The Miami Dolphins’ undrafted free agent haul of 2019 provided the team with significant contributions — a credit to the team’s scouting department and front office but also an indictment of the readily available talent on the team’s roster come the start of the season. It required a number of separate variables to allow some of Miami’s UDFAs to crack the starting lineup, and getting into the rotation in 2020 should prove to be a tougher test.

So which of Miami’s three prominent UDFA contributors from 2019 is most likely to take the biggest share of snaps in 2020?

2019 snaps: 450

Williams will have a starting wide receiver role waiting for him in 2020 — once, of course, he’s healed from the 2019 ACL tear that ended his season at the halfway point. Williams’ recovery will be a big story to watch, as the Dolphins did not address their wide receiver group with any other additions this offseason. Could Williams be ready to rumble by Week 1? Or will he start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and miss action as he continues his rehab?
