Dolphins Draft Needs
RB, C, OG, QB, FS
15. Miami Dolphins Select: OG / C Mike Pouncey
For the second year in a row a Pouncey is taken in the first round of the draft. Mike Pouncey is a very good move for the Dolphins as they need to improve on the interior line. This is a good move for their running game and it will be interesting to see who they start this season at the running back position.
Draft Grade: A
62. Running Back Daniel Thomas
Interesting pick as we don’t know if the Dolphins will keep Ronnie Brown around or invest in him begin the top option this season. Daniel Thomas has some big games last season and will wear down defenses.
111. Wide Receiver Edmond Gates
174. Tight End Charles Clay
231. Defensive Tackle Frank Kearse
235. Defensive Back Jimmy Wilson
