- St. Brown was taken in the fourth round while Dyami Brown was taken in the 3rd
- The WR claimed he ‘didn’t see much of’ Brown during the Lions’ 36-27 win
- St. Brown had 17 catches, 180 yards, and three touchdowns, against Washington
Detroit Lions breakout wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has already been turning heads with his performances to start the season, but the second year player’s latest comments off the field may turn even a few more of them.
St. Brown has talked in the past about using the fact that he was the 17th wide receiver in the 2021 draft as motivation, and he took a some time to throw shade at one of the receivers taken above him in.
Dyami Brown was taken by the Washington Commanders in the third round, meanwhile St. Brown was a fourth-round pick who was the 17th wide receiver selected in last year’s draft.

‘The draft, it is what it is. Even the Commanders, they got a guy before me over there. I believe his name is Dyami Brown,’ St. Brown said.
‘I don’t know how many catches he had. You guys can probably tell me that. Or how many yards he had, but I don’t forget things like that.’
Brown was taken with the 82nd overall pick, in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft after playing at the University of North Carolina. He recorded only 12 receptions for 165 yards during his rookie season.

This year Brown appears to have fallen even further down the Commanders depth chart as hasn’t been thrown a signal pass through Washington’s first two games. For that matter he has barely even seen the field, only being on the field for four offensive snaps so far.
St. Brown on the other hand wasn’t drafted until the Lions took him with the 112th overall pick in the fourth round of the same draft.
Unlike his counterpart St. Brown had a tremendous rookie season and recorded 90 receptions for 912 yards and five touchdowns. Throughout the first two games of this season he has recorded 17 catches, 180 yards, and three touchdowns.

Those early season numbers are on pace to shatter his rookie totals and solidify him as one of the better wide receivers in the NFL.
‘I don’t forget things like that,’ St. Brown said. ‘I see him across the sideline from where I’m standing during the game, and I’m going to give every team hell.’
Responding to one final question on the topic St. Brown said ‘I didn’t see him on the field much,’ with a very visible grin written across his face.
