Just like last year, the 2021 NFL Draft is loaded with wide receiver prospects. The Raiders already selected two last year and may not be in the market for another one in 2021. However, that could change if the team moves on from Nelson Agholor. If the Raiders do take a wideout this year, here are three late-round options they should consider.
The Raiders should consider using a late-round pick on these wideouts
Dyami Brown, North Carolina
If ‘Nelly’ is playing somewhere else in 2021, the Raiders would be wise to grab someone with similar talents. This is where Dyami Brown comes in. In his most recent season, he displayed tremendous down field ability. He is excellent at stacking defensive backs down the field, has high-end speed and great hands. Last year, the North Carolina product had 1,099 yards on 55 catches and averaged almost 20 yards per reception. He could be a perfect replacement for Nelson Agholor.
Tamorrion Terry, Florida State
The first thing you notice about Terry is his immense size at 6-foot-4 and 209 pounds. This is even more exciting when you turn on the tape and see he has legit speed. The Seminoles standout will likely run in the 4.4’s, making him an incredibly tantalizing prospect. Where he needs work is in his route running and his hands. Simply, he does not run a robust route tree and will need a lot of polish in this area. He also has some incredibly frustrating drop issues. While Terry is a work in progress, the Raiders would be wise to take a chance at his potential.
Amon-Ra St. Brown, Southern California
After playing alongside fellow wide receiver Michael Pittman in 2019, it was St. Brown’s turn to show off his skill set in 2020. He is a physical wide receiver with tremendous hands who does a great job of winning in the air and at the catch point. Although St. Brown lacks long speed, he could give quarterback Derek Carr a reliable option in the passing game with his sure hands. Furthermore, these talents could be needed more so if Bryan Edwards cannot overcome his injury bug.
While the Silver and Black should surely focus on defense, it is never a bad idea to add to a strength. This rings even more true when the quarterback has proven he needs all the help he can get. Look for the Raiders to add at least one more pass catcher this offseason.
