Miami selected a small-school wide receiver with blazing speed in the fourth round, giving Henne an additional target as a deep threat.
Gates isn't big, old for a rookie at 25 years but I think he's a perfect addition to Miami's receiving corps. As a student at ACU, I've personally seen No. 8 blow right by defenders. Last season, Gates caught 13 touchdowns and had nearly 1,200 yards receiving, including six 100-yard games.
Gates can be a great third receiver, complementing Brandon Marshall's height and Davone Bess's ability to find holes in the defense.
Bess thrives in the slot and gaining yards after catch, and Gates, clocked at 4.35 on the 40-yard dash, can stretch the defense to open up more opportunities underneath.
Henne, though inconsistent and not the most accurate of quarterbacks, has a rocket for an arm and will force the defender to stick with Gates all the way down the sideline. He also has a good shot to be a special teams returner.
