Miami Dolphins: Select Devante Parker in 1st Round
At 6’3” and 209 lbs. Devante Parker is a physical force to be reckoned with. He has the physicality one looks for in a top receiving threat and the grit and mental fortitude to overcome an unfortunate obstacle like a broken foot. He has been getting comparisons to A.J. Green and looks to make the Dolphin’s offense much more of a strength. It looks as though Miami has found a legitimate number one receiver, someone who can exceed the underwhelming production of Mike Wallace in the recent past.
Parker ran a 4.45 40 yard dash and should be a fantastic intermediate route playmaker. He was credited with only three dropped passes in his college career with Louisville, an eye-popping statistic indeed. Devante can catch anything in sight, or out of sight it doesn’t seem to matter. The big thing is the Dolphins got a player they can rely on. Hopefully, if all goes well, he will remain a Dolphin for years to come.
It seems Parker’s skill set matches up well with that of Anquan Boldin. Devante is a big physical receiver that doesn’t drop any passes and whom can consistently move the chains. This is the type of player the Dolphin’s desperately needed. Not a deep threat that disappears for long stretches of time, but a consistent play maker whom Ryan Tannehill can count on.

One of Landin’s fondest memories was his youth baseball team narrowly missing out on the opportunity to play in the Little League World Series Final. Unfortunately, during high school Landin was forced to forget his originally preferred sports as a freak basketball injury nearly ended his life. All prospects for Division I sports scholarships evaporated. Despite this set back, Landin focused his energies in new modes, becoming an All-State musician, avid sports journalist and by "Bodybuilding" to stimulate and heal his body.
