It’s looking more and more like we will have a tough time keeping Kenny Stills in Miami with teams ready to pony up big money for his services. If that happens we will not lack for replacement options in this draft. I would not expect to use an early pick on a receiver though. I would expect a compensatory 4th round pick next year if we lose him.

 

Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Eagles and a “California team” are currently “in play” for Dolphins impending free agent WR Kenny Stills. According to Kelly, Dolphins executive Mike Tannenbaum is aware of Philadelphia’s interest in Stills.

 

The Miami Herald reports impending free agent Kenny Stills "likes the West Coast" and an offer from an AFC West or NFC West team "could be attractive."

 

Landry, Parker and Carroo are never going to be accused of having world-class speed, and thats perfectly fine because its not their game. Those guys win with physicality and quickness rather than pure raw speed. Right now that is Stills role. He lifts the top off of secondaries and torches them for deep scores and we will definitely miss that element if he leaves in free agency. So I present a list of possible replacements in the upcoming draft. These are all vertical wide receivers with wheels that I feel we have a chance to draft on day 3 where we currently have 4 picks. So you won’t see guys like Carlos Henderson or Chad Hansen listed here who should be drafted very early on.

 

 

Shelton Gibson, WR, West Virginia Height: 5-11. Weight: 190
Dane Brugler says he “Mixes gears in his routes and is a legit deep threat” Had 20 receptions of 40 or more yards the past 2 seasons. Tony Pauline hears that Gibson "should run the 40 in the 4.3s at the combine," a development which would "only enhance his draft stock." The 5-foot-11, 188-pounder is a pure burner who can pop the lid off of coverages.

Mack Hollins, WR, North Carolina Height: 6-4. Weight: 210
He’s a tall burner who glides past corners and safeties before they know what hit them. Legitimate vertical threat who finished with 20 touchdowns on just 71 catches. Dangerous run-after-catch deep crossing routes and slants.

Jalen Robinette, WR, Air Force Height: 6-3. Weight: 215
He led the nation with 27.4 yards per catch in 2016 out of an Air Force option offense. Very limited route runner. Great vertical leap on deep passes. Gets great separation and attacks contested balls in the air.

Travin Dural, WR, LSU Height: 6-2. Weight: 192
Was held back by poor Quarterback play and injuries at LSU. He’s big and he’s fast and will demand safeties attention in the NFL. Pro Football Focus compared him to Mike Wallace.

Josh Malone*, WR, Tennessee Height: 6-3. Weight: 198
Bucky Brooks wrote that Malone's "slick route-running skills" stand out when compared to those of other similarly-sized wideouts. "Malone runs past defenders with ease and flashes strong hands and natural ball skills wrestling jump balls away from defensive backs"

Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M Height: 6-2. Weight: 187
Explosive vertical threat who can open his hips and out-stride a cornerback down the field. Has speed to burn and tracks the ball extremely well. Excellent ball skills and adjustment. Consistent red-zone threat. Wins up-and-over, with back shoulder fades.

Jamari Staples, WR, Louisville Height: 6-3. Weight: 190
 Potential was held back because of QB Lamar Jackson. Possesses good hands and body control.

K.D. Cannon*, WR, Baylor Height: 6-0. Weight: 180
Field stretcher with homerun potential. Had 15 receptions of 40 or more yards the past 2 seasons. Below average route runner that has had injury issues and inconsistent hands at times.

Stacy Coley, WR, Miami Height: 6-1. Weight: 185
Best-suited as a vertical slot receiver, Good hands, tracks the ball well over the shoulder. Gets separation on crossers and posts with his speed alone. Possesses another gear to track down the deep shots.

Before Free Agency totally upends every Mock Draft currently posted to the internet let's see what Miami could be looking at in the first 2 Rounds.  The challenge here is the QB carousel aka will teams opt to sign or trade for a guy in what is generally considered a weak QB draft?  I think Cleveland lands Tyrod Taylor, Chicago trades for Jimmy Garoppolo, New York signs Mike Glennon and Buffalo signs Nick Foles.  Only San Francisco gambles on an early QB because Coach Kyle Shanahan will have the confidence to win some games with a rookie.  Here goes!

