We're nearly through with the first half of the 2015 Daily Norseman Community Mock Draft, as we're up to the fourteenth overall selection. This selection belongs to the Miami Dolphins, a team that the Vikings have done business with already this off-season with the acquisition of receiver Mike Wallace. Virtual GM SkolChad is in charge of things down on South Beach, and with this selection, he has decided to fill the hole that was created by Wallace's departure.
With the fourteenth pick in the 2015 Daily Norseman Community Mock Draft, the Miami Dolphins select. . .
DeVante Parker, wide receiver, University of Louisville
Here's what SkolChad had to say about the selection.
The Miami Dolphins have huge needs at receiver and corner. However, their pass defense was pretty good last year, so they can afford to address corner later in the draft. They have a much bigger need at receiver after trading away Mike Wallace. They need a tall guy to be a legitimate deep threat for their offense. Pairing Parker with newly acquired pieces in Kenny Stills and Jordan Cameron would be a good foundation for Ryan Tannehill to create a consistent offense for the future.
I really like this selection for the Dolphins. Miami is convinced that Tannehill is the guy for them going forward, and they're going to surround him with weapons. Parker has drawn a lot of comparisons to current Bengals' wide receiver A.J. Green, but had some injury issues in college that kept him from putting up the kind of numbers you'd like to see from a potential #1 wide receiver. At 6'3" and about 210 pounds, he has the size and athletic ability to make an impact in the Miami offensive pretty early on.
