Morning take: Will Dolphins draft a WR?
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the Web:
Morning take: Miami has held pre-draft visits with many top receiver prospects, such as Odell Beckham Jr. and Marqise Lee. However, any receiver drafted in the first round would be a backup behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline. Filling bigger needs at No. 19 would be ideal.
- Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald examines why the Dolphins have interest in rookie wide receivers.
Morning take: Fix the offensive line and run defense are at the top of my list. If the Dolphins accomplish that, it will be a good week for them.
- Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel takes a look at the Dolphins' to-do list in the draft.
Morning take: Despite months of homework, there are still risks involved with every draft pick. Hickey is expected to hit on picks right away and get more production than last year’s rookie class.
Morning take: Most expect the Dolphins to try to fix their offensive line. But the draft board may not fall that way. Miami general manager Dennis Hickey says he will take the best available player, regardless of position.
- Dave George of the Palm Beach Post writes first-year general manager Dennis Hickey needs a little luck in this draft.
