We can stop acting like Leonte Carroo was drafted by the 2013 Denver Broncos. Miami had one startable receiver last season, and that receiver occupies the bottom-tiers of both efficiency and athleticism. The other hurdles to Carroo’s success are an as-yet unproven and often-injured first rounder, and a speedy journeyman with no identity on this offense.
Leonte Carroo is going to ascend. He basically has to. When a historically dominant prospect falls to a team that absolutely loves him, we need to pay attention no matter who is standing in the way. In this case, Carroo’s closest competition may prove to be little more than bear food. “Reach” for him at the end of the first round, try not to get bitten in the process, and laugh all the way to the bank in seasons to come.
