Top 10? I'll take it after what we saw from last year's group of receivers where the Dolphins felt they needed a major upgrade in the offseason. There are still questions about this group: Can Fuller play a full season? Has Waddle returned to form after his injury? Can Preston Williams play more than half a season before another injury? How rusty is Albert Wilson and will he make the team?

10. Miami Dolphinshttps://www.pff.com/news/nfl-ranking-al ... 021-season
The Dolphins are suddenly loaded with speed and playmakers after adding Will Fuller V in free agency and drafting Jaylen Waddle with the sixth overall pick. Fuller is coming off a career-high 86.2 overall grade, and as one of the best deep threats in the NFL, he’s consistently made his offenses better. Waddle brings similar potential after averaging 18.9 yards per reception in college while averaging a gaudy 9.8 yards after the catch per reception.
The Fuller/Waddle duo will put defenses in a bind and open things up for DeVante Parker, who adds the size and catch-point skills the speedsters lack. Parker put up the seventh-highest contested-catch percentage in the league over the last two years at 53.1%. The Dolphins also have two other playmakers defenses must account for in Jakeem Grant and Lynn Bowden Jr. Both players are dangerous with the ball in their hands in the short game.
We’ve seen Mike Gesicki emerge as a receiving weapon at tight end since late in 2019, and he had the No. 7 receiving grade among his peers during the regular season last year at 79.4. The backup snaps will be a battle between Durham Smythe, Adam Shaheen and third-rounder Hunter Long, who was one of the better all-around tight ends in the draft.
Overall, the Dolphins are much improved at receiver, and they go from one of the weaker groups to playmakers to one of the fastest and most dangerous.
