When the Dolphins selected Randal “Thrill” Hill with their first pick in the the ’91 draft many believed that the deep threat for Marino had arrived. Hill however held out of camp and after one game in which Hill was active but did not play, Don Shula cut his losses and traded him to the Cardinals for a 1st round pick in 1992.
While Hill will go down as a bust, the Dolphins were able to recoup the loss of the selection.
Miami found more success with 9th round pick Scott Miller. Miller was a depth player only but spent all 5 of his NFL seasons with the Dolphins.
For the Dolphins however the real gem came in round five with the selection of LB Bryan Cox. Cox had a brash attitude on the football field. Playing with fire and old school physicality, Cox forever endeared himself to the Miami fans when he gave the Buffalo fans in Orchard Park, NY the single finger salute.
Who was the best?
