Ryan Tannehill will likely enter the season with a cool new contract extension and two talented weapons on the outside.
Parker had a decorated career at Louisville and became the first wideout in school history to get drafted in the first round.
The pick has some fortuitous timing as the Dolphins are hoping to reward a clear progression from Tannehill last season after setting career-high marks in completion percentage, yards and touchdowns.
In Bill Lazor's scheme, Parker could be the star that the vertical Mike Wallace was never able to be.
Behind Amari Cooper and Kevin White, he separated himself as the third-best wideout in the draft early.
