Miami Dolphins make the most of their trades in this new mock draft

Miami Dolphins select Pitt DB Paris Ford at 82 and Costal Carolina EDGE Tarron Jackson at 183
There are many rumors that have the Dolphins releasing both Eric Rowe and Bobby McCain due to the salary cap issues. That would mean adding a safety would be a priority for the team in the draft and Ford was the best available at that point.
Ford is an interesting safety who has some issues he needs to fix. He takes weird angles when making tackles, but when he is able to get to the ball carrier he is able to make a play. Ford also recorded six interceptions in his last two seasons at Pitt and displays decent ball skills for a safety.
Ford would be expected to take on a large role in his rookie season, and will be likely to fit a role that is best suited for him as a coverage safety with Brandon Jones playing closer to the box.
EDGE is a position that has proven very vital in the NFL, especially with the type of athletes that have begun to take over the league. Adding depth at the position is important and Jackson could be a decent late round stud.
At 6-foot-2.5 260 Lbs, Jackson had steller numbers in his past two seasons at Coastal Carolina and will be considered a prospect heading into the NFL. With 18 sacks and 23 tackles for loss in 2019 and 2020, Jackson showed he has the ability to get into the backfield.
The Dolphins would use Jackson as a rotation pass rusher.
