3 top NFL Draft prospects who might disappoint Miami Dolphins fans
By Brian Miller
Jaylen Waddle is one of the top receivers in this draft but if the Dolphins take him at six, fans may want to know why they chose him over the speedier and more exciting Devonta Smith. Of course, if Smith is not on the board they will ask why the selection wasn’t Ja’Marr Chase or Kyle Pitts.

The truth is Waddle is an excellent prospect and familiar with Tua Tagovailoa. He is an exciting player to watch play but doesn’t carry a Heisman Trophy on his shoulder and many don’t see him being draft in the top 10.
If Waddle turns out to be the pick, fans are going to wonder why Miami bothered to trade back up to six from 12. There is no guarantee that Waddle would last that long but six still seems too high. The Lions, Panthers, and Broncos are not going to draft a receiver. The Cowboys are likely to go cornerback which would mean only the New York Giants would likely be in play for Waddle at pick 11 and they need offensive line help a lot more.
Waddle isn’t a bad pick but he wouldn’t carry the same weight of draft day excitement at six as the other top receivers would.
