    Sports Buzz: Dolphins Focusing on WRs in Draft

    We reported in recent days that the Dolphins have summoned Clemson receiver Martavis Bryant and Mississippi receiver Donte Moncrief to team headquarters to meet with coaches and front-office officials. (Both are likely second- or third-round picks.)

    And a source confirmed tonight that USC receiver Marqise Lee will visit Dolphins headquarters on Tuesday, as first reported this evening by ESPN’s James Walker. That means at least three of the Dolphins’ 30 permitted visits will involve receivers, a position that might be their deepest on the team.

    If Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin is available at No. 19, it would be surprising if the Dolphins opted for Lee instead. But if Martin is off the board at No. 19, everything is in play. And the Dolphins are showing more interest in receivers than most expected.

    Good...if Hickey truly is a BPA type of GM then there will be a solid chance that a WR would be the BPA at some point...probably early.

    I think that a case could be made for Lee in the first and imo Brandin Cooks, even though he doesn't fit the size profile that Philbin wants. 2nd/3rd rds- Moncrief, Bryant and I would add Jordan Matthews to that list.

    Lee seems like a good scheme fit, and exactly the type of wr philbin covets.

    With three wrs with knee injuries, it's not surprising were looking hard at WR.

    And I also think hartline is a joke of a #2 WR. I don't know why he gets such a pass around here, but he makes no plays and is way to reliant on double and triple moves to create separation. I wonder how many times tannehill got sacked waiting for him to get open.

    Hartline is decent, but the team ended up paying around $6 million a year for a pretty good receiver, not a whole lot more than that imo.

    Moncrief and Matthews fit the bill, tall and relatively thick, muscular receivers. Bryant is a little more slender but he's a big one at 6-4, 211 lbs.

    Nice to hear they're looking at wide receivers. Class is too damn good to ignore.

    I'd think Philbin/Hickey will be looking rather hard at Matthews. He could be available at 50 and he fits the 'high character' profile that Philbin/Hickey likes.

    I would love to get another guy on the outside and maybe find a home for Hartline in the slot and Wallace and Lee on the outside. I like that more than anything. Lee was so good two years ago I think he's been undervalued now.
    Let's go Miami!!!!
