The Miami Dolphins selected Thomas Duarte in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 231st overall.
Duarte was a receiver at UCLA but moves to tight end due to a lack of NFL speed. A ceremonial move to tight end would do well for his fantasy potential, but not necessarily his odds of making the roster. If he does stick, though, he's worth monitoring to see if fantasy owners can more or less get a wideout with tight end classification.
The Miami Dolphins selected Brandon Doughty in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 223rd overall.
Doughty is old for a rookie and showed some problems with decision making earlier in his career, but he was extremely productive for the last two. After falling just short of 10,000 yards and 100 passing touchdowns over the last two years, Doughty will hope his video game numbers translate to NFL success.
Lucas played safety in 2015 but played cornerback before that. It's not clear which he might play for Miami. Lucas (6-foot, 201) certainly showed cornerback athleticism at his pro day, running the 40 in 4.45 seconds while displaying a 38.5-inch vertical.
The Miami Dolphins selected Grant in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 186th overall.
Grant's production at Texas Tech speaks for itself (90 catches, 1,268 yards in 2015), and his tape shows him to be one of the quickest and most elusive prospects in this year's class. However, the biggest knock on Grant, and the biggest hurdle standing in his way of a successful NFL career, is his size. Grant checks in at 5-6, 165 pounds, which would make him one of the smallest players to ever step on an NFL field. He has blazing speed with a 4.38, 40-yard dash and a 4.03 shuttle time, but his hands are suspect at best. Grant's elusiveness could get him onto the field, but he'll need to work on route running and catching ability to warrant any sort significant role in Miami's offense. He could be a practice squad candidate as a rookie.
The Miami Dolphins selected Leonte Carroo in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 86th overall.
It's not a good landing spot for Carroo's fantasy value -- Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker aren't going anywhere -- but it's an excellent value for the Dolphins. Carroo is an innately skilled receiver with adequate athleticism to project as a legitimate NFL contributor, and his incredible production at Rutgers gives reason to believe he'll produce if he gets targets. The target count could be meager for the foreseeable future, though.
