The Dolphins will be in an interesting position at the end of the season when it comes to making decisions about their wideout room. Waddle is the only player who will for sure be on the roster in 2022, but which other wideouts will be is the question.
Every week DeVante Parker plays in he shows brilliant chemistry with Tagovailoa, but the issue is that Parker doesn’t play every week. Will Fuller likely won’t return, and there are unknowns surrounding who else will round out the wideout room.
Adding a guy like Maryland wideout Dontay Demus Jr. would be an intriguing pickup in the fourth round after the Dolphins traded away their third-round pick to move up and land their running back of the future.
Demus, whose season was cut short due to a knee injury, only played in five games but was in line for a career season. In those five games, Demus put together 28 receptions for 507 yards and three touchdowns. He had a whopping 18.1 yards per catch average, which is the biggest takeaway from his stat line.
With a 6-foot-3 frame, Demus is a speed wideout who is able to go over the top of players. He would likely be able to play the role the Dolphins envisioned Fuller to take when he was signed to a one-year deal.
If Demus is deemed healthy and cleared of his knee injury, it could be a key, and cheap, addition to the Dolphins wideout room that has two clear options and unknowns below it.
