Washington captains and 1st-round picks Jon Allen and Chase Young took this year's 1st-rounder, LB Jamin Davis, to dinner this evening at DC Prime.— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) May 1, 2021
Davis arrived in VA on Snyder's private jet, toured the facility, met w/ his coaches, then got time with his new teammates.
Ron Rivera just said that @WashingtonNFL first-round LB Jamin Davis was "about as natural of a fit as I've felt about a player in a long time."— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 1, 2021
What are the Washington Football Team getting in LB Jamin Davis?— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) April 30, 2021
-Understanding of run fits
My full breakdown of his game: https://t.co/SPxJQ7hTSb pic.twitter.com/bxOMLU5TqT
Ron Rivera sounds very happy to land Sam Cosmi: "Offensive tackle is such a hard position to find, especially guys who played well at that spot."— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) May 1, 2021
What I hate is his feet. Often drops back like he's a DB backpedalling rather than a LT kicksliding. pic.twitter.com/Ak36doJ7A8— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) May 1, 2021
Ron Rivera says Washington will put Sam Cosmi out at left tackle and see how he competes— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) May 1, 2021
Washington gets a solid cover corner in Ben St-Juste. He possesses size as well as athleticism and St-Juste looked like a top 45 pick off the 2019 film. https://t.co/yl5Cj1qV1a— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) May 1, 2021
I really know very little about of new DB Benjamin St-Juste, but at 6'3" 202 pounds, the dude ran a 3.96-4.00 Short Shuttle!!!— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) May 1, 2021
THAT IS INSANE!!!
Rivera said a team called them to trade up for No. 74, but Washington held off and picked St-Juste instead. The team immediately called back and said, "That was our guy," according to Rivera.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) May 1, 2021
Not the first time we've heard this just today. Build a culture. Build a family. https://t.co/4T1OfLU5Wu— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) May 1, 2021
Ron Rivera says that Benjamin St-Juste does indeed have the body & flexibility to play safety.— Chris Russell AKA The Rooster (@Russellmania621) May 1, 2021
Teams wanted to move up, Rivera says, for St-Juste.
May signal a shift to press man coverage (Jackson's strength too).— KyleSmith4GM (@Smith4Gm) May 1, 2021
Is a move to FS in the cards? Do you think that’s why we took him over more ‘classic’ CBS like Molden & Melifanwu??— Tim Maring PA-C (@Timmaring) May 1, 2021
DB Benjamin St-Juste said he will do whatever @WashingtonNFL needs him to do, whether that's corner, nickel or safety.— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 1, 2021
He noted that he played some safety at the Senior Bowl. He didn't train to be a safety, but some teams wanted to see him there.
Ron Rivera just added that St-Juste has a skillset and a body type to have position flex.— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 1, 2021
St-Juste played some free safety at the Senior Bowl after playing cornerback in college. https://t.co/tJBKwaBa6U
Benjamin St-Juste was drafted with pick 74 of round 3 in the 2021 draft class. He scored a 8.13 RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 336 out of 1790 CB from 1987 to 2021. https://t.co/9dc9mjGCBS #RAS #WFT pic.twitter.com/dkiSgDyu2y— Kent Lee Platte (@MathBomb) May 1, 2021
Initial takeaways on Washington drafting CB Benjamin St-Juste at No. 74. Is he CB4 or in the safety mix? https://t.co/21sInp6ZkU— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) May 1, 2021
The Athletic's Dane Brugler's assessment of @WashingtonNFL 3rd-rounder Dyami Brown:— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 1, 2021
"Brown isn’t as reliable (yet) as Stefon Diggs, but he has similar size, speed and fluid adjustment skills. He projects as a starting-level NFL receiver with the big-play ability to rack up TDs."
Not sure where Dyami Brown starts for Washington. Seems like an outside receiver. Maybe Curtis Samuel goes into slot?— Eat Sleep WFT (@WFTTalk) May 1, 2021
Dyami Brown called for the ball before the play vs future 1st RD CB A. J. Terrell— PFF Draft (@PFF_College) May 1, 2021
Daniel Jeremiah s pro comparison for Dyami Brown is Terry McLaurin. Poetic.— Washington Realm (@WashingtonRealm) May 1, 2021

Dyami Brown was one of the best deep threats in all of college football.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) May 1, 2021
Last year he had 12 catches of over 20 yards, an average depth of target of 18.7, and 3.11 yards per route run.
