Here’s why the Dolphins WRs room will be easy to cut for the 53-man roster

Here’s why the Dolphins WRs room will be easy to cut for the 53-man roster

The Miami Dolphins will carry six WRs and potentially seven for the 2024 season, depending on how the other positions perform when training camp arrives. We know Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle and Odell Beckham Jr. will make the top three, but who else will make the final list?

By the time training camp rolls around, 12 players will fill the WR room, provided the Dolphins don’t add any before then. We know the top three, but the real competition will come deeper down the roster. Here’s our take on things, as Mike McDaniel will have to make one final call in the coming months.

We can’t say Braxton Berrios is an asset to make the team, but he has a good chance of making it, given his contributions on special teams. Berrios is excellent in space and could be a perfect #4 WR when Miami runs four sets wide. He is fast and runs good routes. He’s as close to a lock without being one on the list.

Many people still believe Ezukanma will be the odd man out, but the Dolphins still seem to believe in him and as a result he will get another season, at least initially. However, it would not be surprising if he were released. He will face good competition and young people looking to make a name for themselves.

The Dolphins like to hold on to their draft picks, and this year they have two that were drafted late in Day 3. Malik Washington and Tahj Washington don’t have to be great; they only have to be better than River Cracraft, which has demonstrated consistency and reliability. Still, at this point, the Dolphins may want to get younger, and having two rookies doesn’t bode well for Cracraft’s future with the team. Cracraft’s best opportunity to make the field will be to beat Ezukanma.

Predictions before camp: Hill, Waddle, OBJ, Berrios, Ezukanma and the two drafted rookies.
