Dolphins select Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle at #6

After weeks of speculation and some mild bickering among Dolphins punditry, Miami has selected Jaylen Waddle from Alabama. After trading back from 3 to 12 then back up to 6 early in the off-season it was clear the Dolphins were targeting a specific player and now we know who.

Waddle put up 1,999 yards and 17 touchdowns on 106 catches in his 3 years at Alabama, catching 80.3% of his targets. He racked up 19 missed tackles, a for a guy who is 5’10” and 182 pounds an astonishing 10/15 on contested catches. With an average depth of target of 10 yards and blistering pace you can be sure he’ll help that Dolphins O go more vertical in the coming seasons.

JAYLEN WADDLE IS AN EXPLOSIVE BIG PLAY WAITING TO HAPPEN

Draft Network had this to say about him, “Jaylen Waddle is a dynamic wideout that’s spent time on the outside, in the slot, and periodically as a chess piece in the backfield. Possessing a unique skill set, he’s a smaller wideout that contains a well diverse skill set. With notches of speed that most defenders are incapable of reaching, he plays the game with a jetpack. The former Crimson Tide wideout makes his surroundings look as if they’re moving in slow motion compared to his high level controlled speed.
