Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle received the highest of compliments earlier this week from the team's new receivers coach Wes Welker, who suggested the 2021 No. 6 overall pick is similar to Tyreek Hill with the ball in his hands.
'I think it's acceleration, especially like when he gets a ball in (his hands). .... it's kind of Tyreek Hill-ish, how he's just able to get that ball and really burst out of it. A little bit different body types and stuff. But that's what came to mind whenever I was kind of watching him coming to Alabama and seeing him on film here,' Welker said.
Huddle Up: It is entirely possible that Waddle will struggle to top his NFL rookie reception record of 104, but it is also extremely unlikely he will ever repeat his low yards per catch (9.8). Both numbers were a product of how bad Miami's offensive line was. What is clear is how explosive and dynamic Waddle is, and it sounds like the new regime plans on taking advantage of it. With Waddle drawing Hill and Deebo Samuel comps from the offensive brain trust, fantasy owners would be wise to make him a priority in 2022 drafts.
