Source: Dolphins schedule another wide receiver workout
The Miami Dolphins have been checking out a lot of wide receivers in preparation for April’s draft.
You can now add another name to the growing list.
Clemson wideout Jacoby Ford has an upcoming workout scheduled with the Dolphins, according to a league source.
The 5’9”, 186-pound speed demon caught 56 passes for 779 yards and six touchdowns for the 9-5 Tigers in 2009. Ford finished his four-year career at Clemson with 143 receptions for 1,986 yards and 16 scores.
A vertical threat with the deep speed to run past the secondary, Ford turned in the fastest 40-yard-dash time at February’s combine when he ran a 4.28. However, the 22-year-old is a bit undersized and could struggle to beat press coverage at the next level against the NFL’s more physical cornerbacks.
In addition to Ford’s upcoming workout, the Fish have also shown interest in Oklahoma State’s Dez Bryant, Notre Dame’s Golden Tate and Illinois’ Arrelious Benn, to name a few.
Miami’s first two picks include the 12th overall selection in the first round and the 11th selection (43 overall) in the second round.
