Each year it is exciting to see six or seven rookies take the field but the Miami Dolphins have 11.
From Tua Tagovailoa all the way to running back Malcolm Perry, the Miami Dolphins have a lot of new faces on their roster just from this past Aprils draft. We could go into each and every individual and how they fit but the exciting part is we don’t know exactly where these guys will play or how they will fit into the schemes just yet.
What we will get to see is if Robert Hunt and Austin Jackson can break into the starting lineup. We will get to see how the Dolphins and Flores use Igbinoghene. Another exciting defensive prospect is Raekwon Davis who actually elicited an exciting reaction from Flores during the draft when he was taken. How will that virtual fist pump translate to the field?

Brandon Jones will mix it up at safety and we are still only in round-3 of the draft. Another top defensive prospect, Curtis Weaver wasn’t drafted until round five and could become a major contributor down the road on the outside edge. Guard Solomon Kindley taken in round four has a chance to compete for a starting job eventually as well.
Then we still have Jason Strobridge a high-prospect DE out of NC. Finally, Blake Ferguson, a 6th round pick and the aforementioned Perry, will play unique rolls with the Dolphins. Ferguson is the new long-snapping center. All in all, the rookie class alone is going to be a lot of fun to watch.
