Falcons Vs. Dolphins: Game Will Provide Clarity At WR

The Miami Dolphins hope to answer some of their questions at the wide receiver position when the Atlanta Falcons come to town for Friday night's preseason game. SB Nation Dolphins blogger Kevin Nogle at The Phinsider takes a look at who should make the roster at WR.

Davone Bess and Legedu Naanee are the only two receivers on the roster who are assured a spot with one more preseason game to go before rosters are cut down to 53 men. Nogle makes a case for Julius Pruitt and Brian Hartline to claim two more of the spots, Pruitt mainly as a special-teams standout. Hartline has recovered well from a calf injury. Hartline should be the third receiver if not pushing Naanee for a starting role.

That would seemingly leave two spots for Clyde Gates, Roberto Wallace, Chris Hogan and Marlon Moore, none of whom have made much of a splash this preseason. Wallace in particular has been counted on by coaches to emerge from the pack, but has yet to do so.

The Falcons and Dolphins meet at 7:05 p.m. ET Friday night in Miami.
