Every year someone is always giddy about the Miami Dolphins draft and many are not. This year is no different. Everyone views the draft in their own way. Did the Dolphins reach at 19? Did they reach in round three? Should they have traded back, traded up, or not at all? Those are questions that no longer will or can be answered because the draft is over.
As one reader pointed out, no one should grade the draft after one weekend. While there is nothing accurate about it, it is a good barometer on the popular opinion or on the secular opinion. So rather than me stick my neck out and then get crucified for having an opinion I would like to know what you, the Miami Dolphins fan thinks about this draft and the players they drafted.
The grading is simple. A, B, B-, C, D, and F. It’s your opinion so what grade you give is up to you.
I have rated this draft a C. It has thus far NOT been the popular opinion. I feel the Dolphins risked a little too much going so far in with smaller school players and I think they would have done better trading down in round one and trading up in round three. That being said there are some gems in this draft that I am excited about seeing. Jarvis Landry could be a major acquisition for this team and I do like the future potential of Jordan Tripp. Walt Aikens is another player I look forward to seeing develop. As for the offensive line goes, it should be shored up if James can transition to the NFL where he will face immense pressure from opposing DE’s. Billy Turner is a raw talent but a talent we may not see on the field until 2015 on a regular basis.
So what is your thoughts on this draft? Anonymity can sometimes be your friend.
