The Miami Dolphins offense struggled last season and then the team traded their best wide receiver during this past off-season, making the 2012 receivers group as one of the weakest in the league entering the upcoming season. But that all could change on Thursday during when the NFL supplemental draft takes place.
Josh Gordon is entering the league after missing last season at Baylor, but in 2012 the 6'3" youngster caught 42 passes for 714 yards and seven scores. Gordon has terrific speed and with a 225 pound frame, he has the body to play immediately in the league.
The Miami Dolphins have two third round picks in next year's NFL Draft and taking a gamble on a player with such a high ceiling is a good gamble for a franchise that needs an impact player on the outside.
Several teams are showing interest in the young wide receiver and he could go in the second round, but Miami needs to add talent around their rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill and using a second or third round pick on such a talent is a good option for a team with so many needs.
