1. Jameson Williams
The only reason a player with Williams’ elite ability might be available for the Dolphins at No. 29 is that he is still recovering from a January ACL injury. He might not be ready to go when training camp begins and there’s a chance he’ll need to start the regular season on the shelf.
Everything else about the former Alabama star screams potential superstar. He might lack the size to be a No. 1 on the outside but he can turn into an exceptional weapon for Miami in the slot. His burst as a route-runner and ability to produce yards after the catch will keep opposing defensive coordinators up at night.
Williams’ inability to work out prior to the draft while several other receiver prospects raise their stock could push him down to the bottom of Round 1. That’s a big-time evaluation mistake by teams picking ahead of the Dolphins if he does find a way to slip all the way to No. 29.
Miami fans should regard Williams as their best-case outcome on draft night. They might have to wait longer than they’d like to get him on the field, but he could turn into the sort of difference-maker that suddenly makes Tagovaila look like a top-10 NFL quarterback.
