Round 2, pick 49
North Carolina LB Chazz Surratt
The former QB turned LB has been dazzling for the resurgent North Carolina Tar Heels and head coach Mack Brown. Surratt has been nothing short of a leader for the Tar Heel defense. AT 6’2” 225 Lbs, Surratt plays bigger than his numbers, and I am interested to see how he runs at the combine.
Being a former QB, Surratt understands the complex nature of offenses and flows well with them. Currently, Surratt has 42 tackles on the season, through six games last year he was at 46 ending the season with 115 total tackles and 6.5 sacks.
While Surratt will have to bulk up as he heads to the NFL, the way he flows on defense reminds me of the San Francisco 49ers Fred Warner. Recently, Warner’s play allowed the team to move on from former Pro-Bowler Kwon Alexander. If he can continue to develop at linebacker, Surratt has the ability to become a special pro in the league.
Round 3, pick 80
University of Tennessee IOL Cade Mays
Coming out of high school, Cade Mays was a 5-star recruit who was committed to the University of Georgia. That was in 2017, fast forward to 2020 and he’s a projected third rounder at the University of Tennessee.
Mays could be headed for the second round with a strong junior season, but for now he fits the Miami Dolphins well. The Dolphins have been reworking their offensive line and this year they have the best line they have had in years. That doesn’t mean they won’t look to bolster it even more.
While at Georgia, Mays played every single position on the offensive line and has the possibility to be a valuable depth piece for the Dolphins, especially in the third round. While the team went offensive line heavy in the past draft, building the line should still be an absolute priority when you just now placed your presumed QB of the future.
