Updating Dolphins draft needs: Receiver


The NFL draft is just one day away, and we are examining updated team needs heading into this event. On Wednesday, we take a look at another position on offense Miami has watched closely in this draft.

Updated need: Wide receiver

Analysis: Is wide receiver really a need for the Dolphins? It’s a matter of perspective. On one end, the Dolphins finished the year with three receivers on their roster with knee injuries: Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson and Armon Binns. On the other hand, all three players are returning to join Mike Wallace, Rishard Matthews and free-agent pickup Damian Williams. Miami has a deep group of veterans if everyone stays healthy. But the Dolphins spent a lot of time this offseason scouting and meeting with rookie wide receivers. Top names such as USC’s Marqise Lee, Clemson’s Martavis Bryant and LSU’s Odell Beckham Jr. all visited Miami’s training facility in Davie, Florida, in recent weeks. This may be a clue Miami could be looking at this deep and talented position early within the first two rounds.
