Dolphins sixth-round WR Matt Hazel will miss multiple practices due to a concussion.

Hazel's head injury is unlikely to linger, but we still like to keep a record of concussions. The small-school rookie is battling for a spot on the roster as a developmental slot man.

Dolphins signed sixth-round WR Matt Hazel to a four-year contract.

Hazel has experience in the slot and is a good route runner with sticky mitts. He's going to have a heck of a time cracking the roster. Hazel will compete for the No. 5 job, along with guys like Damian Williams and Rishard Matthews.

The Miami Herald considers sixth-round WR Matt Hazel a long shot to make the Dolphins' 53-man roster.

Hazel is a good route runner and sure-hands catcher, but lacks special qualities and is a slot receiver on a team that already has too many of them. Locks to make the Dolphins' roster at wideout include Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and second-round pick Jarvis Landry. Brandon Gibson is another good bet, assuming his knee checks out. Hazel will compete for the No. 5 receiver job.

Dolphins selected Coastal Carolina WR Matt Hazel with the No. 190 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Hazel (6-foot-1, 198) set a school record for career catches (183) with the Chanticleers, racking up 2,553 yards (14.0 YPR) and 28 touchdowns. He ran 4.50 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-10 broad jump. Hazel has slot experience and showed excellent route-running chops in January's East-West Shrine practices. A natural hands catcher, Hazel has a chance to develop into an inside-the-numbers No. 3 receiver in the pros.
