5. O.J. McDuffie

O.J. McDuffie became Miami’s fourth all-time leading receiver, tallying 415 receptions for 5,074 yards and 29 touchdowns. Throughout his career, he broke multiple receiving records, including leading the NFL in receptions in 1988. McDuffie began primarily as the Dolphins punt and kick return man, earning fourth most in the NFL with 1,072 return yards his first season out. In 1997 he was removed from special teams altogether, and started every game as wide receiver leading the team with 76 catches, 943 yards and eight touchdowns. He became a member of the 1,000 yard reception club in 1998, recording a career high and league-best 90 catches. One of Dan Marino’s favorite targets in the 90s, McDuffie was a threat not only with his hands, but route running abilities and elusiveness.
