Despite what many consider to have been an overachieving season for the Miami Dolphins, a very pressing need emerged which caused concern amongst the fan base as the week's progressed.
It's no secret that the biggest need that the team must address is at wide receiver. Impending free agent Brian Hartline had a breakout season in his fourth year in the league posting 1,083 yards however he only hauled in a single touchdown reception. Hartline is a reliable pass catcher and a player that many teams will covert but he does not possess the skill set to be a No.1 receiver in the NFL. Davone Bess is also a solid option in the passing game however he is better suited as a slot reciever as opposed to one who can stretch the field. The position of third wide receiver on the team was an ongoing carousel with not one player showing the ability to make a significant impact. Analyzing the Dolphins current core of receivers, its clear that the team lacks a deep threat.
