Miami lands their wideout after trading back with the Panthers
After trading down with the Carolina Panthers, the Dolphins move back and still get their guy in Alabama’s Devonta Smith. In addition to adding Smith, the Dolphins are also able to land an additional second-rounder, giving them three, as well as an additional first and second in next year’s draft.
Signing former Texan’s star wideout Will Fuller gives Tua Tagovailoa a big-time weapon and a much-improved wideout core. Adding Smith to a core that has Fuller, Devante Parker, Preston Williams, and Mike Gesicki on offense is a major improvement to what the Dolphins had last year.
Smith would almost exclusively function out of the slot with Parker and Fuller commanding a majority of the attention of the outside it would be a major win.
With his elite route running, reliable hands, and good speed, Smith has all the tools to be a top-flight wideout in the NFL. His biggest knock is his weight which is just around 175 Lbs, but he did not have a major injury history during his time at Alabama.
Including the trade down, the Dolphins would almost receive a perfect grade on this move alone. The priority in this draft should be making life as easy as possible for Tagovailoa, and taking Smith and adding more picks would drastically improve that.
