Johnson did well enough finding players that could contribute but his drafts seem to produce one, maybe two stars. ’98 was no different.
The Dolphins drafted RB John Avery in round one but it was DB Patrick Surtain in round two that was the star of the draft. Surtain spent seven years in Miami before being traded to the Chiefs for his final four seasons.
Avery lasted only a season and a half before being moved. 4th round picks Lorenzo Bromell lasted four sesaons in Miami and 2nd round pick Kenny Mixon lasted four as well. The rest of the draft class didn’t pan out at all.
Surtain and Sam Madison would form one of the more dynamic shutdown corner tandems in the NFL through their career together.
Who was the best?