LOVE this pick and could be one of the steals of the draft pic.twitter.com/jWqDdUeldQ
"I thought he'd be an early second, maybe even a late one."— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) May 1, 2021
Mel Kiper on Dyami Brown.
Somehow, despite running a blazing 4.43 in the 40, he'll be the THIRD slowest WR in Washington. He, McLaurin and Samuel will be funnnnnnnnn
Washington's offensive playmakers entering 2021:— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 1, 2021
RBs: Antonio Gibson/J.D. McKissic
WRs: Terry McLaurin/Curtis Samuel/Adam Humphries/Dyami Brown/Antonio-Gandy-Golden/Cam Sims
TE: Logan Thomas
Ron Rivera really likes what WR Dyami Brown was able to do in contested catch situations:— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 1, 2021
"Man, when we competed for it, he went and got it."
If you had promised me yesterday morning that Dyami Brown would be available to me tonight at #82, I would have taken every other receiver off my board.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) May 1, 2021
Third-round WR Dyami Brown says "a whole lot of my game hasn't been shown over the past few years just because of how our offense was [at North Carolina]."— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 1, 2021
He believes he's an all-around WR, and he can't wait to showcase his skillset in Washington.
Dyami Brown was drafted with pick 82 of round 3 in the 2021 draft class. He scored a 8.38 RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 409 out of 2517 WR from 1987 to 2021. https://t.co/AIY0i92iTZ #RAS #WFT pic.twitter.com/UvE0jFrQJw— Kent Lee Platte (@MathBomb) May 1, 2021

There has never been a more perfect receiver for Ryan Fitzpatrick than Dyami Brown. BOMBS AWAY BABY.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) May 1, 2021
Ron Rivera says all three players they selected tonight are "the right character fit" for Washington and have positional flex.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) May 1, 2021
Martin Mayhew on why Washington skipped QB tonight. They set their board and stayed with it.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) May 1, 2021
We may not have the biggest WR corps in the NFL - but DAMN are we FAST— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) May 1, 2021
While Washington made its interest in Jamin Davis and Sam Cosmi obvious, sounds like it played coy with Benjamin St-Juste. Dyami Brown said he only spoke with WFT once pre-draft.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) May 1, 2021
One thing tonight tells me - Ron and Co. must REALLY like Sammis Reyes!— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) May 1, 2021
Washington Football Team killing it on my board.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) May 1, 2021
Jamin Davis - 19
Samuel Cosmi - 51
Immediate starters and high impact players in my opinion.
Washington is having an exceptional draft.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) May 1, 2021
Another great pick for Washington!— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) May 1, 2021
Dyami Brown was a Round 2 receiver. He's capable of being a Deebo Samuel-type receiver. Very good YAC ability.
Four picks. Four home runs.
Washington GM Martin Mayhew: "Those middle rounds, that's where your area guys and your scouts make their money. ... Our college scouts have done an outstanding job."— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) May 1, 2021
Props to @PeteHaileyNBCS— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 1, 2021
for inquiring about the origin of Ron Rivera's love for position flex.
Rivera said it started when he was the defensive coordinator under Norv Turner in San Diego in the late 2000s.
The year is 2026. Ron Rivera has just completed his seventh draft class in Washington — and completed his goal of assembling a position-less roster. No one is considered versatile because everyone is considered versatile. He sits in his office in Ashburn and smiles— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) May 1, 2021
It’s because they want McNeill and the Lions drafted him literally right before them (from what I’ve been reading from the NFL insiders, etc)— ♠️ (@antearoepperson) May 1, 2021
Tom Donahoe should’ve been calling Howie 6 kinds of “you dickheads” for that move. It was horrible. What was he thinking? Moving 3 spots for a 6th rounder...it was absolutely no reason to do that. I think he’s purposely sabotaging this team on just way out— Christian #LLYM (@CBeezy_215) May 1, 2021
Roseman: "At the end of the day, Milton Williams is an exciting player for our football team. We're excited to have him. I don't want to take away from his day. We're all excited about that pick."— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) May 1, 2021
Eagles' choice of Milton Williams wasn't met with enthusiasm from entire draft room. https://t.co/j8R83s6H34— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 1, 2021
I thought Round 1 of the draft was a phenomenal night for the #Eagles. Tonight was not a good night.— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) May 1, 2021
“Kellen Mond represents exactly what he doesn’t do well. … Cousins has been collecting checks there in Minnesota for a long time.”@RGiii doesn't think Kirk will be happy with the pick @brgridiron— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) May 1, 2021
