Miami's receiving and tight end corps is really, really bad. No way around it, they're about as bad as it gets for the NFL. Davone Bess would be, at very best, a #2 receiver on maybe five NFL teams.
The other receivers are Brian Hartline, Marlon Moore, Legedu Naanee, Rishard Matthews, and waiver pickup Anthony Armstrong. None of them would be a #3 receiver on any NFL team, and probably none besides Hartline would even be a #4.
Naanee looked horrendous in preseason, Hartline has battled injuries, and Matthews is a seventh-round pick. On the final episode of Hard Knocks, we saw that Moore made the team mostly because of his special-teams ability.
Even though Bess wasn't really featured at all during the series, it showed some great plays he made during preseason games, plays that will need to be made even more during the regular season.
Throughout the series, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman and tight ends coach Dan Campbell were constantly getting on the tight ends, particularly Michael Egnew and Charles Clay. They will both have to step up if Miami's passing game is going to be even average.
