No one will forget the Dave Wannstedt drafts. Some still haunt the Dolphins to this day. That is what precisely happened in 2001 when the Dolphins selected Jamar Fletcher with the 26th overall pick. Fletcher was never going to beat out the duo of Patrick Surtain and Sam Madison and Miami was in good position with quality depth. What they needed was a quarterback.
Wannstedt had his faith firmly settled in Jay Fiedler. As such he passed on Drew Brees who has carved out a Hall of Fame career.
In round two Wannstedt got it right with drafting Chris Chambers followed by Travis Minor and Morlon Greenwood. Both solid contributors. Greenwood spent four seasons in Miami starting 51 of 62 games. Minor stayed in Miami for six seasons scoring eight touchdowns.
Chambers time in Miami ended in 2007 when he was traded to San Diego just before the trade deadline. Fletcher? He lasted three seasons and started six games.
Who was the best?
