    Every year, following the NFL Draft and the signing of undrafted free agents, we take a look at the Miami Dolphins’ roster player-by-player. We take a look at the player’s performance last year, where they could progress or regress in 2018, and what they chances of making the 2018 roster is. We work our way through the roster, one player, one day at a time.

    We will start today with wide receiver Leonte Carroo, who could be facing a make-or-break training camp and preseason.

    I never understood the 'magic' of Carroo that caused Gase to trade up for him. One of the few BIG misses, I guess. His biggest problem IS the trade up and having to live up to that. I admit I'm not a Carroo fan and doubt, given the competition, he can redeem himself. We shall see.

    Leonte Carroo - feel bad for the guy because he gets a lot of hate because of Tannenbaum's mistake...with that said, he will be known as the last guy to wear 88 before Gesicki...who will do enough to have the number retired.

    I’m a bit surprised because he was really good in college. Oh well, it is what it is.

    Problem must be between the ears.

    We have really seen very little to date from Carroo. He allegedly has good hands but what is the main knock on him? Why hasn't he been given more opportunities to show us what he can do? I know that he was behind players like Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker but he must have stunk it up at training to get so few opportunities in games.

    Rooting for him to make the squad, he needs a lot of run in preseason to see what he can bring to the table. I wouldn't give up on him too soon, if Parker went down he's good insurance. Not the same skill set but he's big and can move the chains

    This is just assumption, but I am assuming he is very tight hipped and struggles in routes. Good size, good hands, good straight line speed and from all accounts a very hard worker. Hard to imagine someone with all those traits being so bad.

    The coach who pushed for Carroo is no longer in that position.

    Maybe without Landry getting all the targets we'll find out if Caroo can play. Grant, Parker and Stills will also get more targets and now we have threats at TE. There are a ton of targets for RT to throw to including Drake, Ballage and Gore. The offense will be much less predictable and MUCH better than last season.

    The kid was doomed as soon as we drafted him. It was a big mistake to trade up for a guy we didn't have room for. 3 guys were ahead of him and nothing was going to change that. It was a horrible trade and a bad situation for him to be in.

    Considering that the only proven player we have on the team is Stills. I think the door is wide open for Caroo and anyone else who proves themselves. I mean three guys that can't stay healthhy a guy that is at best a slot receiver with tremendous speed but puts the ball on the ground.to much and drops have also been a issue.

    I think if they were counting on Carroo they wouldn't have gone out and gotten Wilson and Amendola. There's just no way he'll be ahead of the top 5 guys,Parker,Stills,Amendola,Grant and Wilson.......if we keep 6 guys he'll have to beat at least 2 or 3 other guys that also play ST's. If he can do that then great but don't hold your breath.

    I think Ford beats him out for the final spot, if they keep 6

    If the Phins have no plans to use this kid, then we should trade him and at least get a pick.

    Considering who's in front of him yet again, he'll be lucky to be the last WR on the roster.

    Nice article, tell you the truth I don't remember seeing him out on the field, blended in to well...looked back at his scouting report and he has some physicality to him 6'0" 216 so he may be the biggest Dolphin receiver not named Devante Parker and had a late 2nd early 3rd round grade from Lance Z...wouldn't count him out just yet. Runs 4.5 and almost everyone else is 4.45 or faster but agree needs to find his niche.

    I personally don't see how Drake hardly seen the field when Ajayi was here, what Drake did was elite in back half of season 2017....so he could be a jem waiting for his time to shine.

    Interested in seeing him in camp and preseason. Our WR room is loaded but I just have a feeling we could trade Parker still. If we showcase Parker early and often in preseason it could be coming. Could also be why we picked up his option.

    We'd probably get an 8th round pick for him

    I believe Carroo was suppose to be a top position type slot reciever tough guy coming out of college. He should be a prime canidate to replace Laundry if true. When we drafted him at the time I thought that might have been the plan but I thought it was early.

    I can't wait to see if Caroo gets some opportunities this year. He was no slouch coming out of college. Another Jersey guy...

    If Carroo was ABLE to replace Landry then we don't get both Amendola and Wilson. I believe he will be battling a roster spot with Isaiah Ford......and it is Ford's to lose.

    “As far as Carroo goes, we saw huge strides in practice, knowledge of the offense,” coach Adam Gase"

    I wonder if he was one of the guy's that didn't 'process' the playbook well enough to get on the field? He seems to have the talent, although maybe a tad slow, and as Nappy said' tight hipped"...

    This right here.

    I’ll still hold out hope for him but he needs a strong preseason

    Carroo hasn't done jack squat since being drafted. It's put up or shut up time for him.

    Trade him? For what and to who? He has zero trade value. We'd be lucky to get a moldy sandwich for him.

    I remember when the 2016 being excited when we drafted Carroo and annoyed by drafting Kenyan Drake so high. Guess that's why I'm not a NFL GM.

    I think we will carry six receivers on the roster because of Parker and Amendola's history with injuries but think that will be Ford over Carroo at this point.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Carroo needs to have an out of this world pre-season to get playing time. Wouldn't be surprised if Miami traded him for a low round pick.
