Miy top Five players the Miami Dolphins should draft with pick 11
By Brian Miller
Baker Mayfield – QB – Oklahoma
Despite what I said previously, Mayfield is the only player that I would want Miami to draft that would not be a day one starter. Mayfield has an “it” factor that rubs a lot of people the wrong way but there is no denying the fact that he has a lot of potential and upside to go along with a loud leadership voice.
The Dolphins need someone who can be vocal and if it comes from the quarterback position that is icing on the cake. Mayfield has those traits and he has a big arm that can make most of the throws required at the NFL level.
With Ryan Tannehill locked into the team at least through the 2019 season the Dolphins have a opoprtunity to let Mayfield learn the NFL ropes and the system. He would provide a solid back-up option should Tannehill get injured again. That can’t be understated. Miami needs a back-up that they can groom for the future, challenge Tannehill’s position, and one that can change the future of the franchise.
I believe that Mayfield has those qualities and tools to become highly successful at the next level despite the quirks he has in his personality. It’s big there is no question but Miami could use a big personality running it’s offense.
