Rd2, Pick ?: Anthony Walker Jr., LB, Northwestern
2017 needs to be all about reshaping the Dolphins defense. There’s no reason to reiterate how bad Vance Josephs unit has been this season especially down the stretch.
Even worse than the secondary was the middle of Miami’s defense. Running backs exploited Miami all year mostly due to injuries and guys not playing their natural position. Kiko Alonso, for example, has played the middle linebacker spot all season but he’s much better suited for the weakside.
Anthony Walker Jr. just declared for the draft within the last week. He made it official when he signed Drew Rosenhaus to represent him throughout his professional career. Of course we all know the relationship Rosenhaus has with everyone in Miami.
Walker Jr., a native of Miami, would fill an immediate need as a 4-3 ILB. The 6’1″, 235 lb former All-American should be available when Miami picks in round two but it’s still early.
