Wide Receiver –
For the second straight off season, the Miami Dolphins will spend their time and money surrounding quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with weapons. Last year’s additions were hit or miss, with Jaylen Waddle breaking out and Will Fuller V costing the team $2.5 million per catch.
There are only a couple of guys under contract. Waddle and DeVante Parker are the only wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last year, and both main tight end targets are unrestricted free agents in 2022. The future of both positions is a huge question mark, especially if Miami chooses to shop Parker and move on from the oft-injured veteran. Fan favorite Mack Hollins will be seeking a new deal, and Preston Williams is a restricted free agent. It is arguable whether Lynn Bowden Jr. should be considered a running back or a wide out, but McDaniel will certainly have a plan for the swiss army knife.
The Dolphins hold a late pick in the first round, an area which should be rich with wide receiver talent in this year’s class. They could add a young college prospect to pair with Waddle, or they could even shop the pick for an established, veteran wide out like Calvin Ridley.
