Who Is Miami's "Kevin Ogletree"?

The Importance Of A 3rd WR In Today's NFLI know it is only one game in the NFL year, but the Cowboys @ Giants game pointed out the importance of a 3rd WR. Basically, the game came down to which 3rd WR for which team performed the best. In this case, Kevin Ogletree for Dallas performed better than Domenik Hixon for New York. Ogletree’s line for the game: 8 receptions, 114 yards (a long of 40 yds), 2 TD’s, 11 Targets It isn’t so much about the stats for me. It’s the targets. This suggests that the coverage was dictating that he get thrown the ball. It is the ability to have another weapon on the field outside of your starting WR’s who will command the majority of the coverage. It is the ability to beat the Nickel CB and be productive. Ogletree, prior to Wednesday’s game, had a total of 25 receptions and 0 TD’s in his previous 3 years with the Cowboys. He is what Miami wanted in Roberto Wallace and Marlon Moore, a developmental WR that when called upon in his 4th year could get open and produce. Last year would the Giants have won the Super Bowl without their 3rd WR in Victor Cruz? I don’t think so. The really good offenses in the NFL have that 3rd WR, that 3rd go to guy. So I will ask the question: WHO IS MIAMI’S "KEVIN OGLETREE" THIS YEAR?
