Miami made some pretty decent selections in ’74 from TE Andre Tillman to Clayton Heath. The Dolphins selected 22 players in the ’74 draft and ten made an NFL roster. Unlike the previous season, all but one player spent at least part of the season in Miami. Most however played at least two years or more.
Benny Malone was a solid back-up running back who contributed to the team. Randy Crowder a 6th round defensive tackle also played well. DB Jeris White stayed with Miami for three seasons.
It was however a receiver in the 3rd round that has managed to still belong to the Miami Dolphins over 40’s years later.
Nat Moore is currently the president of the Dolphins Alumni Association and a major figure with the franchise. Outgoing and personable, Moore consistently takes the time to engage with fans. His 13 seasons in the NFL were all played in Miami. He was a favorite target of Bob Griese and David Woodley as well as Don Strock and of course Dan Marino.
Who was the best?
