The NFL Draft is all about finding a contributor with each and every pick. Dylan Cole could provide the Miami Dolphins as being a mid-late round gem.
14 teams were in attendance of Missouri State’s pro day on March 22, including Miami. Others that came out include those in attendance were Arizona, Washington, Kansas City, Jacksonville, Denver, Philadelphia, Carolina, L.A. Rams, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Detroit, Oakland and Seattle.
Every team that came out were given a show. The 6′, 240lb linebacker, as Draft Diamonds said, straight up murdered his workout.
When you don’t get invited to the NFL Combine you have to show up strong at your pro day to get recognition. Cole obviously did just that, making a lot of money in the process, too. The numbers he put up at his pro day would’ve put him at the top of the list at this years NFL Combine.

To really put it in perspective, Cole had just as many bench reps as Ndamukong Suh and had a higher vertical than Odell Beckham Jr. Cole actually put up 36 bench reps last Summer all while calling out draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. and Adam Schefter.
Following the pro day Miami scheduled a private workout with the former Bear as did the Cardinals. Surely he’s supplanted himself as a draft-able product with only room to grow as he conducts his personal team workouts and interviews.
The Dolphins need more depth at linebacker. Depending on how the next month goes they may or may not have the luxury of waiting around to address it by drafting Cole in the latter half of the NFL Draft.