 

1. Cleveland - Myles Garrett  DE

 

2. San Francisco - Mitch Trubisky  QB

 

3. Chicago - Jonathan Allen  DE

 

4. Jacksonville - Malik Hooker  S

 

5. Tennessee - Jamal Adams  S

 

6. New York Jets - Marshon Lattimore  CB

 

7. Los Angeles Chargers - Reuben Foster  LB

 

8. Carolina - Soloman Thomas  DE

 

9. Cincinatti - Teez Tabor  CB

 

10. Buffalo - Marlon Humphrey  CB

 

11. New Orleans - Taco Charlton  DE

 

12. Cleveland - Leonard Fournette  RB

 

13. Arizona - OJ Howard  TE

 

14. Indianapolis - Derek Barnett  DE

 

15. Philadelphia - Dalvin Cook  RB

 

16. Baltimore - Corey Davis  WR

 

17. Washington - Zach Cunningham  LB

 

18. Tennessee - Mike Williams  WR

 

19. Tampa Bay - David Njoku  TE

 

20. Denver - Ryan Ramczyk  OT

 

21. Detroit - Takkarist McKinley  DE

 

22. Miami - Haason Reddick

 

He may be a bit of a project at LB but he has a relentless motor, speed to cover and made his bones getting after the QB from the edge in college.  After some seasoning he may be the MLB of the future.

 

23. New York Giants - Cam Robinson  OT

 

24. Oakland - Quincy Wilson  CB

 

25. Houston - Deshaun Watson  QB

 

26. Seattle - Garrett Bolles  OT

 

27. Kansas City - Alvin Kamara  RB

 

28. Dallas - Charles Harris  DE

 

29. Green Bay - Sidney Jones  CB

 

30. Pittsburgh - Jabril Peppers  S

 

31. Atlanta - Tim Williams  DE/LB

 

32. New England - Raekwon McMillian  LB

 

Round 2

 

1. Cleveland - Tredavious White  CB

 

2. San Francisco - Christian McCaffrey  RB

 

3. New England - (Pick Traded for Jimmy Garoppolo) TJ Watt  LB/DE

 

4. Jacksonville - Cordrea Tankersly  CB

 

5. Los Angeles Rams - John Ross  WR

 

6. Los Angeles Chargers - Forrest Lamp  OG

 

7. New York Jets - Budda Baker  S

 

8. Carolina - Antonio Garcia  OT

 

9. Cincinatti - Caleb Brantley  DT

 

10. New Orleans - Jarrad Davis  LB

 

11. Philadelphia - Carlos Watkins  DT

 

12. Buffalo - Curtis Samuel  WR

 

13. Arizona - Deshone Kizer  QB

 

14. Minnesota - Cooper Kupp  WR

 

15. Baltimore - Evan Engram  TE

 

16. Indianapolis - Dorian Johnson  OG

 

17. Washington - Carl Lawson  DE

 

18. Tampa Bay - Malik McDowell  DT

 

19. Denver - Jourdan Lewis  CB

 

20. Cleveland - Dion Dawkins  OG

 

21. Detroit - Desmond King  CB/S

 

22. Miami - Tarell Basham  DE

 

Tip of the cap to Swerve for highlighting this guy.  He's the perfect prospect to groom under Cameron Wake and eventually take over.  He'll step right in as very good pass rusher in the DE rotation.

 

23. New York Giants - Davis Webb  QB

 

24. Oakland - D'Onta Foreman  RB

 

25. Houston - Justin Evans  S

 

26. Seattle - Dalvin Tomlinson  DT

 

27. Kansas City - Marcus Williams  S

 

28. Dallas - Rasul Douglas  CB

 

29. Green Bay - Ryan Anderson  LB

 

30. Pittsburgh - Roderick Johnson  OT

 

31. Atlanta - Kevin King  CB/S

 

32. New England - Chris Wormley  DT/DE
