It’s finally draft day Fins fans. The biggest draft in Miami Dolphins history will take place tonight at 8 PM ET. Now let’s dive into the picks.
Trades: Lions receive pick 5 pick 56 Pick
Dolphins receive pick 3
Browns receive pick 18 pick 141 2021 2nd
Dolphins receive pick 10
Round 1 pick 3: Tua Tagovailoa, QB
There have been tons of rumors swirling around this week but I think Chris Grier has had his eyes set on Tua for the past 2 years. The Dolphins also reportedly passed his physical.
Round 1 Pick 10: Jedrick willis, OT
The Dolphins passed on signing an OT in free agency. I expect them to take one early this draft. However, I don’t expect Chris Grier to sit back and settle with Josh Jones or Austin Jackson. Pairing Tua and Willis would be a great first round already.
Round 1 pick 26: Caesar Ruiz, IOL
The Dolphins signed Ereck Flowers and have a 2nd year returner in Michael Dieter on the oline. The Dolphins got their starting RT earlier and now they get their potential center/guard that will compete with Ted Karras.
Round 2 pick 39: J.K. Dobbins, RB
The Dolphins have interest in all of the top 5 RBS. Dobbins at 39 is an amazing value and you pair him up with Jordan Howard you got a great duo.
Round 3 pick 70: Ashtyn Davis, S
Davis can do it all back there. He has tremendous speed and strength. Pairing him with his DB coach from college in Miami would be amazing. In this case, Bobby McCain would move back to the nickel which is what he is best at.
Round 5 pick 153: Lynn Bowden, WR
I said he was a WR but is he? Bowden is a Taysom Hill-like player. I think he will mostly play slot WR but he has experience at QB,RB, and KR/PR. He is the type of player Brian Flores wants. Versatile and has that ‘X’ factor.
Round 5 pick 154: Leki Fotu, DT
The Dolphins drafted Christain Wilkins last year and have Davon Guadchaux who is still very young and has shown lots of potential. Wilkins, Fotu, and goudchaux along with Ogbah moving between DT and edge would be a very good versatile rotation for Brian Flores’s defense.
Round 5 pick 173: Darnay Holmes, CB
I expect the Dolphins to draft a CB in the later rounds. Holmes would be a good addition to an already beefed up secondary.
Round 6 pick 185: KJ Hill, WR
Will Hill be here this late in the draft? Probably not. But with a stacked WR class it could happen. Hill would make the roster and battle for some playing time in the slot. This pick would be great value and would give the WR room some competition.
Round 7 pick 227: James Morgan, QB
You may be asking, why another QB? To add more competition of course. A QB room of Fitz to mentor young Josh Rosen, Tua Tagovailoa, and James Morgan could be something to watch. Morgan is the biggest sleeper QB in the draft.
Round 7 pick pick 246: Colton Mckivitz, OT
The Dolphins add more depth here for the O-line. Colton could potentially develop into a starter in the future. He has 4 years of experience at West Virginia.
Round 7 pick 251: Charlie Taumoepeau, TE
Mike Gesicki is developing into one of the better receiving TEs in the league. However, blocking is an issue for him. Taumoepeau would compete with Durhyme Smythe to make the roster or even to be TE # 2.
This draft should be exciting!
