The Miami Dolphins have yet to complete the deal for the 2021 NFL Draft. At least, they are not based on ESPN’s Todd McShay. After the Dolphins moved from the 3rd overall position back to 12th, the Dolphins swayed for a week in the first round of the draft. They made this move with the assistance of the San Francisco 49ers, and then Miami immediately moved 12th. The pick was handed over to the Philadelphia Eagles. For the sixth overall pick, McShay allowed Miami to move forward again in his 2021 NFL mock draft 2.0.
His version of this prediction includes two rounds, providing Miami with four draft picks. He asked them to trade in the first round, but did not start trading until the second time. With their No. 1
Adding Smith makes sense and provides Miami with another offensive weapon that can encircle Tawaioloa, especially when it is a former teammate, so the learning curve between quarterback and receiver should be more small.
Dolphin’s trade fun begins again with their next choice. Instead of waiting for the 18th pick, Miami moved up to the 16th place, telling the Arizona Cardinals “McShay (McShay) predicted “more picks”, “may be selected in the third round (81st). No.) or similar to the fifth round” (156th) and the fourth round in Arizona in 2022.” McShay explained Miami’s trading preferences this year, he wrote: “But if there are four in the first two rounds A draft pick, if there is a player you are obsessed with, you can afford it.”
With the newly won 16th overall pick, McShay asked Miami to pick guard Alijah Vera-Tucker from the University of Southern California (USC). He explained: “With DeVonta Smith assisting Tua Tagovailoa, we can now seek protection. Vera-Tucker has made tackles, but he is more suitable for NFL guards. Miami took 34 last season. Sack, Tagovailoa was struck by lightning at the fourth highest rate in the league (35.3% of his goals conceded).
This choice surprised me. Miami can use the help of offensive lines, but selecting guards here is definitely a new thing in the mock draft. Is this a deal? McShay added safety to Trevon Moehrig from TCU’s 17th pick, although he did mention Vera-Tucker as an option. I think Miami will sit at 18, or join Vera-Tucker (if he falls into them), or look at players like Virginia Tech’s tackle Christian Darrisaw (19th on the Washington football team), if they Was designated as an offensive winger by this pick. You can double the position for Florida catcher Cardaris Tony (to the Chicago Bears in 20th place), and this move will make them Smith and the current Deventer Parker or Michigan On the defensive end, Kuwait’s slot receiver Paye (21st in the Indianapolis Colts) is also 18th. Alabama’s Najee Harris (24th in the Pittsburgh Steelers) and Clemson’s Travis Etienne (Travis Etienne) (New York Jets) The 23rd in the fleet) are all top defenders.
Entering the second round, the Dolphins returned to the 36th overall pick. McShay predicted that they would choose Oklahoma’s defensive end Ronnie Perkins. He explained: “After the two offensive picks on Day 1, Miami turned to the other side of the ball and got a pioneer who quickly closed at the quarterback. Only six games last season. , Perkins lost 5.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles.”
Perkins was here to make the passing of players like Paye in the first round even more chaotic. The Dolphins need to solve the edge sprint problem, and Perkins will do it.
McShay chose LSU center back Jabril Cox, placing the Heat in 50th defensively. He wrote: “After focusing on offense in the first round, the Dolphins now continue to focus on defense. They took a preemptive approach at the beginning of the second day, so the defender seems appropriate here. Cox is good at reporting- He has 9 career interceptions-can replace Kyle Van Noy.”
If he proves to be a cover asset for the hard and difficult Dolphins in the past few seasons, then this might be a good choice. Miami may be looking to add a guard this year to eliminate a hypothetical starting group in three of the four positions, including Jerome Baker, Bernardrick McKinney and Andrew Van Gonk You.
I can understand some of McShay’s reasoning about the first two rounds of Miami’s Smith, Villa Tucker, Perkins, and Cox, but there are still some questions that need to be answered.
