Miami Dolphins WR's A Big Area Of Concern

The wide receiver issues for the Dolphins might be a bit more concerning after their performance against the Falcons on Friday night. Going into that game, it seemed as if at least four receivers were sure to make the roster, but from The Phinsider's perspective, all but two should be fighting for their jobs at this point.

Davone Bess and Brian Hartline have been the most consistent so far this preseason, while Chris Hogan, B.J. Cunningham and Marlon Moore are still fringe guys who didn't catch any passes against the Falcons.

From Kevin Nogle:

Maybe the biggest frustration was the lack of receiver (and tight end) ability to hold on to a pass when they got their hands on the ball. Seven of quarterback Ryan Tannehill's incompletions last night came on drops.

That's obviously a problem. It's not like Miami has a quarterback that can make the receivers look better than they are. Tannehill could turn out to be pretty good, but he's still a rookie. Having a shaky group of receivers will only make his job and development more difficult.
