Dolphins select WR Matt Hazel in sixth round

I told you in my column today the Dolphins are down on Rishard Matthews. They drafted Jarvis Landry in the second round and today in the sixth round they just picked Matt Hazel out of Coastal Carolina.

Hazel, a 6-1 and 195-poiunder, owns all the CCU receiver records. He compares himself to Denver's Demaryius Thomas but ran a 4.5 time in the 40-yard dash at the Indianapolis Combine.

"I thought I was going to go a little higher really," Hazel said.

Hazel played at the East-West Shrine game and impressed multiple scouts.

"I felt like a lot of teams told me I was the best receiver there," Hazel said.

According to Nolan Nawrocki in his NFL Draft 2014 preview Hazell "hears footsteps" and has "alligator arms."
