I’m not going to comment too much here, because I’m far more curious about what you our readers and other Dolphans have to say.
My overall grade of this draft is a D. It’s not an F, because some of these guys are fantastic. But it’s also not an A, B, or even C because of the baffling positions they chose to fill.
I’m excited to hear rave reviews for Minkah Fitzpatrick and Kalen Ballage. I’m amused to hear that our new tight ends each can only do one thing. I’m puzzled why we drafted an unneeded DB and a kicker who only makes 60% of his field goals. I’m upset that we addressed our biggest needs (gap-filling, run-stuffing linebackers) by drafting two skinny coverage linebackers.
I’m most angry that we did nothing to bolster the defensive line.
Dolphins Management created huge voids and then failed to fill them. They spent two valuable picks at positions where we were already decent, and spent zero picks where we were (still are) horrible.
Final questions: Can you name me one game that we lost because of MarQuis Gray or Anthony Fasano? I cannot. But I can certainly name you about 12 games in the last 2 years that we lost because our line and linebackers can’t stop the run. Given that, would you yourself draft 2 more tight ends or draft to bolster your line and LBs?
