So who is Leonte Carroo? He was a third round pick by the Dolphins this past draft out of Rutgers. At 6’ 211 pounds, he was consistently productive at Rutgers with back-to-back double-digit touchdown seasons with two different quarterbacks. He also proved his worth as a run blocker, which could help him get snaps if Adam Gase is as balanced as he was in Chicago last season. Going into camp, he is behind Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills on the depth chart.
It’s unlikely Carroo passes a receiver coming off 110 receptions and another that was a 1st round pick last season on the depth chart in training camp. Also, given Carroo’s less than head-turning 4.5 40-time, it is probably going to be difficult to pass Kenny Stills as a deep threat on this team. Adam Gase also said he “definitely” wants to get Kenny Stills more involved too. That doesn’t leave much opportunity for Carroo in his rookie season.
Carroo is not among our top-100 receivers entering 2016. Therefore, he should not be on your draft radar.
