Miami Dolphins Draft Analysis: NFL Draft 2022

Whatever. The Dolphins only had four picks, but the got Tyreek Hill from the Chiefs. Draft picks are only good to get cheap parts. At this point, the team needs superstars to add to an already good value mix. Even so …

– Among all of the Georgia defensive players, LB Channing Tindall was one who slipped through the cracks. He needs to take over a spot right away on the inside. WR wasn’t really a need, but Texas Tech’s Erik Ezukanma was a decent idea in the fourth.

– There’s a problem when two of the four picks came in the seventh round. Considering Kansas State QB Skylar Thompson was one of them, this draft is all about whether or not Tindall can play – and hoping Tyreek Hill is Tyreek Hill.

Miami Dolphins Needs, Pre-Draft Analysis: NFL Draft 2022

If you’re reading the other team breakdowns before the draft you might notice a theme – most of them have to crush this draft because they’ve biffed so many of them over the last few years. Not Miami. For the most part, the Dolphins have done a wonderful job of getting value-producers with most of the early picks the’ve had. But …

– The Dolphins got Tyreek Hill. Consider him your 1st, 2nd, and 4th draft picks traded away to Kansas City. This draft is already a win. Even so …

– Having the 102nd overall pick isn’t that awful. It’ll take a flier to get a starter, but with the 102 and the 125 the Dolphins should be in a position to get a decent need position to try out.

So who’ll be there in the third round for Miami? Getting a running back is a must – even after coming up with a few options in free agency – and finding parts for the interior of the offensive line would be nice. Either one can happen at the 102 with centers Luke Fortner out of Kentucky or Cameron  Jurgens out of Nebraska each a terrific option who could stick.

Running back-wise, Georgia’s James Cook or Texas A&M’s Isaiah Spiller would be a wonderful value get in the third.
