Miami Dolphins – Play-Maker Analysis – WRs

All it takes is one buzz word from an NFL GM to set the entire tone of an off-season. Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland did just that a couple weeks ago. In an interview at the Senior Bowl:

“We’re looking for play-makers on offense. Look, we had two guys with over 60 catches but we’ve got to find guys that are scoring touchdowns,” Ireland said, via the Palm Beach Post. “This is the year that you got to do something.

Despite this, he had a stellar 2011 season, making big plays versus talented and well coached defenses. He had continued success in 2012 but was hampered by a minor knee injury that caused his production to dip.

Keenan has exceptionally quick feet for a player of his size, good lateral movement skills and has adequate ability to get off the jam. He is versatile and can fit just about anywhere in the formation, but has the makings of a Continue reading
