Wyoming Cowboys quarterback Brett Smith is a sleeper prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft class, and his top target from last season is one of the sleepers at a very deep wide receiver position. Robert Herron is just 5’10”, 187 pounds, but he figures to be a third-round pick due to his blazing speed, ability to work out of the slot, and pre-draft interest.
Per a source close to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Miami Dolphins are working out Herron today and tomorrow, and this visit close to the draft is an important one to watch, especially since it’s a two-day workout. The Dolphins already have a very talented trio of wide receivers in Brian Hartline, Mike Wallace, and Brandon Gibson with Charles Clay at tight end, but they are interested in adding a mid-round wide receiver. If Herron comes at an affordable price, then he could be a good choice for them, as they could use some depth at wide receiver.
Herron has also worked out for the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints, and those are two other teams looking to add a complementary wide receiver to their offense. The former Wyoming standout could be a very good complementary piece due to his agility, quickness, long speed, versatility, and hands.
