Panthers 2021 Draft: One wide receiver target for every round
By Dean Jones
Dyami Brown – North Carolina
This would be a popular choice with Dyami Brown having played his college football at North Carolina. But the wide receiver is a tremendous talent that comes to the next level on the back of a career year with the Tar Heels.
Brown recorded his second straight 1,000-yard receiving season and a yards-per-reception average of more than 20 with some explosive plays that will be a significant benefit to any NFL team that selects him.
The Carolina Panthers need to find somebody who can be relied upon all over the field if Curtis Samuel departs. Although there are more immediate needs to address in the early rounds, pairing Brown with D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson is a mouth-watering proposition.
Tylan Wallace – Oklahoma State
Tylan Wallace might not be the biggest name entering the 2021 NFL Draft this year. But he’s put together four outstanding seasons at Oklahoma State and possesses a lot of transferable skills that are sure to serve him well in a professional environment.
His ability to win 50-50 balls despite his 5-foot-11 frame is extraordinary. Wallace plays with fierce determination and even though he wouldn’t be classed as someone with top-end speed, his ability to make big plays consistently is something that won’t go unnoticed by scouts during the assessment process.
Oklahoma State’s offense was fairly one-dimensional. So the prospect could just be scratching the surface in terms of what Wallace is actually capable of.
