The Miami Dolphins suffered an early season loss of Ryan Tannehill, their quarterback, and turned to recently retired Jay Cutler to salvage their season. Cutler did not deliver, but it wasn’t all his fault, either. The offensive line was not good, and the defense had big deficiencies, as well.
The Dolphins would love to have Quenton Nelson here, but we had him go just two picks prior. They may think about trading up to Chicago’s spot, who lost several picks obtaining Trubisky last year.
If they cannot trade up, I think that there are a couple of linebacker prospects worth considering: Roquan Smith from Georgia, or Tremaine Edmunds, from Virginia Tech. Smith appears to be the better athlete, and although not very big for an inside linebacker (6-1/4 and 225 pounds), he has very good speed (estimated at 4.54). Many scouts consider him a Top 10 player, and he certainly fills a need for Miami.
