Miami Dolphins: Post free agency 7-round 2021 mock draft
By Jeremy Klump
The Miami Dolphins get Tua Tagovailoa’s blindside protector at Pick 18.
Okay, yes, I was wrong about Isaiah Wilson taking the Miami Dolphins’ help when they traded for him. I predicted the trade would happen, mainly because Miami would be the only spot for Wilson to succeed and revive his career. I cannot control a person not wanting the help he is offered, and neither can the Dolphins, so that is why Wilson was released. I wish the kid well, and I am pulling for him to figure out his life.
Now that we got that over with, I believe there is a hole at right tackle for Miami. I thought Wilson would be the guy, but now I believe right tackle may be a spot the Dolphins target early in the 2021 NFL Draft. Penei Sewell will be the most popular name, and deservedly so. He is a monster, and if the Dolphins decide to take him at No. 3 instead of Pitts, I would understand it. That doesn’t mean I think it would be the best move, though.
Pitts is too rare to pass up, and you can add another great right tackle option at Pick 18. That right tackle is former Texas offensive lineman Samuel Cosmi. The former Longhorn is one of the most gifted athletes at the position. He is a 6-6, 314-pound beast that runs a 4.84 40-yard dash, had 36 reps of 225, and had great jumping numbers.
That all sounds good, but can he block? Pro Football Focus graded Cosmi as the highest-rated pass blocker vs. ranked teams in 2020, and they have him graded out higher as a pass blocker than Sewell (by 0.3). So as you can see, this kid isn’t just an athlete; he is the real deal.
Drafting Cosmi allows Miami to move Robert Hunt to right guard and Solomon Kindley to left guard. So one draft pick would improve three positions. This is a no-brainer to me.
