11: Miami Dolphins
Selection – Tremaine Edmunds – LB – Virginia Tech
Some believe that Edmunds may end up being the better linebacker of he and Roquan Smith. Edmunds is a very solid laterally moving linebacker who has very good anticipation and the speed for pursuit.
The Dolphins are in need of upgrading their linebacker group and while quarterback may be on everyone’s mind the reality is that the Dolphins need to fix a unit that has been downhill since Zach Thomas left.
Baker Mayfield is going to get a lot of talk at 11 without question but Miami also likes local product Mike White. White started for Western Kentucky and loves the Miami Dolphins. He is a pro-ready quarterback who played in a system that should help him transition to the NFL. The problem is White may not last until the 2nd round as his stock continues to rise. White has been projected to be drafted anywhere between rounds two and three. A solid senior bowl helped get him noticed and the NFL Combine could raise him higher.
What Miami does at 11 will be very interesting as it could change how they approach the rest of the draft.
