Here is who we have who could potentially play for the Dolphins:
Traditionally we keep 5. Will we keep 6? I've been hearing that Ford was a steal in the 7th round, and that the Dolphins reached with Carroo by trading two draft picks to move up.
Since Grant has the most the trade value of the bottom 3, do we trade Grant, keep Ford, and cut Carroo (he will be picked up by another team) and go with our traditional 5? Grant is a speedy playmaker who plays like a bigger receiver, I would like to keep Grant as he also plays special teams. I just don't see us going with 6 receivers when we need DL, OL, CB, and LB depth. Ford seems to be injury prone, but he studies that playbook (unlike Carroo who has started to do that more recently) and is a great route runner. He also has leaping ability.

Simple math tells us that no more than five can appear on the field at any time, and pass protection needs to be incredible to pull that off. It, so far this camp, has not been. Then there’s this stat from Pro Football Focus: The Dolphins did not go five-wide once last year.
So there’s no way that the Dolphins would be able to use all six of these guys with any kind of regularity without putting some serious money on the bench. Stills, Amendola and Wilson all have annual salaries of at least $6 million.
