2. Kadarius Toney (Florida)
Kadarius Toney might just be the best receiver in this draft class when it comes to picking up yards after the catch. When Toney touches the ball he always has a chance to score. His speed and elusiveness work majority to his advantage. He’s the kind of player that can take a short slant pass to the house.
Toney has a chance to be drafted in the first round, but it’s such a crowd among the top of this group that he’s looking more like a day two pick.
When it boils down to it Toney and Wallace are very similar players, so this one is a dealer’s choice. Like Wallace, Toney is six feet tall and just under 200 pounds. Toney’s numbers tell an interesting story though, as he only has one awesome season of production. In 2020, Toney had 70 catches for 984 yards and 10 touchdowns. In the three previous seasons, he hadn’t scored more than one touchdown.
What is different about Toney is that he’s impossible to catch but it’s not because of moves and shake and bake. Once he catches the football he’s like a North and South running back who wastes no time getting up the field.
3. Dyami Brown (UNC)
There are two interesting wide receiver prospects from North Carolina. Dazz Newsome is one, but the one the Ravens should have their eyes on is Dyami Brown. Production is the best case Brown has during the draft process.
He’s had two seasons in a row with 50 catches and 1,000 yards for the Tar Heels. In those two seasons, Brown has scored 20 touchdowns. After a quiet freshman year, Brown exploded onto the scene in College Football.
Brown is a legitimate deep threat that can create serious separation. Brown is a player who can take the top off the defense and getting him in the third round wouldn’t be a crazy idea.
An offense with Marquise Brown, Dyami Brown, Sammy Watkins, and Devin Duvernay would create a group of speedsters that would be hard to keep up with. It would be like having a Justice League comprised of four different versions of The Flash.
