It was another day of OTAs for the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, which means another opportunity to shower a player with praise due to their positive practice performance from the previous session. Who donned the orange threads this time?
This player may not be the first player you think of when you list off the best players on this Miami Dolphins roster...
New Dolphins wide receiver, River Cracraft earned the honors today! Tyreek Hill and Mike Gesicki missed the last OTA session, and Cracraft reportedly stepped up in their absences - so much so that he was named practice player of the day.
Cracraft becomes the first “under the radar” selection as he’s the only winner who presumably will not play a significant number of snaps for the Miami Dolphins this upcoming season, excluding possible special teams work. He also becomes just the fourth offensive player to win the award, joining Tua Tagovailoa, Robert Hunt and Tyreek Hill as orange jersey award recipients.
