The "Worst" Recieving Corps in the NFL

peter weberContributor IApril 6, 2017

Anybody who read mock drafts all the way down to No. 25, irrelevant Miami, would see that a good majority of people thought Miami's WRs were horrible.  Looking at the numbers, most might take that base-less accusation back. 

The Dolphins had 491 passing attempts, taking it to a normal situation (taking out Brown or Henne throwing it) they only had 476 pass attempts.  476 pass attempts would rank 25 for most in the league, way below average.  They did however run 448 times, which is 12th. 

So they obviously, by league standards, ran more often, and passed less than most teams.  That will greatly diminish your total receptions, and twist numbers to make them seem a lot worse. 

Now I want to clear something up with everybody.  There is no difference between a TE catching the ball, and a WR catching the ball. 

That is were most people come from, because the Dolphins would frequently pass in two TE formations, which is almost unheard of in today's Satan/Spread offenses (listening to old people talk, there's no difference).

Out of Miamis top eight leaders in receptions, only three are WRs (two TE, three RB).  They averaged 35 receptions each, and to ease concerns, their only three significant WRs (Camarillo, Bess, and Ginn) they averaged 55 receptions between the three of them. 

I don't know how many teams can say that, 11 maybe?
