The Dolphins traded three picks for the right to move up and draft receiver Leonte Carroo back in 2016, but his run in Miami may be over after just two seasons. Carroo faces “mounting odds” to make the team, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Although the team apparently loves the “urgency” he’s shown this year, the crowded receiver depth chart seems likely to push him off the roster. Five receivers are already locked into roster spots, and Carroo is competing with a slew of other players for a potential sixth spot. With just ten catches to his name through two seasons, it looks like it could be the end of the line for the oft-injured former 86th overall pick.

Here’s more from the league’s Eastern divisions:

  • The pick the Vikings traded to the Giants for center Brett Jones is conditional, according to longtime NFL writer Howard Balzer (Twitter link). The pick, a 2019 seventh-rounder, was previously reported to be guaranteed.
  • The Jets will have a few tough calls to make when they have to trim their roster down. Matt Stypulkoski of NJ.com took a stab at projecting the roster, and had a few interesting predictions. He thinks it “doesn’t make sense for the Jets to trade” Teddy Bridgewater, and that the Jets will keep all three of their signal callers. He also predicts running backs Thomas Rawls, Charcandrick West, and tight end Clive Walford to be cut.
  • Meanwhile, Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com took a look at key decisions the Eagles will have to make on cutdown day. He thinks there “is reason to think” rookie running back Josh Adams won’t make it through waivers to the team’s practice squad if they cut him. Adams has impressed and been electric at times this preseason, and Shorr-Parks thinks teams might put in a claim on him as he received “plenty of interest” as an undrafted free agent.
