The 1999 season would be the last for Jimmy Johnson and the final season for Dan Marino. Unfortunately for Johnson he could not solve the problem at running back. In his four drafts Johnson drafted five running backs. Including two first round picks and a third rounder.
In 1999 the Dolphins spent a first on JJ Johnson and a second on FB Rob Konrad. In round five they drafted Cecil Collins. It didn’t help. The Dolphins did not get the amount of production they were hoping for.
In the case of Collins, off-field issues curtailed his career before it got started. He played in eight games for the Dolphins. J.J. Johnson lasted until 2001 and was then out of football. Collins never played in the NFL again.
Rob Konrad made a name for himself as a top full back on the roster playing until 2004 having spent his entire six year career in Miami.
Who was the best?
