Dolphins looked gift horse in the mouth on both Jenkins and Moehrig and went 'Nah'.I like how our roster is coming together. Flores’ first year, in the wake of Gase’s malpractice and mismanagement, we had a total crap roster. Our acquisitions were voluminous and basically used a coarse filter. But now, year by year we are into the fine filter zone.
I think we drafted three good players yesterday. I would have done it differently but it’s not like we got bad players. My first choice would have been to get Barmore at 36 and then keep Eichenberg on the tradeup and then draft a safety in the third round. Maybe Jamar Johnson. I was very interested in Meinerz in the third but, what can you say, Flores was around him all week and passed. I will defer on that.
So how does this look
Otherwise, if they wanted the second round safety and tackle, you could have gotten Jenkins and Moehrig who were both available at the spots we picked.
They always give them a A after every Draft over the years. Strange that considering all I've been hearing lately is how the Patriots drafting has been average to poor over the last few years. Stinks of bias but im not suprised as I'm still seeing the usual butt kissing by certain media pundits and reporters.They just pencil in an A plus for them no matter who they draft it seems
Thank you @Nublar7 !
This is just some of the high praise the Dolphins draft is getting nationally.
Not adding one of the top 3 running backs does sting, but Miami added likely added four day one starters so far. Hunter Long I understand is not a real position of need in 2021, but he is really good and is great insurance when it comes to contact extensions for Gesicki and Smythe(though I di expect Gesiki to get a long term deal).
I also think this shows how strong the overall roster has become in recent years under Grier and Flores. The roster only had a few holes entering the draft and now they have the ability to make some picks for the future.
This was a very good draft so far.
I’m looking at all our possible WR/TE combos that we could put on the field at the same time, and I just don’t see a way we wouldn’t have multiple mismatches with Fuller, Waddle, and any other 2-3 players from that group. Hard to blitz when you have to stretch the coverage that thin.
