Grading the Miami Dolphins off-season moves ahead of the draft
By Pablo Rosero
The Miami Dolphins have focused more on filling needs than making big splashes in the 2021 NFL free agency.
The Dolphins are coming off a shocking 10-win season and have been trending in the right direction ever since the team first hired Brian Flores from the New England Patriots. However, the team is now seeing major expectations.
Along with four picks in the first two rounds, including the third overall pick, the Dolphins had a good amount of cap space heading into free agency. The team used a majority filling needs and bringing in-depth, but they managed to make two major splashes: one in the form of trade and one in the form of a signing.
These grades are subjective and could change depending on different moves.
Trading for Isaiah Wilson
After the Dolphins made the move for the 2020 first-rounder out of Georgia, and the speculation lasted for three days. Wilson was cut from the Dolphins three days after the team made the deal due to a multitude of accidents.
It is safe to say that Wilson is one of the NFL’s biggest busts over the past decade. He made no impact for the Tennessee Titans and was more of a headache than a football player.
It will be interesting to see what happens with Wilson next, but his agent will have a very tough sale to make if he wants to play in the NFL again.
