Deep Stash – Isaiah Ford

With the departure of Jarvis Landry among others, there are over 200 vacated targets in Miami for 2018. The Dolphins have acquired a bunch of mediocre assets in Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson. I think Devante Parker may finally have a chance to step up and be the WR1 that he was drafted to be, along with the return of Ryan Tannehill. However, I think there is a space for someone else to step up.Through the early running of camp, someone who appears to be doing just that is 2017 7th round pick, Isaiah Ford. In fact, he’s been referred to as “The Offensive player of the Summer so far”.

Dolphins coaches considered Ford to be the steal of the draft last season before missing all of his rookie year due to a meniscus injury during the preseason. Coming off that injury with a point to prove, Ford started off camp with a bang. Following through to the Dolphins’ first preseason game, Ford hauled in a TD versus the Buccaneers.

Ford was drafted out of Virginia Tech where he had 3 strong seasons before entering the NFL draft. The former high school basketball star was graded as a chance to become an NFL starter, by NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein. The 2nd Team All-ACC was projected to be a day 2 selection, before going late on day 3 to Miami. A full breakdown of his college production can be seen below:

Many Dolphins fans are calling for Ford to get a chance with the first team offense and he certainly has many exciting traits. The 6’1” 195-pound Receiver has speed for days and combined with great leaping ability, is a force for any DB to handle.

Despite being an impressive athlete, he lacks a bit of the refinery and natural instincts for the position. He doesn’t have vacuum hands, elite routes, or an ability to adjust to throws. However, with such rave reviews and a lack of established top-end talent ahead of him on the depth chart, I believe he’s worth a stash.

I did a new startup draft recently and added Ford in the 29th round. At that price, he’s as close to free as it gets. With an opportunity to become a WR2 on the team, that is a price I’m more than happy to pay.
