Best Miami Dolphins draft picks of last 15 drafts
By Brian Miller
2003 NFL Draft – Yeremiah Bell
The 2003 draft for the Miami Dolphins was deplorable and marked a turning point in the Dolphins franchise. This would be the final draft class of Dave Wannstedt as 2004 would be handed to Rick Speilman. Wannstedt couldn’t get much right with this class as the years of bad cap management and traded draft picks finally began to catch up to a team that was heavily reliant on great defensive play.
Wannstedt chose Eddie Moore in round one and the rest of the class wasn’t much better but one player stood out above the rest. Safety Yeremiah Bell.
Bell had a great career in Miami that lasted eight seasons. He ranked near the top of the NFL at his position for several of those years and finished his career in Miami with six interceptions. In 2012 Bell left the Dolphins and joined the Jets for one season before finishing his career in Arizona a year later.
By far the best draft pick in this draft, Bell taken in round six, the last of three sixth round picks became a fan favorite.
The rest of the class however made little impact on the Dolphins roster.
