I’m not going to act like I know what the Dolphins have planned in their draft room because nobody has a clue what this team plans on doing. I think we can all agree that a pass catcher is high up on the list. So let’s say Kyle Pitts and Ja’Marr Chase are off the board when the Dolphins select at #6. That would leave the team to choose between one of the Alabama wide receivers in either DeVonta Smith or Jaylen Waddle. Smith is a Heisman Trophy winner but their is some concern about his size/thin frame. Waddle is a speedster but has durability concerns. The Dolphins could choose either of these two at #6 or perhaps even trade back a bit if their choices in Pitts or Chase are gone.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
