Miami Dolphins: 7-Round mock draft to transform the franchise
By Jeremy Klump
Miami trades Pick 123 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Pick 137 and Pick 253.
It is always odd to see late-round trades in mock drafts, but stay with me here: there is a reason the Miami Dolphins made this move. After trading back and picking up the last pick in the draft, Miami gets former Florida Gators defensive tackle Tedarrell Slaton. He is a UNIT! He stands at 6-5 and weighs around 360 pounds. Slaton would be a great rotational defensive lineman that can line up at the nose right away.
Pick 208 for Cornell Powell seems like a long shot because his film is intriguing. The 5th year senior from Clemson rarely saw the field in his first four years at Clemson. However, in year five, he impressed everyone with his 52 receptions, 882 yards, and seven touchdowns.
He isn’t the biggest guy, and he isn’t the fastest guy, but he works hard and gets open. I feel like he is being slept on in this draft class because it is so deep, but this kid showed he belongs, in my opinion. I think he has a chance to become a No. 3 receiver in the NFL that you can trust to compete and make plays every single week.
Miami Dolphins trade Pick 253 to the Tennessee Titans for offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson.
And this is why the Dolphins traded back, to trade this pick to the Tennessee Titans for 2020 1st round pick Isaiah Wilson. It would be best for everyone involved for this move to happen. According to Wilson, Wilson and the Titans are done. The Titans can save some money by trading him. Imagine the irony of getting the Mr. Irrelevant pick for the player that will be remembered forever in Tennessee as one of their biggest draft busts.
Wilson is a risky addition, but for a 7th round pick, it is a no-brainer for the Dolphins. If he becomes a problem, they can cut him and move on. If they can revive him, I think at the very least Wilson can be useful. I see him as the 3rd tackle that can come in on short-yardage and get after it in the run game. It also wouldn’t hurt to have him as your depth for any guard or tackle spots.
