Former Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle was drafted No 6 overall in the 2021 NFL draft by the Miami Dolphins, where he would reunite with his former college quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa.

While the Dolphins season ended without a trip to the playoffs, the future looks bright, especially with Waddle wearing aqua, white and orange.

In his first season, Waddle broke the NFL record for most receptions by a rookie. He surpassed Anquan Boldin’s record of 101 set back in 2003, Waddle finished the 2021 season with 104 receptions.

In total, the young wide receiver had 104 catches for 1,015 yards and six touchdowns, while also scoring a rushing touchdown.
