Pick #7 Robert Hunt, G/T, Louisiana-Lafayette: With experience lining up at every position but center, Hunt brings the type of versatility to the line that Brian Flores covets. There is a question whether Hunt is better suited to right guard or right tackle. Wherever he lines up, Hunt will bring a nasty/mean streak to the line that the team hasn’t seen since the days of Richie Incognito.
The prediction here is that the potential abbreviation of the offseason will mean that Hunt begins the year battling for the right guard position but could eventually replace Jesse Davis at right tackle; if not this year then next.
Pick #24 Raekwon Davs, DL, Alabama: At 6’6″, 311 pounds, Davis is a scary physical specimen. Why did he last till the second round? Scouts can’t determine why he was dominant in 2017 (8.5
sacks) but seemed to disappear for most of 2018 and ’19. Was it because he became the focal point of the opposing offense or an inconsistent motor? It’s up to Flores to unlock his potential.
Davis spent most of his time at Alabama playing DE in Saban’s 3-4 defense and it’s reasonable to expect that’s where Miami will continue to use him. However, Davis does have the ability to kick inside and play defensive tackle and even on the nose going forward. Wherever Davis plays, he is stout at the point of attack and will be expected to help improve the Dolphins ailing rush defense.
