All food names seems like a farce but there is credibility in how the draft is looking to go down. And it provides a lighthearted look toward the Miami Dolphins concerning the draft.
This notion had been used jokingly on social media. However some of the names have also been matched to the Miami Dolphins in idle talk and also in media circles. Some of the names are high-profile players that almost any fan would love to have on their perspective teams.

"” Howard is considered the crown jewel in an exceptional class of tight ends. His experience in a pro-style offense suggests that he should be able to contribute immediately” Rob Rang CBS Sports"
"“Foster might just be the most explosive defender in the entire 2017 draft. An intimidating face-up hitter with sideline-to-sideline speed” Rob Rang CBS Sports"
"“what Peppers lacks in size he makes up for with ferocity and speed. Michigan featured him on offense, defense and special teams and his NFL team would be wise to do the same” Rob Rang CBS Sports"
This trio will most likely not be there at 22 barring some unforeseen circumstance or a trade.
Looking at the current Miami Dolphins roster there doesn’t seem to be any food names on it besides Andrew Franks and Jarvis (Juice) Landry. This next group of players have the highest probability of landing on the team most likely in the first round of the draft.
"“Similar to (Justin) Tuck when he entered the NFL out of Notre Dame, Charlton has a large and long body type with the body flexibility and strength potential to be grow into an above average defensive end in a four-man front.” Dane Brugler CBS Sports"
"“Cunningham looks more like an outside linebacker for a 4-3 alignment than a traditional inside linebacker for a 3-4 scheme. He isn’t always the cleanest tackler but as his statistics suggest, he certainly gets the job done.” Rob Rang CBS Sports"
"“NFL COMPARISON: Zach Martin, Dallas Cowboys — While unfair to compare him to an All-Pro NFL lineman, Lamp has a similar square blocking style as a college left tackle with the technique and tenacity to dominate in smaller quarters.” Dane Brugler CBS Sports"
If the Dolphins go for a DE with the first pick Taco Charlton seems to line up the way things pan out now. The same could be said for Forrest Lamp should OG be the targeted first pick. After running three different mock drafts on Fanspeak from three different list providers I was able to duplicate both scenarios. And Jabrill Peppers was taken just ahead of that first 22nd pick a lot also. Zach Cunningham is also a possibility in the first round although a bit of a stretch with the food name to the aforementioned.
Some other food names in the later rounds.
He compares to Jabrill Peppers in that he can play a lot of positions having played both running back and on returns. But being undersized is a hindrance as far as the draft is concerned. CBS has him projected to go in rounds 3-4 and reviews have him best utilized as a slot corner. I have a feeling he will slip through the cracks during the draft because of the Miami Dolphins present needs. But if picked would give both Jakeem Grant and Bobby McCain a higher degree of incentive toward improvement.
This injury could cause him to fall in the draft. But the lack of a need at this position would be a deterrent.
On his pro day he improved on a lot of measurables. The LB is projected to go around round three as Tony Pauline points out.
"“he brings as much pound-for-pound force behind his tackles as anyone in the draft. Productive player with good instincts and a nose for the ball. He has value as a 4-3 OLB” Lance Zierlein NFL Events who is Projected Round: 5"
Reviewed as an under-sized back up safety projected to go in round seven or FA. But come one the guys name is Fish. What better named player to play on the Miami Dolphins and fit the food draft?
With all this food a Dalvin Cook would be needed. But that recipe is a pipe dream as he will be going high and doesn’t fit a need.
Did I leave any food names out? Both in the draft or on the current roster? Leave any missed in the comments below.
