The Miami Dolphins added another talented piece to their wide receiving corps in the first round of the draft, to go along with their 2nd round pick last year.

Last year, it was LSU WR Jarvis Landry who came in the second round and caught 84 passes for Miami, 5 of them for touchdowns.

This year, the Dolphins used the 14th overall pick to grab Louisville WR DeVante Parker. He was the third wideout off the board this year. Parker only played six games for the Cardinals last year, but he’s got a nice combination of size, speed and athleticism.

After the first round ended, Bills GM Doug Whaley took notice of Parker’s selection by Miami and what it means in the AFC East.

“This division, we’re stacking up good players,” Whaley said. “We think we have some.  But we’re going to have to compete against them.”

After parting with Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Brandon Gibson, the Dolphins needed to add another pass catching target for Ryan Tannehill and they got a good one in Parker.
