brown, WR, UNC
After losing Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins in consecutive offseasons, the Houston Texans’ wide receiver room needs an infusion of young talent. Brandin Cooks performed admirably last year, but aside from him this wide receiver room doesn’t exactly have a surplus of reliable options. Randall Cobb just turned 30, and while Keke Coutee shows some flashes he’s yet to establish himself as anything more than a third or fourth option for the Houston Texans.
Similar to McNeil, North Carolina’s Dyami Brown has done himself a lot of favors throughout this draft process. Brown is a dynamic talent at the receiver position that has big play ability. His speed won’t blow you away, but he has a slippery release which allows him to beat his opposition off the snap.
You also can’t deny the ACC production. Over his final two seasons in Chapel Hill, Brown amassed over 2,000 receiving yards paired with 20 scores. He also averaged over 20 yards per reception. There’s a ton to like in Brown as a day two receiver.
