The Dolphins select Shaun Wade and Ben Cleveland in the third round
Former Ohio State corner Shaun Wade was a project first-round pick in last season’s draft before opting out and returning to school. It wasn’t the best idea for Wade, but if he can land with Miami it could be worth it.
Reports have been out there that Miami may be looking to add another corner in the draft this year and having Wade available at pick 82 could be a blessing in disguise for the team. Sadly, every time I watched Wade in Ohio State games this year, mainly the College football playoffs, he was on the other end of a big play.
Wade does have high potential, especially since he was considered a first-round last year, and Miami could be looking for additional competition at the nickel spot.
If the Kansas City Chiefs’ loss in the Super Bowl proved anything it is that you need a good offensive line to win games. After losing their two starting tackles, their depth was not up to par with what was heading at them in the form of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense.
Miami should take from this lesson and look at adding depth along the front line. Ben Cleveland played almost his entire career at right guard for the Georgia Bulldogs but also participated on special teams.
Cleveland will give the Dolphins another option along the offensive line and a solid piece to move around in case of injury.
