    He sounds like a great prospect.

    I can’t wait to see the new-look offense in operation.

    I actually think this was a need pick. We are a bit undersized at WR, and I think that he is a guy we could use situationally.

    Looks like more of a blocking WR hopefully he pushes out Williams for that 4th spot.

    From what I've read, he's regarded as having among the best hands in this entire draft. Not a huge guy, not a true speedster, but he fights hard for contested passes and gives high effort. Boom- I'm thinking we fully replaced Parker in the 4th round.

    He seems like a very versatile player; the type of individual that McD likes.

    He compares to Parker and Ford, not Randy Moss. Lol And he's not as fast as any of them.

    When what you are about to post is so outlandish you preface it with "Don't quote me..." Maybe it shouldn't be posted.

    Seems like a solid prospect and he's being coached by Wes.

    I watched press interview with him and he seems high character. All the draft picks seemed like quality people all on the same page.

    But with Waddle and Hill on the roster, we have plenty of speed.

    Ezukanma can offer something different, especially if the first two are drawing coverage.

    Don’t forget about Cedric Wilson. Unless this kid is really special, I don’t see how he sees the field this year.

    Maybe he can return kicks so Tyreek doesn't get killed.

    And he has a three year contract.

    They must not want to be in a situation where injuries hurt as bad as last year

    All I’m going to say about this season’s receiving corps is this…

    If the ball is within your catch radius, you had better catch the damn ball! I LOVED Jakeem Grant but as much as I loved that little speed demon, I would get equally angry at him for missing balls that were right in his hands.

    LOL, Jakeem was one of my favorites as well. It was certainly a love/hate relationship though with those tiny hands and tiny catch radius. I almost feel like I can be an even bigger fan with him on another team, LOL.

    Why would you like a WR that can't catch the football? He made me ill every time he was back to catch a punt, kept waiting for a fumble

    I don't know, I guess because his chances of making the team were so tiny to begin with, I just loved seeing the little guy have some success.

    I like this kid's highlight reel. Great hands, good vision, a low center of gravity, and he doesn't stop trying to gain yards until he's on the ground. I can see him getting snaps.

    He interviews well. Ive watched a couple interviews with him. I'm liking the character of these picks and the players on the team.

    Ezukanma is the fifth-rated rookie per pff.com:

    5T. WR ERIK EZUKANMA, MIAMI DOLPHINS (91.0)

    Ezukanma has already flashed a complete skill set this preseason. The big-bodied receiver has not only won multiple times at the catch point (2-of-3 on contested targets), but he's also done work after the catch (three broken tackles) He’s hauled in eight catches on 11 targets for 132 yards on 36 routes run. The fourth-rounder provides a physical presence that complements the rest of the receiving corps in Miami.

    Ezukanma is going to be what we thought Devante Parker was going to be

    It's a tough crowd. He said "what we thought DVP was going to be", not "what DVP was". :lol:
