    Are Dolphins set at receiver?

    The first-round pick was obvious. Everyone knew the Miami Dolphins loved former Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the No. 8 overall pick, which went according to form.

    But after that, I was curious when Miami was going to take a wide receiver in the draft. It didnít happen in the second round. It didnít happen in the third, fourth or fifth rounds.

    Miami finally drafted a pair of receivers in the sixth and seventh rounds. The Dolphins selected B.J. Cunningham of Michigan State and Rishard Matthews of Nevada.

    How Miami's current roster of receivers did in 2011.
    Player Rec. Yds.
    Brian Hartline 35 549
    Davone Bess 51 537
    *Legedu Naanee 44 467
    Clyde Gates 2 19
    Roberto Wallace 0 0
    B.J. Cunningham rookie no stats
    Rishard Matthews rookie no stats
    *Free-agent acquisition


    "I think we drafted a couple good players that we think could ascend," Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said. "But we werenít going to reach. Thatís not my philosophy."

    Does Miami have enough to be effective at wide receiver next season? Here is a look at the players currently on the roster.

    I see this year's WR's being: Hartline, Gates, Bess, Wallace, Cunningham, and Matthews.

    Hell no! The draft was a complete fail at WR. Ireland threw a couple of late picks in who will have no impact for a few years...if ever. I doubt the guy from Nevada even makes the team...and I'm a UNR grad, so I'm pulling for him.

    Even the TE we picked up is questionable. He had a bad year last year and his numbers are really down.

    I'm not convinced with Gates. He may have speed...but from what I have seen, that's all he has.

    There's still legit free agents out there. I'd like to see Miami at least give tryouts to some of these guys. What's OchoCinco doing now? How about seeing if TO has got something left in the tank. If that knee is right he could definitely contribute. Didn't Mooch run a WCO?

    miami would look at Mike Simms Walker and Jacoby Jones before TO and chad johnson. I think they go to camp as is and wait for the final cuts.

    It certainly isn't pretty . . . but I think by adding Egnew and Lamar Miller, along with Fasano, Clay, Reggie and DT . . . we have pass catchers at OTHER positions than WR. And let's face it, we have some "Green Bay like" WR's in Hartline and Bess. The key will have to be Gates making strides as that deep threat we need him to be . . . and it wouldn't hurt if one of the rookies are Wallace or Moore step up also.
