He hasn't been bad, but he hasn't been a #1 WR which is what we drafted him to be. Also, he disappears at times. While we are hoping that this is his year, we aren't holding our breath waiting for it. Just think what kind of a year the Dolphins could have offensively if Parker found his groove ... no, don't do that. You'll just end up crying by season's end.

As the Dolphins once again are hoping this year will be the year for Parker, it’s worth pointing out that as they attempted to upgrade their receiving corps in 2015, having just parted with Mike Wallace, they actually did about as well as they could in the draft.

Six receivers were taken in the first round that year. Amari Cooper clearly was the best of them — he has been to two Pro Bowls, has 2,903 yards and 18 TDs — but he was snatched by the Raiders with the fourth overall pick.

Parker has been the best of the rest. Consider:

Kevin White, Bears (No. 7 overall): Limited to five career games because of injuries. Chicago declined to pick up his fifth-year option.

Parker (No. 14): 139 receptions, 1,909 yards, eight TDs.

Nelson Agholor, Eagles (No. 20): Close to Parker with 121 catches, 1,416 yards, 11 TDs.

Breshad Perriman, Ravens (No. 26): 43 catches, 576 yards, three TDs.

Phillip Dorsett, Colts/currently with Patriots (No. 29): 63 catches, 947 yards, three TDs.

Will this year be the “gigantic” year the Dolphins expected of Parker last year? Nobody is buying that until they see it. For now, it’s hard to tell if there are signs of change. Fellow receiver Jakeem Grant said Parker’s preparation this offseason is “way different” than last year.

That tells me the WR class of the 15 draft sucks.

It reinforces to me that the NFL draft has worse odds than Vegas of hitting a winner.

Rd. 2:
Pick 37: Devin Smith - Released By Jets
Pick 40: Dorial Green-Beckham Traded & Released
Pick 41: Devin Funchess - Finding Some Success

I recalled the discussions on this board about which Wr. Miami should be. I was always on the Green-Beckham train. I recall Jalen Strong getting some love. He busted as well. Perriman always scared me as a 1st Rder.

Wow. It turned out to be a reach on receivers.

Tony and I were pulling for Miami to draft him because he had incredible hands. Unfortunately he had a bad attitude and it caused him to drop.

Just looked him up, he was let go by Houston after 2 seasons and then tore his ACL in December while playing for Jacksonville.

He hasn't always been used correctly and has had four different starting qb's. This is a big year for him and he's not far from where he needs to be...

1100 yds and 8 TDS and I'm happy.

He needs to stay healthy and on the field. He is a deep threat that requires attention and creates a mismatch elsewhere. With Landry gone, Parker will get his chances if he can stay on the field. Tannehill has really improved on the deep passing game.
