Miami Dolphins Draft Prospect: WR DeVante Parker


Mike Wallace‘s future with the Miami Dolphins is still very much up in the air, meaning that the team could look to the draft to replace their number one receiver. If Wallace walks, that would leave Brian Hartline and Jarvis Landry as Miami’s new number one receivers, and let’s face it, neither guy fits that role.  Free Agency has some possible names, but none of which would be worth their expected asking prices.  That leaves the 2015 NFL Draft.  Sure, the Dolphins could wait until the 2nd or 3rd round to address the situation, but chances are they would miss out on a sure fire number one receiver with both size and strength.  There is little to no doubt guys like DeVante Parker are going in the first round.

At 6 foot 3, 211 pounds, Parker has the build of a number one receiver.  He does not have fantastic speed off the line, but he does get faster down the field and as the play unfolds.  Even more, he is a fabulous route runner, and specializes in turning defensive backs to create separation.  Parker high points the ball, and is nearly unstoppable thanks to his height and an impressive vertical.  Analysts are comparing him to Hakeem Nicks, but Parker has even more potential.

  • Will Parker be there when Miami drafts at #14 overall?  More than likely yes.  There are really four main first round wide receivers in this draft: Parker, Dorial Green-Beckham, Amari Cooper and Kevin White.  Parker and White are ranked about the same, and fall behind Cooper and in front of Green-Beckham.  There is a good chance either White or Parker is there for the Dolphins at 14.  Will they pick him?  That depends on other factors such as Mike Wallace and who else is left on the board.
