Miami Dolphins Draft Pick With Most Immediate Impact

The NFL draft has come and gone, and Miami finds itself entering the middle part of the off-season with an exciting roster. Ireland pulled the trigger and shocked the NFL world by moving up and taking DE Dion Jordan over OT Lane Johnson with the number 3 overall selection. I personally loved the move. While lineman are vital to keeping a quarterback safe and improving the rushing attack, they are not game changers. Jordan is a freak athlete with a tremendous upside. However, in my opinion, Dion Jordan is not the Dolphins draft pick with the most immediate impact for the team. For me, that player is CB Jamar Taylor out of Boise State.

Whether or not you liked Miami’s selection of Jamar Taylor with the 54th overall pick in the draft, it was a pick that made sense. Miami’s secondary was downright awful at times last year, and resulted in the expulsion of Vontae Davis and Sean Smith. I believe that Taylor will come in immediately and earn the starting job opposite of newly acquired Brent Grimes (should he be ready come week 1). I see Taylor beating out Richard Marshall, Will Davis, and Nolan Carroll for the starting job. Taylor is a physical player who can stay with speedy receivers and is tough at the line of scrimmage.

Which newly drafted Dolphin do you think will have the most immediate impact ?
