Draft Grades: Dolphins Make a Big Splash!

Draft Grade:  B+


The Picks

1. Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon

2. Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State

3. Dallas Thomas, G, Tennessee

4. Will Davis, CB, Utah State

5. Jelani Jenkins, LB, Florida

6. Dion Sims, TE, Michigan State

7. Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida,

8.  Caleb Sturgis, K, Florida

10: Don Jones, S, Arkansas State


Biggest Needs: 


OT – DB - DE


What they did right:

Miami pulled off the most dramatic move of the draft by trading up for the 3rd pick and taking DE Dion Jordan out of Oregon.  They were also able to add talent to most of their biggest need positions.


What they did wrong:

Time will tell if their bold move in the first round pays off or if they would have been better served by taking OT Lane Johnson.
