Miami Dolphins 2021 three round all offensive mock draft 1.0
By Nick Belotto
Pick 50 – Creed Humphrey, C Oklahoma
Remember what I said about young, talented offensive linemen? I still believe it one pick later.
Humphrey is a mauler at center and one of the more technically gifted linemen in the draft. He’s also crazy strong and a beast of a man. He could easily throw opposing defenders around from day one.
Unlike the Davis pick earlier, the Humphrey choice makes a lot of sense considering Miami’s lack of a starting center. Ted Karras only signed for a year in the 2020 offseason and while there is always a chance that they bring him back, Humphrey serves as a better fit for a young offensive line like Miami has already developed. That’s not a knock on Karras, who I thought played well in the 2020 campaign but Miami could benefit from Humphrey’s upside compared to Karras’ ceiling.
Humphrey could push to start from day one and round out a two draft spending spree on young, talented offensive linemen. Tua Tagovailoa could have all the time in the world to throw the ball and Miami’s running game would benefit holistically with someone like Humphrey blocking for them.
With Humphrey, Miami’s offensive trenches would be ready to go for the next decade if they ended up getting Humphrey in the middle of the second round.
