    Drew Rosenhaus: Why the Dolphins are looking hard at WRs in this draft

    From WSVN channel 7 south Florida last night 11:30-

    Rosenhaus: Miami is spending significant time looking at WRs and bringing them in for visits for one simple reason- it's a great year to draft a WR, a very deep class. That's it, that's why all the interest.

    I think that he's right- to what extent the Wallace contract and a desire to upgrade from Hartline and his $6 million a year contract after 2014, who knows. But the 1st 2-3 rounds have plenty of quality WRs to choose from- Lee, Cooks, Bekham, Moncrief, Matthews, Bryant, Benjamin, Adams, Robinson.

    I still think that we go OL and WR in the 1st 2 rounds, the question is in what order. And actually, the OL and Wr positions are so deep that my darkhorse would be to squeeze OLB Kyle VAn Noy in at rd 2 if available, then go OL and WR in rds 1 and 3. Depending on the board, take the best WR or OL in rd 1 and then take the other position in rd 3.

    I've been saying this all along. Too good of a receiver class to ignore. I understand "needs", but I also think about the future beyond year 1. And I personally think that the wide receiver position may provide the best value this year, especially at pick #50. Though you will not hear me complain about them grabbing one at #19. I think it'll just depend on how the draft falls.

    I think we all admire Hartline and most of us understand what and who he is as a player. He is very dependable and solid. Nothing spectacular unfortunately. He is a great 3rd receiver who happens to be our 2nd. That's fine. He doesn't suck at it he's just not great at it. Having a 3 receiver set of Wallace, Lee, and Hartline makes me giggle inside. I think Lee might be one of the mot undervalued players in this draft. Only because this draft is so strong is he not being thought of in the Top 5-10. Guy runs great routes, catches the ball, runs away from people, breaks tackles and has been doing it consistently for 3 years. Look at his partner in crime. Woods had a solid year last year with 40 catches and 587 yards receiving with 3 tds. He had some of the worst and inconsistent QB play in the league. Lee is better, imo, way better.
    Let's go Miami!!!!

    I agree but I'm hoping its the double agent smoke screen. Where we want others to think its a smokescreen and then draft one. Value at 19 is going to be at receiver.

    That was Ireland who didn't like drafting skill players early.

    true...if ireland was here you can damn well bet that top pick would be a right tackle...set your watch to it even...still the timing of this wr interest has me wondering

    I agree the timing is weird, but if this is a very deep WR draft and Hickey is true to what he says about drafting BPA over need then there's a really good chance that the BPA at 19 is going to be a WR. I'm starting to believe this is less smoke, and more substance. IMHO WR is definitely on Fins radar.

    I agree, but how much does having a different GM mean to all of this?
