No team needs help with their receiving core more than the Dolphins, who get some with this selection.
Hopkins has been underrated leading up to this point, as the man absolutely dominated more than any other receiver at his position in 2012. While other names such as Keenan Allen and Cordarrelle Patterson keep being thrown around consider that Hopkins went for 82 receptions, 1,405 and 18 touchdowns. Say whatttttt?

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill is a promising prospect, but he needs more than Davone Bess to throw at. Bess is a nice slot receiver, but Hopkins can provide that intermediate target who can break tackles and cause havoc in the open field, a la Dwayne Bowe of the Kansas City Chiefs.
If Hopkins goes to South Beach, it will be a very nice fit of team and need.
