Round three of every draft is full of hidden gems and big time potential players. The 2021 NFL Draft was no exception. There are two players in particular that make me feel like not only will they have the potential to be the next Alvin Kamara, Fred Warner or Kevin Byard . So who are the biggest steals of the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft?
Round 3 Pick 82: WR Dyami Brown, Washington Football Team
I have absolutely no clue why or how Dyami Brown fell into the latter half of the third round. He is fast, explosive, reliable, and consistent. Brown adds a new element to the WFT offense to go along with the veteran presence of both Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel. I can see Dyami Brown becoming a premier receiver not just on the WFT but also in the league.
Round 3 Pick 69: LB/DE Joseph Ossai, Cincinnati Bengals
Ossai might not have a clear role in this defense but there is one sure thing, the dude is a natural play maker. He played both inside and outside rush linebacker for the Longhorns but played his best when rushing to passer. Ossai has a relentless motor and incredible athleticism. If I’m Lou Anarumo, I would just let Ossai be a down hill rover type player who is a free range TFL and sack monster. This is great talent and value for the third round.
Honorable Mention: ILB Baron Browning, Denver Broncos
