Draft landscape

This is the deepest receiver draft class in more than a decade, which means tons of late-round picks could potentially become productive NFL starters. This draft features plenty of whatever type of receiver your team is looking for, and there's no rush to take one. The same can't be said about tight ends, where there are about half a dozen good ones, and a lot of filler. Team with need: Receiver - Eagles, Giants, Packers, Lions, Panthers, Saints, Buccaneers, Seahawks, 49ers, Rams, Jets, Steelers, Ravens, Colts, Jaguars, Broncos, Chiefs, Chargers and Raiders. Tight end - Giants, Packers, Falcons, Buccaneers, Seahawks, Patriots, Jets, Dolphins, Bills, Steelers, Texans, Chiefs and Raiders. Dolphins' perspective: The Dolphins don't have an immediate need at either receiver or tight end because there are playmakers presently on the roster, but there are no guarantee that will be the case in 2015. Charles Clay, who had a breakout season last year, is entering the final year of his contract, and Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson's contract put them at risk of being released in a year or two if their productivity doesn't remain high. The Dolphins need to find offensive players who are threats in the red zone, and can produce run-after-the-catch yards. Waiting to address those needs could handcuff Ryan Tannehill.
