According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Miami Dolphins are mulling their options in the first and second round at the wide receiver position. Jackson has reported the team’s interest in receivers such as USC’s Marqise Lee, Mississippi’s Donte Moncrief, Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks, Florida State’s Kelvin Benjamin, and LSU’s Odell Beckham Jr, whom according to a report from NBC Sports, has a meeting set up with Miami this week on Friday and Saturday.
Odell Beckham Jr would be an interesting selection in the first round if he were to slip past NY at 18, barring that Michigan OT Taylor Lewan, Alabama ILB CJ Mosley, and Notre Dame OT Zack Martin are all off the board. Beckham would fill in nicely as Miami’s third receiver and could even take over for WR Mike Wallace if the team were to decide to part ways with the speedy receiver either next season or the season after.
Now Odell Beckham Jr would be nice to add to Miami’s offense, but the dolphins have much bigger holes to fill than receiver where the team appears to be ‘okay’ with Wallace, Hartline, Gibson, Matthews, and Binns. That being said, Hartline, Gibson, and Binns are all entering 2015 coming off of season ending injuries. Nonetheless, look for the team to kick the tires on a few prospects in the mid to late portion of the draft, that is of course unless a guy like LSU’s Jarvis Landry falls to 50!
