Dyami Brown is the Tennessee Titans selection in Round 2.

The trend: It’s hard to imagine a trend that has a longer history than Jon Robinson’s love of the SEC at the top of the draft, but there is one rule above all rules with Robinson. That is the Matias Wodner Rule and to this point, it has been infallible.

That rule is:

"For those unfamiliar, the Matias Wodner rule is that every receiver Jon Robinson spends a draft pick on MUST have two or more 1,000-yard seasons. Looking back from 2014-2019 there are only 39 players with 2+ 1,000 yard seasons, so just under 8 receivers per draft class. Robinson has drafted four of those receivers (Corey Davis, A.J. Brown, Tajae Sharpe, and Taywan Taylor) and those are the only receivers he has spent draft picks on. At this point, you can doubt whether it is mandatory for a college receiver to produce like that, but it is definitely a strong preference."

Dyami Brown is one of five wide receivers in this draft class that passes that filter. Almost as important as that, Brown played under the same OC who was the OC at Ole Miss when the Titans drafted A.J. Brown. That means that they have already seen that this scheme produces receivers whose production isn’t inflated by a gimmicky system.

Analysis: The Tennessee Titans need a receiver and it is going to be very hard for Robinson to not make a move up for Brown given how much he fits what the Titans like in a prospect. The three receivers that the Titans are most likely to draft this year are DeVonta Smith, Elijah Moore, and Dyami Brown.

The latter’s ability to threaten defenses deep is going to be something that the Titans covet on top of his consistency and production at the college level.
